Title The effects of noise on vision efficiency
Bibliographic information 1990, Vol.3, No.2, p.163-169. Illus. 11 ref.
Abstract The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between intensity, noise duration and non-auditory effect represented by changes both in visual acuity and the near point of accommodation. Changes in vision efficiency determined by a black and white chess board were monitored during and after 1h exposures to 4 levels of noise: 90dB(A), 93dB(A), 96dB(A) and 99dB(A) and 2h exposure to 96dB(A). Results indicated that vision impairment can be attributed to a complex relationship between the intensity and the duration of exposure to noise.
