Joseph Dispensing Opticians Malta DSE / VDU ASSESMENTS

  1. DSE are devices that have an alphanumeric or graphic display screen and includes display screens, laptops, touch screens and other similar devices.

    Why are DSE assessments necessary?

    - Employees will be more productive if their vision is checked on a regular basis.

    - Working regularly with the computer, strains your eyes.

    - When a person is using the computer for long hours, this can lead to tired eyes, dryness, redness and feeling of eyestrains.

    - DSE assessments will confirm the state of an employee’s eyesight and what needs to be done.


    What happens during a DSE assessment?

    - The company provides a reasonable sized room.

    Our resident Optometrist Joseph Grech takes roughly 10 minutes to carry out an eye a DSE assessment for each employee covering:

    - Compatibility for working with VDU.

    - Muscle balance.

    - Colour vision.

    - Binocular balancing.

    - Stereopsis

    - Ergonomic issues

    Finally the Optometrist sends a full report to the company.
