The body follows the eyes, so it is important to consider what someone looks at while at the computer workstation to determine the optimal location of items.
Some helpful considerations:
- Determine what the person looks at frequently: documents, keyboard, etc...
- Non-touch typists may need monitor and keyboard to be closer together
- Wearing bifocals, trifocals, or progressive lenses may impact the neck position
Looking upward/bending the neck backward can cause significant discomfort
- A lower monitor position or a change to single-vision 'computer glasses' may be needed
