Title Objective evaluation of visual fatigue in VDU workers
Bibliographic information Sep. 1994, Vol.44, No.4, p.201-204. Illus. 19 ref.
Abstract Accommodation and convergence tests were carried out on 16 VDU workers and 13 controls before work at the beginning of the week and again four days later at the end of the working day. VDU workers showed a significant decrease in both accommodation and convergence range compared with controls; workers with high values of these variables at first examination showed a greater decrease. It is suggested that accommodation and convergence measurements can be used to evaluate visual fatigue objectively in VDU workers.
