Specsavers opens driver eyecare eVoucher scheme to small fleets

Specsavers Corporate Eyecare has now made its Driver eVouchers easily accessible to smaller fleets.

There is no contract, and no tie-in. Employers can make a one-off purchase of as few as just five eyecare eVouchers. Other advantages for small businesses include an online management system for easy administration of eVouchers: freeing up valuable resource.

Once purchased, Driver eVouchers are simply emailed to the relevant employees, who take them to their most convenient Specsavers store to redeem them for the corporate eyecare they require. Real-time updates show when vouchers are redeemed, to ensure staff are benefitting and to facilitate management.    

Different eVouchers are available for different requirements, including DSE eyecare and Safety Eyewear as well as Driver Eyecare, so the employer knows their health and safety responsibilities are being met under these specific circumstances – a further boon for smaller companies who can find it onerous to keep on top of a number of industry regulations.  

As budget constraints make it harder to offer employee benefits, something as simple as eyecare can be highly valued by employees, with its wider benefits for health and wellbeing. An eye examination can check the health of the eye itself and, by examining the blood vessels at the back of the eye, an optometrist can even detect and monitor serious health conditions like diabetes, arthritis, multiple sclerosis and cardiovascular disease. 

Jim Lythgow, director of strategic alliances at Specsavers Corporate Eyecare said: ‘What we are offering is effectively pay-as-you-go eyecare. There are no tie-ins, and this makes it particularly achievable for SMEs to offer driver eyecare and is proving incredibly popular with smaller companies. While cost-effective, the employer still benefits from trusted and experienced eyecare professionals.’
