level of discomfort symptoms while performing near work
- Accommodation Lag 5D [ Time Frame: 3 week period ]Lag will be measured at different viewing distances and durations using autorefraction. Accommodation error refers to the difference between the distance where the target is located and where the eyes focus. Lag refers error that is under focussed; lead is error that is over focussed. This distance is measured in diopters, or 1/meter.
- Conlon Symptom Survey [ Time Frame: 3 weeks ]Measures visual discomfort symptoms while doing near work. 23 item survey using a 4-point rating scale (never, occasionally, often, almost always). Total raw score reported on a range from 0 to 69 with higher scores indicating more frequent symptoms.
