Título Excessive accommodation of the eye in desk workers
Información bibliográfica Dec. 1988, Vol.33, No.2, p.169-174. Illus. 7 ref.
Resumen In ophthalmological examinations in printing companies, the subjective symptoms of the eye were significantly greater in subjects who wore over-correcting glasses or who were hyperopic. Of 240 wearers of glasses, 64 (26.7%) displayed a drop in near visual acuity when they wore glasses for desk work, but this was not found for the groups of older workers. One group, the A group, could see an object 40cm away with difficulty, while another group, B, could easily see the object. Subjective symptoms among group A were more frequent than among group B for persons in their 20's, 30's (p<0.05) and 40's (p<0.1). The near visual acuity of group A was significantly lower than that of group B for persons in their 20's and 30's (p<0.05) and their teens (p<0.1).
