My eyes were fine for years (36 to be exact). I had an old setup for a while which I kept upgrading but kept the same old monitors for at least 7 years. It ended up with a gtx 1080 and 9th gen intel processor until I decided it couldn't hold out any longer and had to upgrade. So I changed everything, including the monitors into a brand new setup:
13th gen i5-13600K
32GB of Tridentz 3600 DDR4 RAM
windows 10 pro edition 22H2
I started with some mild discomforts until I had real bad strain, to the point I even had more light sensitivity than usual, even turning down the brightness, altering contrast etc all the settings I could think of did not change this. I tried 3 diff monitors (as I didn't know what was wrong) all with similar results:
MSI Optix G241 (IPS)
Samsung Odyssey G3 (VA)
Gigabyte G24F2 (IPS)
I even went to the doctor to have my eyes checked but it would seem my eyes are healthy.
I don't know a lot about PWM/Dithering or anything like that but searching for the solution to my problem I stumbled upon this forum and figured I would give it a shot. Is there a way I can diagnose whats the root cause behind my discomfort?
I am growing a bit desperate because I used my pc for everything (both work and content creation) and now the strain is so bad I can't really bare to sit down for too long of a session unless I want my eyes to hurt bad. Thanks everyone
