Eye to monitor – the ideal distance

Your computer monitor should be straight in front of you ideally at a distance of more than 25 inches from your eyes.


Font color selection

Preferably work with fonts of darker shades on light background & vice-versa.

Monitor Location

The ideal viewing area of the monitor is 6 inches, below the horizontal eye level

Anti-glare screen

Attach an anti-glare screen in front of the monitor, which will decrease the amount of light reflected from the screen.

Document holder

Use a screen mounted document holder, positioned between keyboard & monitor screen almost at the same distance & height as that of the monitor.

Light effect

Use suspended lights from ceiling & windows with shades, blinds or curtains. Avoid light hitting directly on eyes.

Sitting posture

Use chairs with armrests which are able to provide, support while typing, the position of head slightly titled downwards & height of the chair adjusted appropriately so that the feet rest flat on the floor.

A.C. distance

Avoid sitting at a location with the direct blow of air on eyes from a blower or an A.C. or for a long period in a room with low humidity.
