Gorfball Thank you for the kind words and the information.
That’s interesting about the flickering, I know fluorescent lights flicker and those are a nightmare for me. One thing I have noticed is that when I’m working on set, the production monitors they have which broadcast a live feed of the actors while they are shooting the scene, seem “different” to me. Although I’m never watching for an extended amount of time, I’m keenly aware that this type of monitor is much easier on my eyes. Thank god, because sometimes my job requires me to watch the monitor. I have looked into production monitors online, and forgive me but I’m not nearly as tech savvy as most people seem to be on this forum, and I’m too shy to ask someone from work. Do you know if those types of monitors (I googled production monitors and found several results), are compatible with Netflix/DVD/pc? I would assume so. I'm also unsure if it’s just not bothering my eyes as much because it's a live recording, rather than something that was previously recorded and edited.
But assuming it’s just the type of monitor and doesn’t matter whether it’s live or recorded, if I bought a production monitor, could I connect that to a PC? I’m thinking the monitors they have must be this flicker free type. If so, then maybe the flickering is my issue too!! It’s just overwhelming for me to try to find the right one, online browsing is difficult and painful for me. Price is a factor, but if I knew it was a screen I could actually look at, I’d be willing to fork over the dough if a more expensive monitor means I could use my computer for more than two minutes or actually watch a movie. Then I would just have to figure out a way to use my phone. Go back to the razor? Abc123.. Ha. As far as shopping, I guess it’s hats and sunglasses unless this miraculously disappears.
I will definitely download the app you are recommending in the meantime, and see if that helps. I have an HP laptop that’s a few years old. I have no idea the technical specifications. I do know that the windows operating system on it sucks.
Healthwise, I am very conscious, and get labs done as often as possible. My vitamin D is good. I have had high B12 for years and more recently my homocysteine & B6 is high. Have no idea why. Tried the proper supplements to lower homocysteine which did nothing. Thought it might be connected to the brain/eye issue as homocysteine is an amino acid which is toxic to the brain.
I also have TMJ issues and in my notebook, one of the theories I had is that this has something to do with the TMJ and my trigeminal nerve possibly being impinged.
Thanks in advance for any answers to these questions. I appreciate it so much. I am excited to see all the different responses and just wanted to add to the end of this post that because of the difficulty with the screen, I’m not able to respond to everybody tonight but will reply to each individual post as soon as I can. 🙂
