Help me screen my next monitor

I am going to buy a new computer soon. As a migraineur, I’m concerned about the kind of display I get.

I have read that LCD screens have no flicker rate and are good for migraine sufferers. I’ve also read that LCD screens are backlit with fluorescent lights and are terrible for migraine sufferers. I have found varying statements about TFT monitors. I found this post
about monitors, but it’s six years old and technology has, presumably, moved on. (I’m presently using an old CRT with both the brightness and contrast turned way down.)
So knowing that MMMV, give me your data, anec- and otherwise, about the best screen choice for me. Thanks!
