How do Edenred Eyecare Vouchers work?

1. Your employer will give you your Eye examination vouchers either when you ask for them or automatically.

2. You can then use them to cover the cost of a full eye test with an optician of your choice. Edenred corporate eyecare vouchers are accepted by over 96% of optometrists across the UK.

3. The optician will keep a record of the test and give you a date for the next one.

4. If you need glasses specifically for VDU work, your employer will give you a Spectacles voucher to cover the cost.

5. You can then choose the pair of glasses you really want at any opticians where Eyecare Vouchers are accepted.


How much are Eyecare Vouchers worth?

Edenred Spectacle vouchers come in denominations of £10, £55 and £75. The £10 top-up vouchers can be used to cover special prescriptions, while the £75 vouchers can be used for bifocal or varifocal lenses.

The vouchers cover the cost of basic glasses, but if they don’t fully cover the cost of the pair you want, you can still use them and make up the difference.


Types of Vouchers

Eye examination vouchers

Employers are legally obliged to pay for eye tests for employees who use VDUs as part of their work.

Once an employee has had their eye examination, a certificate of recommendation will be issued by an optician. The results determine whether you are eligible for a Spectacle voucher, specifically for VDU work.
