"For many people, working in front of a computer monitor means aching eyes, blurred vision and even migraines. Eye and vision problems are fast overtaking sore wrists and hands as one of the most frequently reported health related complaints among the ever-growing nmbers of people who spend time peering at a computer screen. So quickly have computer-related vision issues grown in the past year that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the federal Department of Labor is considering incorporating these issues into the ergonomic guidelines that it is developing.
Surveys cited by the American Optometric Association, an organization of 32,000 optometrists, indicate that 70 to 75 percent of computer workers have eye and vision problems." -- Anne Eisenberg, New York times|
"According to a study conducted by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 95% of CRT operators are bothered by the screen glare and 65% mention specific health problems as a result. Similar studies in other countries have also shown that well over half the people who use CRTs for a significant part of the day complain about eyestrain, headaches, and general fatigue.
Static electricity is another concern. Almost anyone who has worked with computer displays has heard the cracle of static electricity when touching the screen. The static attracts dust which can further hurt visibility and increase eyestrain. In addition, computer manufacturers agree that static should be minimized in an office computer environment. One spark could destroy thousands of dollars worth of equipment." -- Science News
"For a growing number of Americans, blurry vision, headaches, even seeing double go along with their job. Blame the problem on PCs. About 88% of the estimated 66 million people nationwide who work at computers more than 3 hours a day suffer such eyestrain symptoms, reports a '91 study by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. Experienced optometrists warn that eyestrain's pain and irritability can lead to loss of productivity and even missed work days. That's why employers should do what they can to make computer work as easy as possible on employees' eyes." -- Michael Tarsala, Investor's Business Daily
