    Hi, I have very bad eye strain from screens, and just recently found that my eyes are very sensitive to color dithering. Based on my research i found that i need a true 8 bit monitor with 8 bit output and flicker free. I think this monitors don't have dithering. What monitor models do you recommend to me? Is there a better specification monitor for eye strain? Thanks

    GRAPHICS: Dithering

    Dithering is used to randomize quantization error, preventing large-scale patterns such as color banding in images.
    I think you would do better with a display capable of a bit depth greater than 8-bit so color banding is less likely or visible.
    However, 8-bit displays are not as expensive as higher bit depth displays.

    So what is your spending budget?
