Eye Care Plan

Employees who work with a VDU for more than one hour per day are entitled to receive a vision examination paid for by VMware. In addition, VMware must also contribute towards the cost of glasses if it is determined by the test, that they are specifically required for VDU work. The frequency of new spectacles is restricted to a change in lens prescription as judged by the optician, typically every 24 months.


All regular employees are eligible to claim for a vision test and glasses, once every 2 years.


Crowley’s Opticians, in  Cork will carry out the free eye tests and VMware will pay the first €70 on any purchase on the day if you qualify for VDU usage as determined by the Optician.

How to Claim

Crowley’s Opticians will come to the medical room in Behan House and provide on-site testing and dispensing, please look for e-mails from Human Resources with further instructions on booking your appointments online. You may also call to their offices on Grand Parade for the exact same treatment and under the same conditions.
