If you’re constantly on the computer, and your table or computer desk is not high enough, you may have experienced some sort of neck strain from looking down at the monitor. A solution to this is to invest a few dollars in a computer monitor riser. A monitor riser can help reduce eye and neck strain by raising your computer monitor to eye level without the hassle of having to raise the height of your desk. A computer monitor riser works great with laptops as well.

Another advantage of a riser is that it gives you extra storage space instantly. The space below the monitor can be used for storing paper, pens or other office supplies.
If you suffer from being visually impaired, yet still need to use your computer for work or entertainment, you know how frustrating it can be when you land on a site and the text is as small as some legal fine print that nobody reads. Thankfully, there are computer monitor magnifiers especially designed for those who are visually impaired. Most are easily installed with little or no tools needed and can increase text and graphic content from 2x to 4x or more depending on the magnifier.

If you find it hard seeing all the small print on your computer monitor, there are a couple of ways of correcting this. One is to buy a computer monitor magnifier that simply hangs over your flat screen monitor, and like a magnifying glass, enlarges what you see on your screen up to 2X the original size. There is also software you can buy that will enable you to magnify what you see on your monitor screen up to 4X the original size. And if you don’t want to pay anything, then Windows operating system also allows for the magnification of text through it’s Handicap section.

Magnifying glass for computer monitors come in handy if you have trouble seeing and reading text on your computer screen. An alternative to a magnifying glass is to change the resolution of your monitor, but you may find it unsatisfactory since you will see only a fraction of what you would normally see on the screen, meaning lots of scrolling up and down.

Monitor screen privacy filters work by narrowing the viewing angle of your computer monitor. As long as you are in front of the monitor, you will have no problem seeing it clearly. But someone looking at it from another angle will see a dark screen. Monitor screen privacy filters are often used on laptops, since we bring them to very public places. But in certain cases, privacy is still important in the work area. Make sure you select the correct size filter to fit your screen.
