Re: ideal location of monitor screen?
There have been studies to show the potential detrimental effects of
"burying the monitor screen in the desktop". Computer interface,
although performed in an office environment is very unlike reading and
writing, due in part to maintaining static rather than dynamic postures
for extended periods.
I would suggest that the source of your problem is not the monitor
location, but the design of the eyeglasses that you wear.
Some states have a mandate that employers provide and pay for appropriate
eyeglass correction for employees who require it. There are special
eyeglasses designed specifically for computer work, and I would suggest
that you speak with both your employer and optometrist before taking a
chainsaw to your desk !!
