Is exacally what i was going to say, can anybody here really tell me that they go on the computer everyday with a big CRT and don't wear glasses or have bad eyes?
Supposedly the radiation off them kills your eyes, if your on the comp a lot, i don't really fancy that!
That's just a myth.
I've been using glasses long before I even got into computers. My eye sight is stuck at -1.75 and it's been like that since 2001 and I've been using a 22" Mitsubishi for the past year and a half but have use CRTs since 2001, have not had the need for new prescription. And I'm on it at least 2-3 hours a day, 350 days a year. Wife goes to bed at 9 PM, I go at 11pm-12am.
Need I say that I wear Acuvue 2? The only reason why people feel like their contacts melt in their eyes is because they forget to blink, I've done that where I play a game and forget to blink, suddenly my contact feels sticky, but as soon as I blink it goes away. The protein build-up in your eyes needs to be washed away by the tears, so don't forget to blink.
I just don't see where a CRT will put a lot of strain in your eyes, and image is an image coming from whatever screeen is emitted from.
