Liquid crystal display (LCD) screens enable the consumer to view images clearly with detail. These screens, however, can be difficult to view when exposed to direct lighting. To enable the viewer to see the LCD screen with ease, the glare on the screen must be reduced. Once the LCD glare has been lessened or eliminated, the viewer will be able to see the image clearer and enjoy what is being seen.

  1. 1

    Place the antiglare filter film over the screen. This film, which is created with a tinted coating, is used to reduce the glare that appears when light hits the screen. Users will need to position the film to match every corner of the screen to enable every area of it to be covered.

  2. 2

    Adjust the brightness and contrast of the screen once the filter has been placed. LCD monitor glare can be reduced by pressing the brightness and contrast buttons on the side or bottom of the monitor. Users reducing the glare on LCD televisions can select "Menu" or "Setup" on the remote control, then "Picture," and adjust the brightness and contrast sliders to darken the screen.

  3. 3

    Reposition the screen if a slight glare still appears on it. Turn the LCD screen away from the direct light to prevent the glare from occurring. Screens that still appear to have glare after this is done should be moved to a different area of the room to eliminate the problem.

  4. 4

    Remove any lamps that may be near the LCD screen to avoid direct light from exposing it. LCD monitors and televisions that are mounted on a wall may not be so easy to move as those that are standing. To reduce even more glare after the antiglare filter has been placed, nearby lamps should be moved to a different area of the room to eliminate the glare all together.
