Increase employee retention and satisfaction

Health insurance ranks higher than annual leave for job seekers and employee satisfaction, yet major health insurance providers lack affordable and adequate vision coverage.

By providing vision insurance you demonstrate your employees’ value.

Increase productivity

Vision problems can lead to up to a 20% decrease in productivity. This can amount to a full day’s work by the end of 1 work week. Blurred vision can make it difficult to perform essential tasks. Eyestrain may lead to more serious issues, all affecting the quality of work.

Due to long hours on screens, regular eye care has never been more of a necessity.

Our vision

We give access to your employees to check their vision from the comfort of home, or the office. A quick vision screener will let them know if they have any issues, and they can book to speak to a UK registered optometrist within minutes.

Discounts on corrective lenses or contacts mean employees avoid eyestrain and improve productivity and overall quality of life.

Employee wellbeing

Vision benefits for staff is a cost-effective way to reduce health-related absenteeism, increase productivity and reduce health care premiums.

Vision insurance is not yet commonplace in the recruitment market, so it’s a great way to outshine your competitors by showing you care.

Importance of eye health

Changes and abnormalities within the eye detected by an optometrist or ophthalmologist can be signs of diabetes, cancer, hypertension, high cholesterol, and other health problems.

An early diagnosis means patients can start treatments before the issues worsen. This can potentially reduce long term healthcare costs and maintain productivity.
