How far away should I place the monitor from my eyes?


Many people spend their days sitting in front of a computer, whether at work, at home, studying, gaming, streaming, taking online courses, or in their free time. But how to sit at it properly?

Good computer positioning is the key to avoiding subsequent headaches, neck and back pain. If you too spend a lot of time on the computer, read the following article to find out how to position your monitor correctly


Rules to follow

In addition to the correct height and angle of the monitor, it is advisable to think about the distance from the eyes. If you use an external screen, it should be placed at least 50 cm away from the eyes.

To avoid eye pain, it is also a good idea to focus your eyes on an object at least 6 metres away every 20 minutes or so, or to take a long look at the green or the sky in the distance. There are also glasses with holes to train your eyes to focus.

The ideal option when working on a laptop are ergonomic stands, with which you can adjust the correct position of the monitor. Desks are often lower than you need them to be so you don’t hurt your back. Therefore, if your monitor cannot be placed at the desired height, it is best to place your laptop on a stand. MISURA ERGO has a variety of different types on offer depending on purpose, price, and composition

Ergonomic stand design for back, spine and eye health

As already mentioned, to avoid back, muscle and eye problems when working over a laptop or computer screen for long periods of time, it is ideal to get a suitable chair, and an ergonomic stand to avoid round backs, and an awkward viewing angle. As can be seen in the picture on the right

Ideal are the sliding lightweight folding stands, of which we have several in the MISURA range. You can take them with you everywhere.

Working at the computer requires ergonomic stands

In recent decades, there has been a massive shift from manual work to sedentary work in offices behind a computer. However, in the long term this leads to a one-sided strain on the human body in the back, neck and neck, muscle stiffness and deterioration of vision due to blue light. The immediate consequence can be reduced performance or even long-term incapacity of employees. An ergonomically designed screen workplace can effectively prevent such undesirable phenomena and at the same time ensure higher employee motivation.

Adjustable sliding stands
