- Look at the computer screen with a straight neck
Place the computer / laptop screen in front of you at a comfortable viewing height. Don’t tilt the screen so you have to turn your neck.
If you have a separate screen, you may need to place it on a stack of books or on a cardboard box to raise it to a comfortable viewing position right in front of you.
- Place the screen back to the window
To minimize the possibility of visual eye strain due to glare or partial retinal adaptation, do not work with your back facing the window, because the incoming light will cause glare on your screen.
Better to close the window with a curtain to prevent light reflection. Then put your computer screen back to the window.

- Look at paper documents with a straight neck
Don’t read from an iPad or paper that is placed flat on a table so the head has to keep moving up and down. If you need to go back and forth between a laptop or computer screen and separate reading material, use a vertical document holder or place the iPad in an upright holder.
- Place your keyboard and mouse or touchpad at a comfortable height in front
Make sure you can use the keyboard and mouse with your arms and hands parallel and straight. Make sure your arms are close to your sides when you use the mouse.
