VisiKey Keyboards Offer a Solution to the Estimated 60 Million Americans Who Suffer From Computer Eye Strain in the Workplace
Article Editor: Christopher Laird Simmons
CHATTANOOGA, TN - September 17, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), a
recognized visual disorder by the American Optometric Association, has emerged as the leading
health problem associated with prolonged computer use. VisiKey, a new Enhanced Visibility Internet keyboard, addresses the keyboard portion of CVS with larger, higher contrast letters. The Enhanced Visibility lettering system (patent
pending) features letters, numbers and symbols that are 430% larger than those on a standard
According to the Federal National
Institute For Occupational Safety and Health, nearly 90% of all users working on a computer
three or more hours per day suffer from some form of vision problem. Adding to the seriousness
of workplace eyestrain are the astonishing one million new cases of CVS each year
According to the Roper Starch Survey, the average American child spends one to three hours per
day on the computer doing homework, chatting online with friends and playing games. The visual
skills used by a child or adolescent during computing (visual acuity, visual fixation and
visual focusing) are less developed than those of an adult. As a result, children and
adolescents are more at risk of developing CVS (www.cvconsulting.com).
These CVS sufferers experience headaches, loss of focus and burning, tired or dry eyes from
looking at both monitors and keyboards.
VisiKey's Enhanced Visibility keyboard includes 15 useful hot keys that enable one
touch access to Internet/multimedia functions. These Internet and media buttons are all
slightly larger making them easier to locate.
The larger, higher contrast lettering increases visibility and lowers eyestrain, providing a
more comfortable computing experience, even in lower light conditions. With the VisiKey
keyboard, computer users can be more productive and alleviate some CVS related symptoms
