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
