Example text

We must be able to respond quickly to the changing needs of society. HFE is therefore at the forefront of technological development. Ergonomics will continue to evolve and professional ergonomists must extend their knowledge to deal with a rapidly changing scenario. I believe that this will require increasing interaction with other disciplines to solve problems. Most problems in this world are of an interdisciplinary nature. In the design of complex systems it is necessary to apply many design criteria simultaneously.

This can happen because of two different phenomena. Either the eyeball Vision and illumination design 45 is too long, or the refractive power of the cornea and the lens is too strong. The cure is to wear concave or negative lenses. Hyperopia, or far-sightedness, occurs when the images are projected behind the retina. This may happen because the eyeballs are too short, or the refractive powers of the cornea and lens are too weak. Astigmatism may occur because of irregularities in the curvature of the cornea.

In this process, the photopigments are decomposed. Intense light will decompose the photopigments rapidly and completely, thus reducing the sensitivity of the eyes so that it becomes difficult to see in dim light. The photopigments are then regenerated during dark adaptation, such as when a person walks into a dark environment and needs more photopigments in order to see. 5. A guide to human factors and ergonomics 46 The figure illustrates the reduction of the light threshold as a function of time.
