Progressive Lens Use for Computers
In order to accommodate standard progressive lens use when reading the screen, the top of the monitor should ideally be 5-6” lower than the seated eye height to allow for reading the screen through the reading portion of the lenses. Monitor distance is typically 26” or less from the eyes. This will facilitate neutral head/neck posture and should improve your comfort. Check out our Use of Progressive lenses handout.
