Eye Spy; The importance of eye dominance in workspace setup.

When setting up your office desk space for good ergonomics, it is important to consider your dominant eye. Your dominant eye is the one that provides the brain with the most accurate image when both eyes are open. Finding your dominant eye is crucial for achieving proper posture and reducing strain on your eyes and neck.

Here's how you can determine your dominant eye:

1. Extend both arms in front of you and create a small triangle by overlapping your thumbs and index fingers.

2. Choose a distant object to focus on, such as a doorknob or a picture on the wall.

3. With both eyes open, center the object within the triangle.

4. Close one eye and then the other. Whichever eye keeps the object centered within the triangle is your dominant eye.

Once you have determined your dominant eye, position your computer monitor slightly to the side of that eye. If you have multiple monitors- the second screen should be placed on your dominant-eye side.

This will help reduce the strain on your neck and eyes while working for long periods at your desk. Additionally, adjust the height of your monitor so your eye level rests at or above the top 1/3 of the screen to prevent eye strain and neck pain.

By considering your dominant eye when setting up your office desk space, you can improve your overall posture and reduce the risk of discomfort and eye strain. This small adjustment can make a big difference in your work environment and overall comfort.
