Volvo Car UK has become the first company to sign up for Specsavers Corporate Eyecare’s newly-launched Driver Eyecare eVoucher.
Selwyn Cooper, head of business sales for Volvo Car UK said: “We have worked with Specsavers Corporate Eyecare for some time.
“We were pleased to hear about their plans to introduce an eVoucher aimed specifically at driver eyecare and agreed that we would implement this voucher for our business sales field team as soon as it became available.
“We distribute the vouchers electronically to the relevant employees and leave the rest in Specsavers’ capable hands.”
Particiapants produce the Driver Eyecare eVoucher, either on their smartphone or as a printout, at their most convenient Specsavers store.
This entitles them to a full eye examination, which will assess not just their sight over distance but other areas such as peripheral vision and the ability to switch focus between near and far objects.
The eye examination can also cabable of picking up other health issues, like diabetes and high blood pressure.
If the Volvo employee is found to require corrected vision for driving, they will be offered glasses, the cost of which is automatically covered by the voucher.
Those not requiring corrected vision to drive will be able to chose a pair of non-prescription sunglasses, also covered under the cost of the voucher.
