Título VDUs - Glare and eyestrain
Información bibliográfica Feb. 1984, Vol.2, No.2, p.4-5. Illus. 1 ref.
Resumen A discussion of eyestrain due to continuous VDU use. According to one survey, 75% of word processor operators suffer from eyestrain and 55% from headaches. The main reason is constant adjustment of the eyes to different lighting levels: 50-100lx of the VDU screen, 150-200lx of printed text and 400-500lx of office lighting. The usual green colour of VDU text also contributes to the strain, as does glare. Suggested remedies include lower lighting levels for offices with VDUs, the use of yellow colour in VDU text and the use of anti-glare filters.
