It’s important to have your computer monitor at the correct viewing distance. If you’re too close, you might strain your eyes. If you’re too far, you might not be able to see the screen properly. So what’s the perfect viewing distance for your monitor?
It depends on the size of your monitor. For a 19-inch monitor, the optimal viewing distance is between 24 and 30 inches. For a 24-inch monitor, the optimal viewing distance is between 30 and 36 inches. And for a 30-inch monitor, the optimal viewing distance is between 36 and 42 inches.
Of course, these are just general guidelines. If you have poor vision, you might need to be closer to the screen. And if you have perfect vision, you might be able to sit a little further away.
If you’re not sure what size monitor you have, just measure the diagonal distance from one corner of the screen to the other. That’s the size of your monitor in inches.
Once you know the size of your monitor, just sit at a comfortable distance and adjust the position of your screen until it’s at the perfect viewing distance for you.
