Proper monitor placement will benefit you tremendously by helping to avoid headaches caused by the strain on your eyes and neck. To find the correct monitor height, gaze forward with a neutral position of the head. Relax your eyes. The middle of your monitor should line up with your line of sight, so that your eyes are at the same height as the top of the monitor. Avoid having your head bent forward or backward, as this is what causes your eyes and neck to strain. If your monitor is not at the right ergonomic height, office supply stores stock many tools that allow you to adjust the height of your monitor.
