||The surface optical properties of computer peripherals such as screens and keyboards give rise to vision disturbances among users caused by gloss and brilliance; for this reason, regulations concerning the lighting of workplaces involving work on screens and computer equipment include specific provisions on gloss values and reflectances of surfaces visible to users. Based on a literature survey, this report presents the current state of knowledge on the effects of optical properties of the surfaces computer equipment on users. According to some studies, the complex relationship between gloss and reflectance can be quantified. Recommendations concerning certain aspects to be included in future regulations are proposed.
