I spent 8 to 10 hours a day programming on my 13.3" laptop and developed symptoms like red eyes, blurred vision, dry eyes, pain and irritation. To understand the cause of problem I visited a eye specialist and he diagnosed CVS. Now he suggested some exercises, medication, right posture, correct chair height etc. in addition he advice having a bigger Computer display (for bigger font size.)
Buying a bigger screen was on my card for sometime and doctor's advice made it a immediate priority. So I started googling trying to understand what should I consider before buying a monitor.
I could only zero down on the size (20") and LED.
I am looking for suggestions from fellow programmers who spend considerable time in front of their screens what factors like resolution, pixel density, panel technology, display colors and so forth they have taken into consideration before making their choices.
- I am not looking for advice on CVS.
- I am looking for answers focused on best display technology (computer monitor) for programmers (people having prolonged exposure to display screen)
