Workplace Vision Testing

SureHire technicians test workers to ensure their vision meets basic standards. Having an accurate picture of the state of your workforce's vision prevents individuals from being placed in jobs where issues could occur. 

Different Test Types

SureHire's technicians will employ a variety of tests and procedures to examine the health of the employee or candidate's eyes and the quality of vision, which typically include:

  • Distance Acuity
  • Near Vision Acuity
  • Horizontal Field of Vision
  • Contrast Sensitivity
  • Ishihara Colour Vision Test

Understanding the Results

SureHire will provide a normal or abnormal result to the employer. For all abnormal results, companies may request that SureHire requests Optometrist clearance, or alternatively state that optometrist clearance is recommended and allow the employer to determine if this is required for their position.

Special PPE may be required for some employees depending on their results.




In some jobs, not being able to see properly may put your employees at risk of injury. Some job sites may also involve hazards that could damage eyesight. By completing an eye exam as part of your pre-employment testing, SureHire can help you to record a baseline of the health of your employee's eyes. This information can be compared against the results of periodic check-ups to detect any changes that may have developed. Early detection of any eye problems can be key in protecting against further damage.

Legal Implications

It is the employer's responsibility to protect the health of its employees and to inform them of any hazards they may be exposed to on the job site. Ensuring your employees can see properly can help protect them, and their coworkers, from potential accidents or injuries. Monitoring changes in your employee's eyesight can also mitigate further visual deterioration from occurring.

It is also the employer's responsibility to provide adequate personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect their eyes from damage. It is essential to educate your workforce on the importance of proper eye covering when completing dangerous tasks.
