Paper Abstract

This work presents an experimental study of the appearance of redness on the surface of the eye on PC users due to the exposition to low frequency electromagnetic fields LF, VLF and ELF that VDTs with TRC monitors radiate, based on the measurement of the level of pigmentation and temperature. The total of the samples was analyzed using digital processing of images extracting the component of red color of the sclera. We demonstrated that under the same ergonomics and operating conditions, TRC monitors cause a higher heating and greater pigmentation in the users eyes as compared to LCD screens, due to the higher low frequency radiation.
