Keep an eye out for eye fatigue symptoms Computer-related vision symptoms such as eye fatigue have s om common causes that should not be ignored. Visual display Termin als (VDTs) cause symptoms such as eyestrain, visual discomfort, and vi sual fatigue (Murata et al., 1996). Detecting the likely diagnosis and tr eating the cause can result in improving performance of the user and low ering the risk of ocular problems (Anshel, 2005). Children may also ex perience the visual symptoms related to… 

Computer vision syndrome: A review.

The physiological mechanisms that underlie CVS are not completely understood and further research is required to better understand the physiological mechanisms underlying CVS and symptoms associated with the use of hand-held and stereoscopic displays.

Use of visual display units, used for different purposes in institutions, at workplaces and other recreational areas, have risk of developing computer vision syndrome (CVS), one of the emerging public eye health problems in the world.

Interventional Cohort Study for evaluation of Computer Vision Syndrome among Computer Workers

There was a significant decrease in the asthenopic symptoms following intervention but limited results were achieved due to inadequate infrastructure in work place, non-compliance of the subjects, limited time of intervention.

Management of digital eye strain

Digital eye strain, an emerging public health issue, is a condition characterised by visual disturbance and/or ocular discomfort related to the use of digital devices and resulting from a range of

The effects of breaks on digital eye strain, dry eye and binocular vision: Testing the 20-20-20 rule.

Intentions and behaviors to use oral supplements for computer vision syndrome

It is recommended that marketers of oral eye treatments for computer vision syndrome consider as part of their advertising campaign including content about computer vision Syndrome related symptoms.

Ocular symptoms associated with digital device use in contact lens and non-contact lens groups.

Comparison of blinking rate in glasses-wearing and non-glasses-wearing computer vision syndrome patients.

The blinking rate per minute is increased with the increase in usage of computer per hour while those who wear glasses experience increased blinking rate.

The effect of trick intervention 20-20-20 on computer vision syndrome incidence in computer workers

The conclusion in this study was that there was a significant effect of trick intervention 20-20-20 on the incidence of computer vision syndrome in respondents.

Visual impediments to learning

Cognition, learning, and motor planning are dependent upon accurate encoding of stimuli from the environment. If there is an error in, or an impediment to, sensory perception, higher cognitive



[Work efficiency and lighting conditions: an experimental study].

Assessment of working efficiency effects caused by lighting conditions characterized by "according to law" illuminations, yet in presence of high or low luminance ratios in the occupational visual field showed that high luminance ratio conditions show a decrease of the performance, which where not detected with low Luminance ratios conditions.

Vertical Gaze Direction and Postural Adjustment : An Extension of the Heuer Model

The authors provide a consideration of the vergence system and suggest an extension of the original model to explain why preferred vertical gaze angle is downward when fixating proximal targets, which was able to predict oculomotor responses, explain postural adjustments, and provide economically useful data.

Visual Performance at Video Display Terminals—Effects of Screen Color and Illuminant Type

The results suggest that displays and illuminant types that are in common use allow substantially equivalent visual performance.

The relative contributions of the nature of VDT displays, workstation design, work-practices and optometric factors are discussed, drawing from the substantial body of literature which now exists on this subject.

Short-term effects of workstation exercises on musculoskeletal discomfort and postural changes in seated video display unit workers.

Exercises done by video display unit operators while at a workstation resulted in short-term decreases in both musculoskeletal discomfort and postural immobility, suggesting that workstation exercises may be beneficial.

Viewing distance variation and related ophthalmological changes in office activities with and without VDUs.

This experimental study was conducted on 14 volunteer female clerks to measure viewing distance variation and related ophthalmological changes in office activities with (session 1) and without
