Best place to put light source?

#1DisastersaurusPosted 6/12/2014 9:45:21 PM
So I usually game with my lights off, but I'm finding out that's bad for the eyes. But everywhere I put my lamp there's a slight glare on my monitor.

Is there a place I can put a light source that won't cause glare? It's kind of distracting.
