First they had to answer a symptomsquestionnaire called CISS, then they underwent a refraction followed by a fullaccommodative examination including amplitude of accommodation, fused crosscylinder, relative accommodation and accommodative facility. The results of theaccommodative tests were compared to normal values for each test to diagnose theparticipants with accommodative dysfunction.Of the 30 participants, 11 had symptoms related to much nearwork from the CISSquestionnaire. However, only 3 participants had both symptoms and at least two abnormaltest results which gave a result of 10% with accommodative dysfunction where all 3 hadaccommodative insufficiens.The result of 10% with accommodative dysfunction is lower than what previous studieshave shown in both university students and the general population.
