I have posted about this before a couple of years ago. And the thread went wild.....SO many people having trouble with various types of displays. I wanted to get back on the track for my particular display which is a 24" LCD -- ATI RADEON HD 2600 PRO 256MB GRAPHICS. A couple of years ago, I was only noticing eye strain after using it for a prolonged period of time. And if I didn't stop, then that eye strain could develop into a headache.


I have tried taking the brightness all the way down which helps somewhat. I try changing my chair position to make sure I am looking down towards the display and not up. I look away as often as possible to stop the focus on the display. It all helps.


BUT a couple of years have passed and I still am experiencing the same things....only it happens after 5 minutes of usage. And now I almost always get a headache, my eyes feel dry and almost hurt. My neck gets stiff -- perhaps from the expected strain I know will occur. And since a few months, I also notice a feeling of nausea as well -- like motion sickness. GOOD GRIEF is all I can say.


I love my iMac...... but have backed away from using it as I would like. And use my iPad most of the time now. It does not seem to cause me such problems. I know one of these days it will be time for a new mac as this one is nearly 5 years old. And I cannot say that I am keen at all to buy another iMac. Curious about all of you out there and what you are experiencing and could recommend to help alleviate the problems.


THANKS TO ALL!!!!!!!!!!
