jasonpicard Nope, I live near equator and still have this eye strain problem. it seems the latitude has no connection to this problem. I am curious about what age group are we? Are we in the same group or diverse? I am 40 years old and had been experiencing the changes in screen technology from CRT, to LCD and LED. And the problem arised since the introduction of ultra HD technology. Perhaps my eyes accostumed to low resolution, washed out screen became sensitive to this advanced unnatural sharpness of high definition screen and creates the eye strain. How about you guys?
