Do employers have a duty to provide an eyesight test or to pay for corrective lenses for employees who do not use display screen equipment?

No. An employer must pay for an eyesight test and, if necessary, corrective appliances (usually glasses) for employees who habitually use display screen equipment (DSE), for example computer screens, as part of their work. If an employee does not use DSE as part of their work, the employer does not have to pay for an eyesight test or for the employee's corrective lenses.
