Nowadays, computers have been used widely in every kind of occupation. One of the health problems of the computer using is eyestrain or asthenopia. Some experts have tried to correlate the exposure of Video Display Terminal (VDT) with the occurrence of asthenopia but until present there is no database about the prevalence of asthenopia within the call centre workers in Indonesia. Previous study among female computer operators found they more easily become asthenopic. The complain of asthenopia itself is subjective and varies in every individual and therefore one measureable objective value is needed to determine the occurrence of the asthenopia case itself. The design of the study was using ?pre and post test?, it involved 72 subjects in ?X?-call centre and using photostress test to measure objectively the occurrence of asthenopia by measuring the increasing of Macular Recovery Time (MRT) before and after working. The average shift of MRT was about 2.98 - 3.57 second within 68.1 % of the subjects, which were evaluated after 4-hour working time with their VDT. The distance between the eyes to VDT and the satisfaction with the working shift arrangement had significant correlation with the occurrence of asthenopia. There was significant correlation between subjective complaints such as pain within the area around the eyes, headache and dry eyes due to increasing of the MRT.
