VDU Operators

I work all day on a VDU, which lenses should I choose?

Choose lenses with an anti-reflection coating – they will help to reduce glare from your computer screen.

Should I wear my glasses when I use the VDU?

If you wear glasses generally, your eyes will feel more comfortable wearing your glasses on a VDU provided you have the recommended distance vision breaks away from your screen. Inform your Optometrist that you are a VDU operator and they will be able to offer you advice.

How will I know that I need an eye examination if I use a VDU?

You should visit the Optometrist if you suffer from persistent headaches, eyestrain, squinting, blurring of vision, double vision, dry eyes, watery eyes or excessive blinking. You should ensure that you have an eye examination every 2 years – this is particularly important if you are a regular VDU user.
