On a more or less biannual basis, for thirteen years, The Norwegian Association of Optometry has performed consumer surveys in Norway. Typically, approximately 1300 randomly selected Norwegians, at the age of 15 years and above, have constituted the study participants. Professional telephone interviewers contacted them all. Among the questions addressed were also the questions listed below: • Do you have special prescribed computer glasses for use at work, fully or partly paid by the employer? • Do you feel a need of a pair of glasses for use at the computer (computer glasses)? • Have there been measurements at your work place for your special work glasses? (In particular, we have measurements of visual work distances, lighting and reflexes in mind.) • Are the costs of an eye examination partly or fully covered by your employer?
