So, I'm in CS industry and recently bought the LG MN430m-b for about 110usd(10k in Bangladesh). I was using a DELL S2218h from 2019 and it's working fine but I really needed a second monitor.

Anyone from the tech or software industry would understand the importance of multiple monitors. But I recently noticed prolonged exposure to different monitors(LG and DELL) is actually hurting my eyes. So I was thinking about selling both and buying a good colored monitor which wont hurt my eyes. I have set a budget which is 300 USD and would appreciate some advice.

Some of the requirements I think would be good for me:
  1. VESA mount
  2. 24inch atleast
  3. good color and eye soothing
Although this are some things I think would be good for me, I'm open to any and all suggestions you guys have to offer.
N.B: New to thread so apologize for making any mistake

It is possible, it is the room lighting that is contributing to your eye strain. You might look at the ambient lighting and get more back light behind your monitors.

I actually thought of that first. But what I do is start up my emulators in one and the editors in the other monitor. And as the colors doesn't match for the two monitors it get's tough after a few hours of work

OK. Color matching is something that can be corrected. Have you googled "monitor calibration" ? There are some websites with basic monitor calibration steps. After that, you would want to get a hardware monitor calibrator.

I didn't know about that. Is there any tool you can suggest which can calibrate both my monitors to same level of accuracy
