Section 14-4. Examination of employees' eyesight in connection with work at computer screens

Employees who, on a regular basis and as a material part of their work, work at computer screens, shall be offered eye and eyesight examinations performed by a person with the requisite qualifications:
  • before they start working at a computer screen;
  • at regular intervals thereafter, if necessary; and
  • if they experience sight problems that can be due to their work at the computer screen.
Employees shall be entitled to undergo an examination by an eye specialist if warranted by the outcome of the examination and tests mentioned in the first paragraph.
If warranted by the outcome of the test or examination, and if ordinary eyesight correction aids cannot be used, the employees shall receive special eyesight correction aids that are suited to their work.
The costs of special eyesight correction aids shall be covered by the employer.
