There's a lot of litereature about this sort of thing out there. Glare
reduction is, essentially, the process of getting bright reflections off
the screen, or adding glare filters to the screen, or both. Reducing
glare is done by turning off or aiming the CRT away from bright lights,
avoiding very light walls and floors, keeping lights from shining directly
on the screen, and reducing the level of light in general.
Add-on glare filters have optical coatings that reduce reflections. They
help a lot, especially when you can't do much about the other things.
Also, if you've got an ancient monitor that's fuzzy, dim, or both, it
can cause you a lot of pain.
I haven't read anything on these topics in a while, but it's probably
easiest to start by looking over, say, the Inmac catalog (order one
at 800-547-5444) and look under the section called "Desktop and
Ergonomic Accessories." That'll give you an idea of what's out there.
