Abstract: This paper describes subtle and complex interdependency of human functions of peripheral and central visual nervous systems, such as antagonistic phenomena between peripheral and central visual nervous system and significant phenomena between ocular accommodation and perceived health. To neglect subtle interdependence in the bio-psycho-social aspects of human function results in a maladaptive condition which leads to the decrease of perceived health. Empirical evidence obtained was described, such as: an occupational decrease of ocular accommodation of inspectors; hourly variations of ocular accommodation during 8-hr working day; antagnostic relationhip between the central and the peripheral visual functions significant relationship between visual fatigue and perceived heath.
