With reference to the "Regulations on organisation, management and employee participation, section 14-4", HiOA wishes to adapt the work for employees who regularly work in front of computer screens. A part of this adaption process consists in acquiring glasses to be used when working in front of the computer screen to reduce and avoid strain.
You will receive a full reimbursement for the expenses associated with the eye examination. The cost of the lenses required to create a good work situation is also entirely covered. In addition, you will receive a reimbursement for the frame with up to NOK 800,. You must yourself pay for expenses beyond this amount.
The need for computer glasses must be officially documented in each case by an ophthalmologist or a publicly approved optician (member of the Norwegian Opticians Association) if the employee wishes to receive a reimbursement of the expenses.
The cost of the eye examination and the computer glasses is charged to the unit you belong to.
Before purchasing the computer glasses, you must clarify with your immediate manager with HR responsibility. The application form «arbeidsbriller til bruk ved dataskjerm» (word-file, only in Norwegian) must then be filled out.
