    Default Eye Strain

    I'm starting to see black dots when I look at bright objects. My eye doctor said it was do to eye strain. I read up on this and learn you should increase your monitor to at least 75 hertz to avoid this... that's if your monitor supports it. Mine doesn't.

    My old compact LCD would do 75 hertz and I always ran it at 75.

    I just bought this samsung LCD a few months ago! crap, I don't want my eye balls to be burn out.

    This spec is something you don't normally see advertise.. unless its one of those expensive 120 hertz models.

    I tried a few force refresh rate app but they didn't work.

    The only solution it seems to be is buy another monitor..

    lcd monitors don't flicker. therefore the refresh rate has no effect on your eyes. crt flickering does impact your eyes severely and yeah, at least 75hz should be set up.

    Black dots are called floaters and they do not have anything to do with your LCD you need to find a new eye doctor. I have had a couple of them in my right eye since I was 8 yrs old and I'm 56 I did not get them from playing with a computer 48 years ago lol

    What about viewing a monitor in the dark? I always turn the lights off while i'm watching videos and playing games.

    This maybe the cause since everyone is ruling out my LCD.. I will leave the lights on and see what happens.


    “Eyestrain can occur when the eyes are fixed on an object for a long period of time, there is poor lighting, or there is glare,” explains John Bullough, Ph.D., lighting scientist at the LRC and lead researcher on the television study. “One scenario believed to cause eyestrain is watching television in a dark room. In this case, visual discomfort is caused by the large difference in luminance between the television screen and the room’s dark background.”

    I ended up selling it on craigslist today. It couldn't be helped.

    I started to get another symptom, headaches.. perhaps it was the wrong time to get a 23" monitor for gaming. Dragon age is ruling my life right now... until the BF:BC2 patch anyways. I use to play on a 50" screen.

    I'm researching these LED projectors out now. They're around $500 and can display a 100" image. They're not HD though.. but they do have a higher resolution than EDTVs.

    And no, I'm not talking about Pico projectors lol

    I always wanted a projector but bulb cost kept me away.. worrying about bulb life or one just exploding(like bulbs do..) on me is something I didn't want.

    These LED have a 30,000 hour life rating.. that's like over 20 years with 10 hour a per day viewing. You can leave them on and don't have to worry about bulbs.

    I also have 100% control of ambient light in my room. I can make it pitch dark during the day.

    These three caught my eye.. They are highly rated.

    The human eye can only see approximately 30FPS. IMO... I think your guy is whacked.

    I think it is simply diue to looking at a monitor for a long period.......(clown porn)
