Points de Vue magazine is one of the leading sources of ophthalmic information made available to Ophthalmologists, Opticians, and Optometrists throughout the world.

In the issue 70 / Spring 2014, we address the theme of visual fatigue.

Various symptoms of discomfort are associated with performing visual tasks, especially at near viewing distances that are more and more usual nowadays. Different causes of visual fatigue are described, with their various consequences, and particular attention is brought to accommodation for pre-presbyope patients, to better understand its mechanism and associated visual fatigue symptoms.

This issue is also dealing with all the possible impacts of poor vision, and is introducing for you the newly created Vision Impact Institute, and its challenge to give awareness of the key value of well corrected vision for everyone.

Points de Vue magazine is a bi-annual, international review published in 5 languages:
English / Spanish - French / German - English / Mandarin
It is distributed by our worldwide subsidiaries to Optics professionals.
