Any rule of thumb for height of monitor?

I think my monitor might be too low. After I'm on for an hour or so, I have trouble raising up my head, and sometimes my neck seems to lock up. When I raise my head to free it up I can hear a very loud crack. :D Then to tip head down to read screen again, neck muscles feel tight. I thought about putting a phone book or something under the monitor, but not sure how much to raise it up. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Maggie

    eye level only ... The level that would be comfortable if/when I wear my brace ... hard or soft ... IMHO .... you should not have to be looking up or down ... just straight on.

    Good Luck and happy necking!

    eye level is the best height for your monitor. You do not want to have to bend your head down to read the monitor nor raise your head up.
