    hi

    which monitor is least bothersome to the eyes? which make/brand? any specific model?
    something designed to be less hurtful to the eyes

    can a projector be used as an alternative to a monitor, for home use only?
    i imagine that would be less stressful for the eyes

    i have tried computer glasses and noticed some slight improvement, but it's still not satisfactory..

    thanking you in advance

    Hi :)

    I don't have the answer, but one without a glossy screen for sure.

    Have you tried tweaking your current monitor in the settings menu for brightness etc..?

    Yes it can, but you must have a quite huge wall Afaik.

    One of my neighbours does it and when I walk by outside their window I can see what they are doing :p

    I still think the old Sony Trinitron CRT monitors are easiest on the eyes. 5 years ago I had the 17" Sony Trinitron (Dell branded). I bought 3 used for $10 each. All I can say is reading text off one is like reading a book. Makes reading text on a regular monitor like looking at a TV.

    I can't disagree. They claimed when the LCD monitors came out they would be easier on the eyes but I am finding that untrue, at least for me. I am finding the Gunnar Optiks computer glasses an indispensable item for my daily routine. :cool:
