Oh, and make sure it's not a CRT. CRTs emit "dangerous" radiation.

Heh, cool. I'm getting irradiated every time I watch an episode of a series.

Well, technically, I'm getting irradiated all the time. Solar radiation baby!

I'm not sure if the quotes are supposed to make it sarcastic but if it isn't: FUD. This was just bullshit from the LCD manufactures trying to give us a reason to switch to their displays with inferior image quality. CRTs do not emit any radiation detectable above the background radiation. Apparently now the backlights (CCFL) and the low energy CFLs we use for indoor lighting are emitting enough UV radiation to cause some people with skin conditions to break out in lesions much like radiation poisoning. Of course more long term testing is needed to see just how much of an issue if any it is.

My LCDs all have their brightness down very low. I aim for 100-120cd/m2 in my calibrations. Generally most displays are around 300, 400, 500cd/m2 at 100 out of the box these days. Ugh. I have no idea how anyone can even be in the same room with that.

I've never had a problem before and nothing in my usage has really changed over the last 10 years. I've made an appointment but I'm reasonably sure I know the cause(s). Increased thermals of hardware components pushing more hot air into my room from the 24/7 box has completely annihilated the equilibrium between my room and the rest of the house. It is always much hotter and drier air even with the heat shut off to my room. This wasn't really an issue in the summer or spring with the windows open but now with the radiators kicking on in the house the air is just too much for my eyes. Not to mention the winter air is considered pretty bad for drying out the eyes in Canada. I guess this is the reason because whenever the heat is on in the car I'd get dried out eyes very fast. :|
