Sehtest und Bildschirmbrille

According to the Federal Statistical Office, almost 70 percent of 25 to 54-year-olds and around 60 percent of Germans over the age of 55 spend time in front of a computer screen every day - hard work for our eyes!

Six steps to screen glasses

The illustration describes the six steps to VDU glasses.

1 The employer offers the G 37 eye examination.

2 The company doctor carries out the eye test and decides whether there is a visual impairment.

3 He then issues a certificate, which is sent to the employer.

4 The employer issues the employee with an order form for the eyewear provider.

5 The provider manufactures customized screen glasses.

6 The employer bears the costs and settles the account with the provider.

Key points:

1 Selection of "multifocal" lenses, often called business glasses (no single vision lenses, no progressive lenses, no bifocal lenses!).

2 The price per pair of glasses including a frame from the zero tariff collection with business plastic lenses with a refractive index of n=1.6, with super anti-reflective coating, hard protective coating and easy-care coating is just under €150.00 gross = €125.00 net (assuming a framework agreement between the employer and the provider).

The picture shows a multi-focal lens for screen glasses with a description of the field of vision, which starts at 40 cm (reading books) and ranges from 70-80 cm (recommended distance to the screen) up to an average distance to the calendar on the wall or to the front door.
