Booklist Review

The act of seeing is a complex process involving not only the whole body but also one's physical surroundings and the psychological stresses of the moment. So maintains the variety of optometry called behavioral, the techniques of which are dealt with quite thoroughly in this little book. More specifically, Godnig and Hacunda focus on human sight and its interaction with computers, which have become indispensable, both in our business and private lives. (Anyone who has spent much time in front of a computer's VDT--video display terminal--soon realizes it can greatly strain the eyes.) While this volume primarily functions as a kind of educational tool for managers, it can also serve as a self-help guide, in particular the exercises designed to help alleviate the stress caused by prolonged VDT use. In all, a useful guide for those who must work with a VDT (which nowadays seems to be almost everybody). Includes references, glossary, information ~sources, and VDT questionnaire. --Jerry Alber
