reaganry Hello, thank you for the wholesome desciption. I have not tried it yet, as the specialist I am seeing mentioned that the exercies need to be crafted and adjusted in relation to my specific problem only (convergence excess, hidden esothropia, accomodation insufficiency). I have the glasses on the way in two weeks, I will test them for a month or two and then he will see how he needs to craft those exercises.
Hopefully then, this problem might be resolved, or lessed to enough degree that I can use any modern tech for work-amount of time.
I have to stress again - if you or any of you here have 20/20 eyesight, good ophtalmology results etc., it means NOTHING. Eyesight and VISION are two different things. You need to find an optometrist that can find possible hidden issuses with your eyes. A good article for clarification is here - http://www.children-special-needs.org/vision_therapy/esophoria_reading.html
Why the new displays cause this issue to surface and give headaches? I dont know, nor do I know if this will be the final solution. It is possible that the new tech triggers this issue more than the old one. My current theory that the specialist finds interesting is that with flickering displays, the need to reaccomodate and keep eyes fixed on letters while reading is higher (remember PWM and the blurry fonts and words example from tftcentral?). Therefore if one lacks in this department, PWM, flicker and who knows what other issue will sent his vision into overload.
The issue I have is of about 5-10% prevalence in society, which would also go with the estimated numbers we often see on PWM sensitivity and on the intel forum eyestrain.
He also has a person under treatment who has the same issue as me, but instead of migraines he gets very bad vertigo. The reaction of each person might be very individual.
He said that with new tech and VR, more and more people will probably start having these issues and find their way into his office.
