    CRT...?
    they emit UV radiation... the stuff that the sun gives out...
    no worries, but it's the cause of skin cancer with some people... esp those who goes abroad...
    it's probably even worse for the (sensitive) eyes...
    CRT monitors only emit a bit of it tho...
    if it's bothering you too much, get a TFT...

    Also: if you are still able to perceive (and consciously manipulate) the Windows GUI, several hours after retiring for the night, then you may want to decrease the 'gamma' setting by around 7000%. This applies similarly if you find yourself able to discern the composition of your desktop wallpaper through an adjoining wall.

    To paraphrase: should your monitor display appear to be visible through brick walls/layers of another, ostensibly opaque, material, then one would prescribe a slight reduction in the 'gamma' setting. Failing that, you may be needing a new pair of retinas.

    That is all.

    A TFT monitor will improve this, since I got my TFT its been a god send, I no longer get head aces and everything is much crisper making it easier to read. You also have the advantage of not having huge bright electron guns staring at your eyes flashing about 75 times a second.

    Surely ostensibly doesn't make sense there?
