Vision and the Computerized Office

Digital Generation: Vision and the Computerized Office

When people rely on a Video Display Terminal (VDT) screen to do the majority of their work, for extended periods of their workday, vision symptoms often result. Optometrists and ergonomists use the term Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) to describe these symptoms, which occur in 75 to 90 percent of computer workers. CVS symptoms may include eyestrain, headaches, blurred vision, dry and irritated eyes, neck and/or back aches, and light sensitivity.

Vision experts agree that less-than-ideal workplace conditions and screen technology can exacerbate these problems, and that ergonomic interventions must be part of the solution. Suggestions for addressing these conditions give organizations practical ways to improve their workers' visual health and allow people to work to their full potential.
