DSE glasses

What are DSE glasses?

DSE glasses are specially developed to take care of your eyes when working at a computer. They are therefore also called computer glasses or workplace glasses.

With DSE glasses, you can look at a computer screen without your eyes having to compensate. The glasses are designed in a different way to your prescription glasses. They take factors such as your working distance from the screen into account.

When do you need DSE glasses?

When you reach the age of 40–45, you, like most people, may need DSE glasses. The reason for this is that the eye’s ability to focus deteriorates with age. If you already wear glasses, you may find that they are no longer enough. Without thinking about it, you may have started to lift your chin and neck – or find yourself leaning in towards the screen to focus.

So for several hours a day, you may be adopting a poor sitting posture, which can cause problems such as:  

  • Tired eyes after a day’s work
  • Frequent headaches
  • Neck and back pain
  • Inability to concentrate


If you need DSE glasses, we recommend that you have an eye test.

There are three types of DSE glasses

You should choose glasses that are compatible with your work tasks and working day. You can, for example, get glasses that allow you to see the screen and keyboard clearly, at the same time as being able to see at a distance of up to four metres. A lot of people find it a relief not to have to constantly put on and take off their glasses in different work situations.

Who pays?

If an eye test shows that an employee needs DSE glasses and their prescription glasses are unsuitable for DSE work, the company must pay for them.

What are the rules for DSE glasses?

Dansk ErhvervsOptik complies with the rules and guidelines of the Danish Working Environment Authority and Branchemiljørådet (the Industry Council for the Environment).

Headaches when you’re at work. It is equally important that your workstation is set up to suit you.

Individual DSE glasses

The right DSE glasses for one person are not necessarily the same for another. Opticians today can adapt DSE glasses to match the vision and work functions of the individual.
