Doctor :   2.     To avoid the glare and reflections on the monitor, position the computer at sides of the windows, not against or behind the window lights
Doctor :   3.     Adjust the contrast of the monitor for a comfortable viewing. Monitor should be placed below the eye level.
Doctor :   4.     Adjust the window blinds in your room so that the sunlight is away from the screen and your eyes. The over head lights should be with minimum brightness. The table lamp if any should not cause reflection on the monitor or shine on your eyes. You may attach a glare blocking hood or glare filter
Doctor :   5.     The mouse and the key board should be placed below the elbow level, preferably on an extension board.
6.     The monitor should be kept a little low for easy reading just like in book reading.
7.The bifocal lens users can go in for progressive lens.
