Title Problems caused by the continuous use of visual display units.
Bibliographic information 1980, Vol.12, No.1, p.26-36. Ilus. 29 ref.
Abstract The problems and appropriate remedial measures described are: eye strain (ocular, visual, systemic, and behavioural symptoms); operator fatigue; visual factors, postural factors, environmental factors (heat, noise); work design factors, personal factors. Visual factors (image quality, effects of illumination, glare, reflections, adaptation) are dealt with in some detail. Most of these problems can be overcome by ergonomic design.
