Paper Abstract

This research is devoted to a problem we do not know enough about--ergophthalmological estimation of ophthalmologist's labor activity. Taking into account the fact that professional activity of ophthalmologists is connected with using different optical devices, the most of which creates high levels of brightness at the retina of investigators, main attention is sparing to this aspect. In a special experiment, 3 young women who are occupied with work in a ophthalmological consulting room, were examined for 9 days. Examination was performed by means of ergophthalmological methods of complex visual system evaluation. Developing visual fatigue, weakness of accommodation and retinal function disorder and also some weakening oculomotor muscles were revealed.
