Glare reduction - do you use one on your monitor?

    Ok, this new widescreen (16.9?) monitor is pretty cool, except it's killing my eyes... I used to have this screen that I put over my old monitor to dim the color and reduce glare, but it won't fit on this one...

    Do you use a glare reduction screen on your monitor? if so, where'd ya get it?



    ps. if you name a website where they sell them, and I don't say "thanks" - it's because I"m already blind from the glare...

    I got a 19" and a 28", but I don't use a glare reduction thing on either of them, but I am sure you need one, because you live in 'Sunny Florida'.

    I have a 17" monitor with a built in glare reduction. you just push a button and it reduces the glare, and yes I use it.

    I don't think there is any need of extra eye-protection with new monitors. They are already build with that in mind. You just need to adjust your monitor's settings. :)

    I use an LCD and it is really not troubling my eyes in spite of spending long hours in front of it....

    I have LCD monitors for both my Laptop and PC so working infront of them for long hours does not seem to hurt my eyes but when I was on CRT monitors I used to feel pain while I was working for long hours.

    Right now I am on my 17" CRT monitor but I don't think it offends my eyes. Anti glare filters are available in case you need one. Never allow lights to be reflected from your monitor screen and place the source of lighting accordingly.

    Ive never used glare reduction, im hardcore, lol, although i do regularly get the feeling of pins and needles in my eye balls as the eye strain regularly causes the vessels to rupture. :)

    I pretty much have got used to permanent eyestrain.

    Ironically, reading a book for an hour can severely affect my eyes more than the daily time i spend on my computer.

    Don't think I need an anti-glare screen for my 17" CRT monitor.
    I just push down the brightness/contrast a couple of points whenever I feel it's straining my eyes.
