The increasing use of cell phones and laptops in today’s modern society has a negative impact on health; one such impact is on informatics students, who struggle with the use of cell phones and computers in their daily activities. This study aimed to determine the relationship between radiation exposure to cell phones and laptops with subjective complaints in the form of sleep quality, headache, dry eye syndrome (DES) and concentration disorders. The research is analytic observational and cross-sectional approaches. The study used simple random sampling to select 112 respondents, all of which were informatics students of Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS). The Pearson correlation test results were obtained from cell phone and laptop radiation exposure with sleep quality (p <0.05; r = 0.192), headache (p <0.05; r = 0.510), dry eye syndrome (p <0.05; r = 0.1950) and disturbances concentration (p <0.05; r = 0.406).

This study aimed to determine the relationship between radiation exposure to cell phones and laptops with subjective complaints in the form of sleep quality, headache, dry eye syndrome (DES) and concentration disorders. The research is analytic observational and cross-sectional approaches. The study used simple random sampling to select 112 respondents, all of which were informatics students of Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS). The Pearson correlation test results were obtained from cell phone and laptop radiation exposure with sleep quality (p <0.05; r = 0.192), headache (p <0.05; r = 0.510), dry eye syndrome (p <0.05; r = 0.1950) and disturbances concentration (p <0.05; r = 0.406).
