The purpose of this research is to show that the stress during the VDT task could be evaluated using the chaotic features for the focal accommodation system and the pupil area. The result of this experiment shows that the fractal dimension for the pupil area can be used to evaluate the stress during the VDT task. Moreover, it is shown that the chaotic property in the fixed target measurement is higher than that in the linear control and step control measurements. However, the first Lyapunov exponent hardly changed over time for all of three accommodation measurements.
