 Verdana is the Best Font for Eyes

A research funded by computer giant Microsoft has revealed that Verdana is the best font for users to read text even as small a size as 10 without any discomfort.

However the study, conducted by Vision Ergonomics Research Laboratory, suggests that a number of different conditions could affect your eyesight with the level of your computer screen, brightness and contrast being a few of the most important indications.


On his visit to India for the inauguration of Computer Vision Therapy clinic in Bangalore, lead researcher Dr Jim Sheedy warned that ignoring discomfort when in front of a computer could lead to a number of health problems including Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS).

"If the text size is three times lesser than your threshold size, you would struggle to read the font. In turn, you would lean forward to read clearly, which would then affect your body due to uncomfortable posture", he added.
