Title Influence of VDT work on visual function
Bibliographic information Apr. 1983, Vol.19, No.2, p.87-90. Illus. 13 ref.
Abstract Experiments using an infrared optometer showed that VDT work might induce temporary effects in the visual accomodation system. The low frequency component of the small fluctuations of accomodation increased after VDT work. The inhibition of accommodation caused by VDT work was more severe than that caused by conventional hard-copy work, and it was more marked in the case of work with smaller-size characters than in that with large-size characters. The inhibition was more evident in the elderly and middle age groups than in the young age group.
