Computer screens should be at eye level? - not necessarily

One of the good results of my routine eye test today is a return to a comfortable working environment

About a year ago, a health and safety expert berated me for having my computer screen below eye level - bad for my posture, apparently

Trustingly, I put the screen on a stand and suffered the up-and-down head motion of non-touch typing and screen checking.

On the basis of advice today, bearing in mind that I have specs with vari-focal lenses, I have removed the stand - and things are soooo much better

I can now type and read the screen without too much effort and hope that I will be less tired at the end of the working day

Moral: the H&S experts do not know everything
