Visual Computer Stress
What are VDU and Visual Computer Stress Tests?
Many people who use computers complain of eye strain. Looking at computer monitors for a long time can strain your eyes or can make any other problems you are having with your eyes seem more noticeable.
Should I get an VDU test?
The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 stipulate that employees using Visual Display Units (VDUs or computer monitors) should be provided with an eye examination, funded by their employer, when requested.
When you have your test, let the optometrist know you use computers often.
