Title Recommendation for glasses for VDU work, viewed critically
Original title Empfehlungen für Bildschirmarbeitsplatzbrillen, kritisch betrachtet [in German]

Abstract Occupational physicians often conclude that spectacles prescribed for working at screens are not satisfactory because the optometric analyses fail to take screen work into account. A protocol was developed for collecting the necessary optometric data and was tested on 44 patients wearing spectacles. Findings show that it was possible to prescribe optimal spectacles on the basis of correct optometric measurements. Other aspects are also discussed.
