Contemporary monitors using LCD screens are pretty easy on the eyes, unlike the earlier CRT monitors. So if you want a monitor that's easy on your eyes, discard that CRT and get yourself an LCD or LED model.

Reviewgist only shows you LCD and LED monitors and among these, it's best to look for one that has an anti-glare (matte) screen. A matte screen reflects less light back to your eyes and consequently causes less strain on them. Additionally, it also serves to have a brighter screen, since a dull displays too tends to hurt the eyes.
