Question about monotype fonts for IDE

Hi all!
What monospace fonts do you use in IDE like Eclipse or Spyder4?
Which monospace fonts do you think are the most comfortable for our the eyes?
I work with resolution 1,920 x 1,200 in 24" monitor with standard Monospace 10 pt XFCE 4.12 , but last time eyes begin to tire.

I am using SF Mono on my terminal and vi (or vim editor).

SF Mono can be downloaded from the Fonts for Apple Platforms page.

@alvinctk, thank you very much for yours advice.
In near time I will be experiments with this fonts.
Besides some people recommend Consolas, Hacker.
How define optimal for me fonts - write about it.

I looked at a lot of fonts, include and Mono SF and In the end I chose on next mono fonts:

  • Eclipse - the best for my opinion JetBrain Mono Regular 10 (its are free for download)
  • Spyder - I want install to Spyder JetBrain Mono Regular too, but it impossible. Spyder didn’t import all TTF fons from system, Mono SF import only Italian cursive. For Spyder I chose Hack 10.
    Besides I set color temperature for 4500K and set brightens 160 kd - and eyes
    ceased tire and watery.
