Harmful Secrets of​ Computer Monitors
If you​ use PCs,​ you​ are staring at​ that PC screen a​ lot . ​
Therefore you​ need a​ correct screen setup as​ soon as​ possible,​ or​ your eyes,​ neck shoulders and​ the​ rest of​ your body will suffer . ​

The trend in​ computer screens is​ to​ replace the​ box type computer monitor with a​ flat screen ,​ saving weight space and​ power . ​

However all the​ following tips apply equally to​ both types . ​

Suitable positioning of​ your monitor screen will cut back on​ unwanted exertion,​ and​ bad positioning,​ plus other possible health problems like exhaustion,​ eyestrain and​ related disorders like itching and​ styes . ​

Eyestrain,​ neck and​ back pain can be considerably reduced by proper selection of​ the​ monitor or​ flat screen . ​
the​ screen should be positioned in​ proper relation to​ other components like the​ keyboard,​ desk,​ and​ chair . ​

While using the​ computer monitor,​ ensure the​ following
The screen is​ in​ front of​ you​ and​ at​ least 20 inches 45 centimetres away . ​

The screen should not be more than 40 inches 100 centimetres away . ​

Ideal computer screen size is​ between 15 to​ 20 inches,​ about 37 to​ 50 centimetres measured diagonally . ​
if​ the​ screen is​ very small,​ you’ll find it​ difficult to​ read the​ characters . ​
if​ the​ screen is​ very large,​ you​ may require too much space . ​

The ideal position is​ to​ have the​ screen directly in​ front of​ you . ​
But,​ if​ that is​ not possible,​ the​ maximum ’offcentering’ recommended is​ 35 degrees to​ the​ left or​ right of​ you . ​

not very much!
The top line of​ the​ computer monitor screen should be at​ or​ below your eye level . ​
if​ necessary raise your chair a​ little,​ so that your line of​ sight is​ also raised . ​
However if​ you​ do this,​ make sure your feet still get get good support,​ and​ your thighs can move freely under the​ desk . ​

Computer monitor should not be placed above or​ on​ top of​ other equipment like a​ CPU central processing unit or​ a​ surge protector . ​
the​ screen would be then higher than your eyes . ​
That might well increase strain on​ your eyes,​ neck,​ and​ back . ​

If your work is​ chiefly involved with printed matter,​ it​ is​ better to​ place the​ computer monitor a​ little to​ the​ side,​ with the​ documents on​ a​ stand just in​ front of​ you . ​
There should not be too much distance between the​ monitor and​ the​ printed matter . ​

The screen should be placed at​ right angles to​ windows,​ so avoiding irritating reflections . ​

The ideal screen position is​ to​ have it​ directly in​ front of​ you . ​

If your work is​ chiefly involved with printed matter,​ it​ is​ better to​ place the​ computer monitor a​ little to​ the​ side,​ with the​ documents on​ a​ stand just in​ front of​ you . ​
There should not be too much distance between the​ screen and​ any printed matter you​ are working on​ . ​

Do not tilt computer monitors sharply either toward or​ away from yourself,​ as​ the​ objects on​ the​ screen may appear distorted making them hard to​ view . ​
Also,​ if​ the​ monitor is​ tilted back,​ there are chances of​ the​ overhead lights creating glare on​ the​ monitor,​ and​ a​ tilted or​ propped monitor may become unstable and​ fall over . ​
you​ can tilt the​ computer monitor screen slightly somewhere between 10 to​ 20 degrees so that it​ is​ perpendicular to​ your line of​ sight . ​
Always ensure that the​ angle and​ tilt of​ the​ screen can be adjusted without much effort . ​

For anything other than minor screen adjustment,​ it​ is​ is​ better to​ have the​ computer monitor sitting on​ a​ a riser/swivel stand,​ available from any good computer accessory store,​ on​ or​ offline . ​
to​ avoid glare,​ make use of​ a​ glare screen,​ available again from any suitable source of​ computer accessories . ​

Get your screen setup right and​ youve taken a​ big step towards healthy computing in​ 2018 and​ beyond!
