Eye-Care for Employer
|New Eye-Care Benefit for Employers Only
Employers are increasingly focused on increased productivity and better employee wellbeing.
Did you know that one in four Irish families are affected by sight loss, which for employers means increased healthcare costs and expenses due to lost productivity. Further costs are incurred by employers due to other undiagnosed medical problems such as diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol many of which can be detected early through a comprehensive eye exam.
Most people are totally unaware of the importance of regular eye examinations and only seek advice when a problem presents or their vision decreases. With limited cover in place either through the State or private health insurance, the cost including frames, lenses etc. falls on the individual consumer.
