So, as the title so clearly explains, when it comes to computer related injures, many fail to see the damage an incorrectly angled monitor can affect you.
Eyestrain is the most common complaint from people who work long hours at a computer. It can cause dry eyes, headaches blurred.
How to avoid these kinds of pains is pretty easy though.
1. Location, location, location
How you position your monitor can greatly affect how it affects you. Make sure it’s at a good distance form you, about 45 to 75 centimeters away, directly in front of you and at a little lower then eye level. This leaves your neck in a neutral position and means your eyes don’t have to strain to see the screen clearly.
2. Too much light?
Turning down the light can decrease how harsh the light is on your eyes. It’s also a good idea to have the room lighting at a similar level to the screen. Try closing your blinds and dimming the light, don’t use fluorescent lights either as they can hurt your eyes. This will mean the eye won’t get so over powered from excessive light.
3. All that glare
If you can’t cut out the extra unnecessary light, an anti-glare screen will do that for you. Not to mention it also adds a layer of privacy. It’ll help cut down on harsh you can’t actually control.
Avoid eye strain is simple enough, though the lower lighting will take some getting used to. When you do though, you will no longer feel the dull ache behind your eyes and can live a full and happy computer life.
