In accordance with the Display Screen Equipment Regulations 2007, NUI Galway as the employer has put the following eye and eyesight test arrangements in place for those staff who are defined as employees for the purposes of these regulations: 

Eligible staff must first complete the Eye & Eyesight Testing Application Form and have it authorised by their Head of Unit.  This form is then sent to the Health and Safety Office and an eye and eyesight test voucher is issued to the eligible employee.  Where staff require corrective appliances i.e. glasses exclusively for their University work on display screen equipment, this is verified by the optician and the cost of this will be covered by the voucher.  Single vision lenses only are covered by this scheme.  Any additional costs that the employee chooses to have must be paid by the employee themselves.
