LCD brightness Setting Question

guys, I like to know what are you setting your LCD brightness to? I use the Z finder and set the LCD brightness to the mid position but its too bright for my eyes. I dun trust the metering so I am eye balling the exposure mostly, so I have been working on a mid level brightness. However I think my eyesight is suffering so I am tuning it down but I'm concerned about the accuracy of my exposure.

How are you guys doing it?

I got mine 1 bar to the left of the middle, but you should hook it up to your edit monitor and point your camera to a scene that has shadows and highlights and adjust it until it is as close as possible to your edit monitor.
