					How to install and configure the monitor?

The correct choice of space for your monitor is a very important task. Incorrect location of the
monitor can lead to pain in the neck, shoulders and cause eye fatigue. The recommendations below
will help you find the ideal position for your monitor.

Installation and use.

A. Position the monitor at arm's length.

When you work with your computer monitor should be at arm's length away from you. The location
of the monitor is too close or too far can lead to eye strain. If you have a large monitor (20 inches or
more) - you need to stay away from him. However, the larger the monitor, the more his work permit
and therefore the smaller the size of text on the screen. Therefore, you may need to increase the
font size. This must be done so that you do not have to bend over to the monitor while reading the

Two. Place the monitor in the center.

For most computer monitors best position is to place it directly in front of you. The location of the
monitor is not in the center (ie, left or right of you) can cause pain in the neck, due to poor posture.

Exception: If, because of the use of a computer, you will see on the screen from time to time, it is
acceptable to place it aside. People who in addition to the computer, often use other objects located
on their desktop (tellers, managers, and others) can locate the monitor so that it does not interfere
with their work. A good solution in this situation - the use of the monitor, which is rotated on the

Three. Place the top of the screen at your eye.

The ideal screen height is the height at which your eyes will be on the level of the imaginary line,
located at 5-7 cm below the upper edge of the monitor. This can be achieved in two ways: either
lower the screen, or a chair lift. If your monitor is too low, you'll bend over for him to see the picture
(this can cause pain in the neck). If your monitor is too high, you will tilt your head back, which can
lead to pain in the neck, shoulders, and increases the likelihood of glare from room lighting (which
can lead to headaches).

If you use bifocals or trifocals while working at a computer, may be appropriate to lower the monitor
a few inches lower than recommended to ensure a comfortable viewing through the lowering of
your lens.


If you are using a large monitor (20 inches or more), adjust the monitor so that the upper edge of
the screen was about 7 cm above eye level.

4. Tilt the monitor back slightly.

Tilt the monitor so that the base was a little closer to you than the top. This allows you to see the
entire screen and the image is clearer. Tilt down the monitor is not recommended, except in the
case when it is necessary to reduce the glare from room lighting, or if your monitor is too high and
not adjustable.


Tilt the monitor back too far may cause glare from the glare produced by lighting a room.

Five. Look out your windows.

The windows are a source of glare on the monitor. If you're in a room with windows to treat any
serious reflections (glare) on the monitor, as they can lead to strabismus. The best way to check the
monitor glare - is to turn it off and consider the slightest reflection on it. Also, the location of the
monitor directly in front of a window can create a kind of uncomfortable to view the screen if the
brightness of the light from the window is greater than the brightness of the monitor.

6. Balance the brightness of the monitor and its surroundings.

You need to configure the monitor so that the brightness of its screen was approximately equal to
the brightness around it. The objective is to minimize the difference of brightness on the screen and
around it (making sure that your workplace is sufficiently well lit). Uneven brightness can cause
headaches and eyestrain. You may need to adjust the brightness of the screen during the day, if your
workspace is illuminated by natural light.

7. Reduce the brightness.

The high brightness can cause discomfort, eye strain and headaches. Adjust the monitor so that the
image was too bright (but try to picture it as comfortable for you). If you can not dim the screen,
changing its configuration, consider using a protective screen for the monitor.
Eight. Adjust the font size and text color.

Text size should be approximately 2-3 times the size of the smallest text you can read. Black text on
a white background is best seen for reading.

9. Use a swivel bracket for the monitor.

If, while working with a computer, you often interact with other people, and the location of the
monitor in the recommended position will interfere with your work, consider buying a bracket for
the monitor. Swing arm allows you to save the correct location of the monitor while working with a
computer and can easily turn the monitor on my own while not in use.

Recommendations for the proper operation of the monitor.

A. Follow the rule of "20/20/20."

If you work at a computer long periods of time, take a break every 20 minutes and 20 seconds and
look away for at least 20 feet (~ 6 meters). This will allow your eyes to relax and regain focus - the
best way to relieve eyestrain.

Two. Keep the screen clean.

Dust can be easily assembled on the screen. Periodically wipe the screen the recommended way to
remove accumulated dust and fingerprints, thus providing a clear image on the monitor
