Lund University is legally obliged to provide glasses for computer work for employees who spend more than an hour a day working with a computer screen and where normal glasses are not sufficient.

Eye examination

Under Swedish Work Environment Authority regulation AFS 1998:5, Section 6, employees who normally work on a computer for more than an hour a day are to have an eye examination. “An eye and eyesight test shall subsequently be provided at regular intervals and whenever the employee reports discomforts which may be connected with the visual demands of the work.”

Agreement with Synoptik

Lund University has a government procurement agreement with the optician chain Synoptik. This agreement includes eye examinations. If the eye examination shows that special work glasses for screen work are required, the agreement also covers lenses and frames from a basic range.

What to do

  • Always inform your head of department/manager of sight problems at work.
  • Complete the form below.
  • Once you have completed the form, it must be signed by your head of department/manager.
  • Make an appointment for an eye examination at Synoptik. Take the completed order form with you.
