We have often discussed eye strain and its computer related causes. A
column by Jim Seymour in the October 24, 1995 edition of PC Magazine throws a
new light on this subject. This column discusses the resting point of
accommodation (RPA) and how the standard Snellen-card test fails to address
RPA. I suggest you read this column if you are one of the many people who
experience eye strain while working at your monitor.
