Precaution while using Microscope
Inappropriate lighting conditions
Eye fatigue is minimised in a well designed visual environment. Where possible, avoid high light levels and high contrast in the microscope in comparison to the room surroundings. Minimise glare and reflections in the work area. Glare can be reduced by removing light sources from the visual field. This can be done by re positioning workstations, using blinds or curtains, removing highly reflective surfaces or by using shielding screens. The Health & Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 give further information regarding work with VDU screens.
