A good quality monitor always help of course, no doubt about that. In general, though, the most damaging to the eyes in the long run is not so much
from looking at the electrons itself, it's rather the proximity of a flat surface for excessive periods of time. For example, reading books all day
or watching paintings on the wall would have the same damaging effect.
To preserve your eyesight make sure you take a short break every hours if possible to go peek outdoor in natural sun light, look at complex 3D objects
such as trees to keep your eyes "calibrated" so to speak, watch moving cars, focus your eyes on clouds, etc... then continue working on your
computer in a well lit room, because watching a monitor in the dark could burn your retina over time.
