Vision Screening

No skill is so important as that of vision. It provides the individual with control over his/her relationship to the environment. Substandard vision need not penalise most otherwise healthy persons. People with deficient sight skills can attain adequate vision if professional eye care is obtained when needed. This is why Vision Screening is playing an important role in industry.


In industry, a comprehensive screening programme can provide a general overview of employee’s visual disorders, detecting those where corrective action should be taken. Vision Screening Tests are a means of identifying individuals with defective vision who need a full eyesight test. Using the Keystone VS-II, we carry out fourteen tests of nine visual functions, not just visual activity alone.

VISION SCREENING PROCESS

After completing a vision screening questionnaire, the Vision Screening Test will be carried out using the Keystone VS-II. Results will be discussed with the employee and if necessary referrals to an optician will be advised. A report of the results will be forwarded to the employer. Screening can be carried out at Nuffield House or on Company premises. Each test takes approximately 15 minutes.


FREQUENCY OF TESTING (As a Guide)

Vision screening is advisable at Initial Medical Assessment and then 2-yearly thereafter.
