VDT screen reflections and accommodation response
Reflections in computer screens are imaged behind the screen and therefore potentially create a conflicting cue to appropriate accommodation response to the plane of screen. We investigated the effect of screen reflections on accommodation response by producing reflections (1.33 D accommodation demand) surrounding and overlying the fixation point (2 D accommodation demand) in the screen. We have found little evidence that reflections in visual display terminal screens can influence the accuracy of the users' accommodation responses under normal binocular viewing conditions. The accuracy of the accommodation response was not significantly influenced by the position of the reflections, the presence of surrounding text (peripheral cues), or the subjects' dark focus level. The variability of accommodation response did not significantly change under the various test conditions. However, accommodation errors were apparent to a small degree (< 0.25 D) under some monocular viewing conditions in the presence of screen reflections.
