That is flat out not true.

Furthermore, if your monitor hurts your eyes, it's due to refresh rate or bad lighting in the room. And setting the brightness or contrast too low will strain your eyes because you will lose clarity and be squinting at the display.

For maximum clarity, proper color rendering and the minimal eye strain, you calibrate your monitor. By definition, that is what calibration is. This is ridiculously bad "advice."
