When setting up your workstation, the most important measurement will be the desired height of your computer desk. Once you have your desk configured properly, you then can adjust the computer desk chair to the height of your workstation. For example, your elbows should be at a 90-degree angle when you place your hands on your desk. If they are not, adjust your chair up or down until your elbows are the right angle. You also want to make sure you are allowing your gaze to easily fall into the middle of the computer screen. You may be unconsciously straining your neck if your gaze falls to high or to low.
Working at a desk top computer over fifty years of age with your general purpose prescription eyeglasses can be challenging on your eyes. The eye’s focusing ability is under a strain to keep the content on the screen clear. Just because you can see the computer screen clearly through the distant portion of your glasses doesn’t mean you are not taxing the eye’s focusing ability to maintain a sharp focus. Also, lifting your chin up to see through the mid portion of your progressive style lenses will have consequences on your neck and back due to poor ergonomics. The reason you are using a bifocal is to see at close reading distance clearly for extended periods of time.
By taking these initial steps, you should be able to alleviate much of the pain or stiffness you may be experiencing. If you are still encountering pain, you may also want to investigate alternatives to the traditional computer desk chair. By placing your body in a different type of posture altogether, you may be able to reduce the strain that comes from sitting in a static position for long periods of time. Popular alternatives are sitting on an exercise ball, or dynamic stool, which forces you to use your abdominal muscles for support and helps reduce muscle fatigue.
