    The fatigue phenomenon of grating visual acuity was examined in 36 patients with optic nerve disorders by means of a laser interferometric acuity device. The phenomenon was found in 6 of 36 cases even under a luminance corresponding to the Japanese standards of office illumination. This fact indicated that the patients suffered visual fatigue in their everyday vision. After they were prescribed tinted lenses to eliminate the fatigue, the patients had comfortable sustained vision in their daily work.
