Abstract

The aim of this research was to evaluate the Ergovision Screener (ES) accuracy e validity by a confrontation with the conventional ophthalmic check (OC), for the medical evaluation of job fitness. A population of 100 VDU operators was considered. Each subject underwent randomly both the ES and the ophthalmic check visit. Several test carried out by the Ergovision Screener were not consistent with the conventional ophthalmic check. In a number of cases, high false positive ratio have been found, which could lead to unnecessary further examinations. For all these reasons we believe that the ES is not an appropriate instrument for the medical evaluation of job fitness.
