Paper Abstract

A brief review is made of the major factors that are likely to cause eye discomfort from clerical work in traditional office environments. A procedure is proposed whereby cases of complaint may be systematically investigated. Methods are suggested for making a fairly quick evaluation of the task characteristics and the lighting conditions and it is suggested that measurements of the thermal characteristics of the environment also be carried out. In order to complete the investigation, it is necessary to obtain a person's subjective responses to the environment, using a suitably prepared questionairre, and for an eye examination to be performed by an ophthalmic optician.
