To position your computer monitor at the proper angle (about even with or slightly below your gaze as you look straight ahead), you may need a monitor stand to lift the monitor higher on your work surface. Stands are available in a range of shapes and sizes from suppliers of ergonomic office furniture. Remember to choose a stand that is sturdy enough for the size and weight of your monitor.
