Employee instructions for ordering prescription safety eyewear
- Review the Authorization Form for pricing and nationwide vendors.
- Mention discount number 3403208 at your local LensCrafters, Pearle Vision or Target Optical. The form is not required but can be shown to ensure clarity with the vendor. There are a series of options that are available for you to choose from. The discount will be applied at the time of order.
- You will need a valid eyewear prescription to order safety prescription eyewear (within 1 year). The eye exams are the responsibility of the employee. The doctor of your choice may provide your exam. If you use the UK EyeMed benefit, consult the providers list.
- If you are required to wear safety eyewear to perform tasks as work, work with your supervisor to complete or update your PPE Hazard Assessment Form. Retain a copy for your records. Submit the form to Occupational Health and Safety at OHS@uky.edu. or via fax at 859-257-8787.
