Abstract 3 VDU terminals used in intensive data input work in banks were studied. Description of the 3 work stations, of the operators, of the tasks involved and of the recording method for the electrooculographic tracings coupled and synchronised with the video-recorded image of eye movements. More mental and eye strain exists in this kind of intensive terminal work than in others. A better analysis is possible of the ergonomic factors involved and they can lead to a rearrangement of the work stations and of the tasks involved.
