Quick Background Info:
I`m new to this forum and I too suffer from eye strain when using Apple devices. My story started in 2015 when I bought a 13 inch Macbook Pro with the famous Retina Display. At that time I had a desktop pc with a TN 720p (not even full HD) monitor. I could spend days on that TN monitor without any issues while staying only 10 minutes on my Retina Macbook gaved me some nasty headaches, blurry vision and migraines.
I have read pretty much every topic on this matter here as well as Apple forums or any other thread which I could find so as most people said the issue is related to "dithering" or "LED backlighting" used in Apple displays. Changing resolution, color profiles etc does not seem to help many people so until we have a fix (which I doubt will come soon) we need to rely on other workarounds.
From the number of people which have an eye sensitivity to this (myself included) it seems though that changing color profile from P3 to "sRGB" was beneficial in reducing (but not fully eliminating) eye strain. A second "good option" reported by people was using an external display (some reported that the issue went away completely by using an external display)
Anyway, back to the main point of this thread:
Ive been looking at different screen protectors and I was wondering if some of you tried "Ocushield". They have blue-light anti-glare privacy ones for Macbooks -they do charge a premium for these ` but many people swear by them. They also claim to be the only "medical approved" manufacturer and the team behind it are certified optometrists.
What caught my interest is the fact that their screen protectors does not give you that "yellow" screen that all protectors give while preserving the highest image quality % (so that we can enjoy the Retina screen)
So, has anybody tried their protectors for the macbooks? Personally, if this will fix the eye strain I will be more than happy to pay whatever they are charging.
So if somebody could test these (apparently great) screen protectors can you please post here so that more of us can use our laptops without "crying"?
P.S I have seen a video of a fellow eye strain sufferer which used Ocushield for his iphone and he says (check comments section) that the issue is now fixed thanks to that screen protector. Here is the video link if you want to have a look for yourself:
P.P.S I just got the 2020 M1 Macbook Pro (13 inch) as a gift and I would really really really want to keep this baby this time but so far it sits in it`s box because of my eye strain fear.
