Computer monitor placement

Did you know …. that computer monitor placement is a misunderstood area of ergonomic workstation configuration?

Did you know …. that Visual Accommodation, used for focusing, changes the shape of the lens of the viewer’s eye for different viewing distances? For most people, reading is easiest when looking down, rather than when looking ahead or up.

Did you know …. that Visual Convergence is the physical rotation of the eyes inward, toward the nose, so that both eyes focus the image at the same location on their retinas? As in reading, most people find it easier to view an object placed below eye level rather than above.

That is why it is recommended to position the computer monitor display area from 0° to 60° below the viewer’s eye level.
