Smart Employee Eye care

As of 1st March 2018, Lancashire Constabulary will be partnering with Smart Employee Eye care (SEE) to provide employees with occupational eyewear aimed at aiding staff who may need prescription glasses for use at work.

Employees looking to obtain a DSE voucher will be required to access the SEE online portal, where the relevant vouchers are provided. You will be asked to provide some basic details such as your name, collar number, department and division before a voucher is generated to you and send via email. The email will include an attachment - this is your unique eye care voucher which must be printed off and presented to an optician on arrival to your appointment. The vouchers can be redeemed at any of our 3,000 affiliated Opticians across the UK. This includes high street branches such as Boots, Vision Express and Optical Express as well as many independent Opticians. Employees will not be able to claim back on expenses for tests carried out elsewhere.

Employees using a DSE voucher will be entitled to an eye examination free of charge and should the Opticain determine that glasses are required specifically the DSE use, you will have two options:

  1. Choose a pair of glasses from the SEE range which would be of no additional cost to you;

    Or

  2. Choose a pair of glasses from the Opticaians range and receive a discount of £25 off the total cost of your purchase.
