Monitors for poor eyesight

My eyesight is not perfect. It's a struggle for me to stare at a small font for long periods. I am considering two options in terms of monitor setup:
- Dell U2715H x 2 monitors - these are 27", running at a resolution of 1920 x 1200
- Dell U2415 x 2 monitors - 24", the same resolution as above.

Do you think I should go with the 27" monitors? If you have any experience in working with either 24" or 27" displays, please share your views.

Instead of 2x 27" monitors you can consider the Dell U3415W 34" curved widescreen monitor that is beautiful for trading. Resolution is 3440 x 1440 and crisp and clear. I changed from 2x 22" Dell monitors.

It really depends on how bad is your eyesight.
24" and 27" in 1920 x 1200 are good with a correct eyesight, with contact lenses or glasses or not.
So maybe a 4K monitor, but larger than 34", 40" or something.

What is the condition you are describing? If you have trouble with eyes getting tired, make sure you set your charts to black and white (black and white candles, white background). This will help with eye strain. If it's too bright, you can try to decrease the brightness of your monitor. I am astonished at how many people choose dark charts and fancy colors for their candles, without knowing how stressful this is for your eyes.

In my opinion it would be better for you 2x27" because of your sight problems. The greater, the better.
