And the doctor continued his advice: “Put your computer screen directly in front of you. The top edge of the screen should be at the same level as your line of sight. And the distance from the eye to the screen should be about 50-60 cm. If you are using a laptop computer or tablet computer with a screen with a diagonal of 10-12 inches, the distance should be the same as the distance from the elbow to the thumb or an average of 40-45 cm.

He noted that in recent years, much attention has been paid not to the standard illumination level, but to the spectral composition of the light.

He said: “Our vision has evolved under the natural spectrum of white light, which is formed after sunlight passes through the atmosphere. Thus, the most comfortable light sources are closest in their spectrum to the luminous flux of the natural spectrum.
