    This study examines the current magnitude of the treatment task, the view of the situation from those professionals responding to the challenge and the tools and procedures now employed to address the needs of computer patients.

    Questionnaires were mailed to 7,182 randomly selected members of the American Optometric Association, using a list of 21,546 names.
