    I've seen this video about ipad radiation being even higher than cellphone:

    Same thing here, the ipad causes me severe eye strain and headache. The same happened to me with the iphone as well.

    Apple should fix this. I hear a lot of people complaining, i am not sure anymore that only a small minority faces such issues.

    Well, it's on the Internet so it's got to be true!

    Do look at distant objects to rest your eyes every 15-30min

    I think I figured out what the problem is, at least for me. I believe I'm getting some kind of "simulator" or motion sickness folks get who play a lot of 3D games. The inner ear and the eyes are not in concert so think I've ingested something poisonous, thereby making my brain think I'm hallucinating. I think it's being caused by the way the apps magnify and shrink, as well as the speed of the scroll. That's also probably why I don't get sick when I'm on my laptop (macbook) as these effects are not there, and also why I don't feel sick when I just watch a movie on the ipad as it's just one stable source of motion. That basically means engineers need to offer an alternative so that those of us affected can touch the buttons without them having the magnifying/minimizing effect as well as the fast and then slow to stop scrolling, which makes it so nauseous for those of us affected. I still stand by my earlier suggestion about making an ipad for academics.

    Hiya, if you only get sick when you use the touchscreen, it's probably the electricity generated in your jerves travelling to your brain. The digitiser works not by touch, but by distance. It emits a pulsating radio signal that your body then absorbs, triggering the touch detection. You can trigger it without actually touching the glass. It's strong enough to show up on any AM radio, just put the antenna near the screen before and after you touch it. Your fingertips and brain are connected, so the drone of it is sufficient to produce headache and discomfort.

    Well, mock as much as you like... It only takes 5 minutes of reading to verify that's how the technology works. It's not magic, it's capacitive coupling and virtual ground. You absorb the radio energy, it detects a touch. And it seems extra responsive because the Multi-Touch mode actualy switches on 1-3mm before you hit the glass.

     

    All easily-provable facts.

    and?

    I´m from Sweden and i bought a Ipad for about a month ago. But i can´t use it because i get the same problems as many others. After about 15min it feels like i´m going to puke and my head gets dizzy + eye strain. I´m almost sure that it has something to do with the scrolling/animation + glossy screen.

    I bought a matte screen protector and then i could use it about 40 minutes before I got sick.

    I know that many have problems of led monitors and that's because they often use the pwm (pulse width modulation) to dim the screen.

    But I do not think ipad uses pwm when one lowers the light on it.

    Have tried to pull a pen back and forth on a white background.

    But I can not see any strobe effect that can be seen on most led monitors.

    I hope Apple is listening and doing something about the problem.

    If you could get the opportunity to turn off animations and gain control of scrolling, i think the problem would be solved.

  • Glossglo Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    This might be a bit of a pain, but if you can't return the ipad, at least for now, try to look away or close your eyes when you touch a button, or are scrolling. I've heard this helps and some people can get "used" to it and be able to work with the ipad. That said, I don't think humans should have to change their natural body instincts for a machine, but you can see if that might help. I agree with you that if Apple allows for users to control scrolling and turn off animation/magnifying function, the problem would be solved.

  • Spock66 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Thanks, I'll try your advice and see if it helps. I've never had these kinds of problems with a computer screen. When i got these problems with the ipad, i began to suspect that i had vision problems. I was and examined the eyes for about a week ago, but i had perfect vision.

  • Glossglo Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I think we have the exact same problem, which means many others probably suffer from the same. I also do not have any problems on my macbook whatsoever. I also read that for those suffering from motion sickness, it is possible to beat it by gradually letting your body get accustomed so maybe try to use the ipad a little bit every day and then increase after a few days or so. I'm planning to do the same. If this doesn't work, then I'm going to have to return the device. Too expensive to have lying around! Let me know if you see any improvements, and I'll do the same. Good luck!
