Resumen This report of a US National Research Council panel on the impact of video viewing on the vision of workers summarises the latest information from ergonomics, illuminating engineering and industrial and organisational psychology and provides detailed advice on optimal lighting, display characteristics, and job and workstation design to improve the comfort, performance and job satisfaction of VDT users. No scientifically valid evidence was found that occupational use of VDTs is associated with increased risk of ocular diseases, abnormalities or cataracts or causes anatomical or physiological damage to the visual system. Radiation emitted by VDTs was below existing occupational radiation exposure standards.
