Does a LCD monitor effects your eyes?
December 12, 2006 7:14am CST
I stay in front of the monitor for a longer period and I am afraid that it may effect my eyes as monitor is CRT so I ask my friend and he told me to buy a LCD monitor as the LCD monitor does not effect the eyes. So what should I do shall I go for a LCD monitor or continue with my current monitor. Please comment.........................

Yes LCDs do have a negative effect on your eyes but the strain isn't as much as a CRT does. If you do go to LCD, from what I currently understand about them, in terms of image programs and games the LCDs aren't as good as a CRT so if this bothers you, you can buy a screen for you monitor to help your eyes relieve some of that strain till the LCDs or whatever new monitor perfects this problem.

well Wasim, I hope you have not taken his advice in a hurry. LCD or no LCD, a screen of monitor or TV is apt to harm your eyes if you stay longer in front of it. The same was my problem a fortnight ago, so I bought a wireless keyboard and infrared mouse and I sit at a distance now from monitor screen and It has helped me a lot. I reckon you use Windows XP, so you can use its magnifying feature if you wanna read some congested script.
