Abstract Three cases of open-angle glaucoma related to VDT work were observed in those who have a disposition to a glaucoma. These symptoms developed even under satisfactory working conditions and despite regular therapy. The complaints were generally relieved when the subjects were released from VDT work. It is suggested that VDT work might induce glaucoma in those who have a predisposition to it.
