The impact of different lenses on visual and musculoskeletal complaints in VDU workers with work-related neck complaints: a randomized controlled trial.

Abstract The impact of wearing lenses on visual and musculoskeletal complaints in VDU workers is currently unknown. The goal of this study was 1) to evaluate the impact of wearing VDU lenses on visual fatigue and self-reported neck pain and disability, compared to progressive lenses, and 2) to measure the effect of both lenses on head inclination and pressure pain thresholds during the performance of a VDU task.

AB  - OBJECTIVES: The impact of wearing lenses on visual and musculoskeletal complaints
      in VDU workers is currently unknown. The goal of this study was 1) to evaluate
      the impact of wearing VDU lenses on visual fatigue and self-reported neck pain
      and disability, compared to progressive lenses, and 2) to measure the effect of
      both lenses on head inclination and pressure pain thresholds during the
      performance of a VDU task. METHODS: Thirty-five eligible subjects were randomly
      assigned to wear progressive VDU lenses (VDU group) (n = 18) or progressive
      lenses (P group) (n = 17). They were enquired about visual complaints (VFQ),
      self-perceived pain (NRS) and disability (NDI) at baseline (with old lenses), and
      1 week, 3 months and 6 months after wearing their new lenses. In addition,
      Forward Head Angle (FHA) and PPTs were assessed during and after a VDU task
      before and 6 months after wearing the new lenses. A short questionnaire
      concerning the satisfaction about the study lenses was completed at the end of
      the study. RESULTS: In both groups, visual fatigue and neck pain was decreased at
      3 and 6 months follow up, compared to baseline. All PPTs were higher during the
      second VDU task, independent of the type of lenses. The VDU group reported a
      significantly higher suitability of the lenses for VDU work. CONCLUSION: It can
      be concluded that there is little difference in effect of the different lenses on
      visual and musculoskeletal comfort. Lenses should be adjusted to the
      task-specific needs and habits of the participant.
