Invitation: Vision Screenings

Posted on October 18, 2016


The UP Corporate Wellness Programme, presented in partnership with Bestmed Medical Scheme, has been continuing its annual screenings. 

The purpose of these screenings is the early detection of health risks. To date we have conducted hearing and PSA screening and testing during 2016. Please note that only Bestmed members qualify for free screenings.

The third Health and Wellness screening will focus on vision and comprise a basic eye test. Anyone requiring a comprehensive eye test will be referred to an optometrist who can provide an exact prescription for spectacles or contact lenses, if required. Spectacles and contact lenses will be paid for by the member’s available optometry benefit.


Date: 24 to 28 October 2016

Time: 08:30−15:30

Venue:  EWP@UP, Entrance 9, corner of Roper and Prospect Streets, Hatfield Campus (opposite the Mirage aircraft)


The screening takes about five minutes and will be done by appointment only. To make an appointment and/or request further information, please contact the UP Wellness Coordinator, Nakitha Lottering, via email at [email protected]. Please note that all enquiries should be directed to her.

Join us and start making health and wellness a way of life!
