NextPrevious CVSCVSCVSCVS CITY Visual Systems 5 Commonly asked questions Q: Will this system save me money? A: YES. In some cases the savings have been upto 80%. This system has been proven to be effective in providing optometric tests directly relevant to VDU use. All people failing the test will be referred on to an optometrist for a full eye examination. The system makes the whole process more effective and efficient, saving time away from the office and also identifying if a new prescription works well. Q: What are the legal requirements ? A: Every employer is expected to provide under the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 provision for vision screening to be provided “… as a means of identifying individuals with defective vision who need a full eyesight test” Q: What is the City Vision Screener ? A: It is a software program designed to assist the end user obtain the ideal working environment it was developed and tested with the Department of Optometry and Visual Science, City University, London and independently tested at Warwick University, University of Sydney, Austraila, the University of Aarlen, Germany, and the principle optometrist for the R.A.F. Q: How is it different from an eye examination? A: It only looks at the particular features that are directly relevant to VDU use; some of which are beyond the optometrist’s area of expertise. It does not look for eye disease nor does it measure the VDU users’ prescription. Should a user take regular medication or is experiencing any problems with their eyes, then they should attend for regular eye examinations as recommended by their optometrist. However, this system is sensitive enough to detect if the user is suffering from any problems with vision. Q: How will it help? A: For example, if the results are less than expected, the VDU user will be referred for a full eye examination. © CITY Visual Systems
