Abstract
Modern work activities often require an intense and prolonged visual effort on near objects. At the same time, occupational asthenopia caused by accommodation and binocularity overloading is a very common complaint in these working populations. Moreover, blinking rate seems to be a sensitive parameter with 'indoor-near-work operators', possibly increased by both chemical and physical environmental agents and decreased by cognitive effort. In this paper, a new piece of electronic equipment used to measure the observation distance and blinking rate is described.
