It’s no secret that staring at a computer screen all day can be tough on your eyes. If you don’t position your monitor correctly, you could be causing yourself unnecessary eye strain. Here’s how to position your monitor for optimal viewing.
The first thing you need to do is adjust the height of your monitor. The top of the screen should be at or slightly below eye level. If you have to look up or down to see the screen, you’re going to end up with a neckache. You can use a monitor stand to raise or lower the screen, or you can adjust the height of your chair.
Next, you need to adjust the distance between your eyes and the screen. The ideal distance is about an arm’s length. If you’re too close to the screen, your eyes will have to work harder to focus. If you’re too far away, you’ll end up straining your neck to see.
Finally, you need to make sure the screen is tilted correctly. The top of the screen should be tilted away from you slightly, about 10-20 degrees. This will help reduce glare and make it easier to see the screen.
By following these simple tips, you can help reduce eye strain and make your workday a little bit easier on your eyes.
