Hi all! For the past few months, I have been suffering from a problem where I feel that my monitor is a bit too bright, especially when I am reading/writing on a white background such as this. I recently got an eye test done from specsavers with the following results - Right eye - SPH - +0.50 CYL - -0.50 Axis - 85.0 Left eye - SPH - +0.50 CYL - -0.50 Axis - 75.0 BVD - 12.00 They recommended glasses along with an anti-glare coating. I haven't got them yet but I was wondering how could I further reduce eye strain from my monitor as it seriously affecting my productivity as I read and write a lot on my computer. I blink a lot and cannot look at the screen for too long. The following are the settings on my monitor. It is a Hanns-G HL-231 connected to a MSI 8800gt through a VGA port- Resolution - 1920 x 1080(native) Refresh Rate - 60Hz Colour Dept - 32bit Brightness/Contrast - Brightness - 32 Contrast - 57 X-contrast - Off Preset Mode - PC Colour Setting - Nature Image setting - Aspect Ratio - Full H-Position - 50 V-Position - 50 Clock - 50 Phase - 86 Sharpness - 0 All colour settings in the Nvidia Control Panel are all set to 'application control' apart from the following enhancements, which are at default - Digital Vibrance - 50% Hue -0 degrees My room has 2 windows, one right above me, on the ceiling and one at the back wall to the right and behind the monitor. It doesnt help that much if I cover them or not, the monitor still feels too bright. I hope this information is useful and will help you to help me. Thanks!
