Abstract

The purpose of this study is to confirm objectively by an instrumental measurement if there is less eye fatigue in VDT work when using a wood rim covered display than when using a plastic housing display. The subjects were 26 graduate and undergraduate university students. Each subject did the same 60-min VDT activity with both a plastic housing and wood-covered display. Before and after VDT activity, each subject's near-point accommodation distance was measured by a near-point ruler. As a result, it was confirmed that variation rate of the near-point accommodation distance by the VDT work with the wood-covered display was smaller than with the plastic housing display. From sensory tests, progression of subjective symptoms such as eye pain and headache was less with the wood-covered display than with the plastic housing display.
