Introduction: A lot of employees working in front of a computer complaining about some
symptoms. Eye and vision problems connected to the prolonged use of a computer are called
Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) or Digital Eye Strain. One of the symptoms of CVS is
neck pain. In comparison, Range of Motion (ROM) is used to determine the ability of joint
movements. Aside from that, it can also be used to maintain flexibility and joint mobility.
Purpose: To explain the association between Computer Vision Syndrome and the reduction
in neck range of Motion in Employees.
Method: The type of this research is analytic observational, and the design of this research is
Cross-Sectional Study. This research was conducted from Tuesday, 16th July 2019, until
Wednesday, 17th July 2019, using CVS-Q and goniometer dy.
Results: We collected 156 respondents that meet the inclusion and exclusion criteria. We
obtain p=0,02, p <0,05 meaning there is an association between Computer Vision Syndrome
and the neck range’s Motion.
Conclusion: To conclude, there is an association between Computer Vision Syndrome and
the neck range’s Motion.
