Occular Safety and Cautionary Tale for Animation Artists.
From wise Sue Bielenberg:
Based on my experience as a graphic designer at a medical forms plant in 1988, I can honestly say that NOBODY tests the safety of technology before subjecting artists to it. I got blepheritis from the Xenotron 2000’s CRT screen long before computers were standards in art departments. My ophthalmologist simply snarled, “If you file a workers comp claim, don’t involve me.” He had had a LOT of computer artists coming in asking for help. The new white screens were supposed to solve everything. I say that even if you stare at a daisy all day, you will suffer an ill effect. But start at a glowing daisy, and you will reallly suffer.
Beware of the glowing daisy….
