Best screen for saving my the eyes?
Does any one know any good monitor or laptop screens that are good for the eyes? I am a student and software developer as well. For my eyes this means I have to spend almost 80% of my day in front of a screen.
My main problem is stability of vision. I got blurry vision some years back because of playing games on Ethernet that gave me my present spectacles. The condition has been deteriorating. And now working for long long hours at the screen, I feel my vision getting less stable and further deteriorating.
I know taking regular breaks and rubbing the eyes with the palm helps. Is there any other information you guys can give me? w.r.t screen or exercises. Appreciate your help.
With your computer monitor, I would suggest you use a lcd monitor. Lcd monitors apparently reduce the glare of the screen, hence making it friendlier to the eyes.
What’s going on with me? Can anyone please diagnose all of this?
I’m a 17 year old male. I try to live a very healthy lifestyle. I exercise, I eat well and in good portions, I sleep about as much as anyone else my age does, and I live a pretty happy stress free life. But recently, probably ever since I turned 17 back in May, I’ve been experiencing this very annoying mental issue that has stumped me and doctors since I started noticing it. I’ve also been experiencing many different kinds of other health issues along with it.
The head issue is very difficult for me to explain to people… But everything just seems to not seem real anymore, like it’s no longer my life or something. It all just seems like a big dream. I’m not performing very well cognitively, every time I try to analyze a problem or question in school, it feels like something is stopping me from figuring it out to my full ability. Recent memories, seem like dreams I had long ago. While talking to people, I sometimes say things that are completely ridiculous and stupid out of nowhere, and I don’t even know why I would say those things.
I went to see a psychiatrist/psychologist not really sure what they were called, I was just hooked up with them through my family doctor when I told him about the problems I’m having, which he also put me on a large waiting list for an MRI and CT scan. The head doctor told me that it was most likely because of all of the activities I involve myself in, stretching my brain in all different directions. I told her about this fantasy book that I am writing, that I have spent months on creating the mythology behind it all, also about my guitar playing, piano playing, my singing, I have been in several bands and jam with my friends a lot, about how often I play video games, how I can speak French like 50% fluently, and am starting to become fluent in German. She told me that all of these things, including school, were making me feel this way because I am stretching my mind in many different directions that overwork it and put a lot of pressure on it. So I stopped with the games as much for about a month, other than Call of Duty recently, I stopped writing my book, am trying to get more sleep, but none of this is making me feel better.
I am also very concerned about the head problem, because just recently (which I am going to the clinic tomorrow to get this checked out.) My right pupil has been about 2/3 dilated than my left pupil, and always stays this way. My eyes have been giving me many different feelings; dryness, soreness all around, lots of veins. Which brings me to another problem. My sight has gradually been getting worse for the past few months. I used to have perfect vision, but now everything that is far or even mid length away from me is blurry. Digital clocks, text on TVs, all blurry with halos around them. It just seems to be getting gradually worse. I have a eye doctor appointment for two weeks from now, so I will get the report on that. But I am just worried that I have some sort of serious brain problem that ties both of these problems together. Like a tumor, or an aneurysm. I’m really scared. I’m afraid to even sleep, because I worry that the aneurysm will go off or whatever happens, and I’ll die or go into a seizure and have serious brain damage for the rest of my life (I don’t know much about aneurysms). I’m just scared…
Other problems include serious back problems, my spine is bent sideways and I have to see the chiropractor every two weeks, I recently seemed to have developed lactose intolerance which was confirmed by a blood test, I get strange headaches a lot, I am very badly flat footed, and I’ve had to go to the doctor’s for a number of random infections, cankers, or any other simple thing, but this all just seems to be happening way too often.
Thank you so much for reading all of this, if you did. I’m just really scared and can’t sleep right now, but can’t do anything else about it at the moment.
None of this! used to be a problem about a year ago or so. None of it. This all has just been happening within that time line.
I also do not do drugs, or drink.
I’m not trying to be rude… But do you do drugs? Heavy drug use can permanently damage your brain in this way. If your answer is yes, then I’d say that’s what is causing these problems (minus the back and foot problems). If your answer is no, then I wish you the best of luck in finding the answer to your problems.
I am half blind and I have a question.?
Two years ago I was driving my car down the road and I was on the stop signal waiting for the green light. In that few minutes of waiting I started to stretch my neck leaning forward and sideward and then turning my face to the left and to the right. Normally when I am turning my face to the left and right I have this habit that I will give a little push with a help of my fingers on my chin and I normally apply a little force by pushing sideways and this way I can hear cracking sound at the back of my neck that gives me a little feeling of relief. But I am doing this action not because of I am feeling fatigue or tired but I feel it has become my habit of stretching my neck and sometimes I am stretching and cracking my fingers as well.
On January 4, 2007 something has really happened different after stretching my neck and this is the time when I felt my vision turned into like a scrambled TV Channel it looks like a horizontal lines that is moving up and down so fast. Then I tried to close my eyes for about 30 seconds then when I opened my eyes the scrambling vision was gone. I thought I can continue to drive so I stepped on the gas pedal and the car started running slowly but I was feeling of so much discomfort and worried about what is going on. After about 50 meters I am approaching a corner when my brother who was sitting next to me grabbed the stirring wheel and turned it to the left and in that, I was surprised and I break the car abruptly realizing that something is in front of us that I can not see. When I turned my whole face to my right side I saw that there was a car parked on the side of the road and I could have hit it if my brother wasn’t there. This is the point where I came to realize that I lost my peripheral vision. I also lost my balance but I can still walk, I am feeling drowsiness and vomited few times during the time when I was admitted in the hospital. I was in the hospital for about a week and I have been monitored and tests were also conducted such as Blood full profile, CBC, Absolute neutrofil count, CT scan
Vision field analysis, ECG, Carotid duplex scan. All the test have shown normal with some which is little above high level and this is the cholesterol level. The findings from the doctors show that I had a mild stroke which I am still doubtful to believe and so I am seeking for other opinion.
After two years my vision is still the same, but I don’t feel too much of drowsiness anymore which is a good improvement, I am doing exercise regularly and taking multi vitamins more on B1, B6 and B12, Aspirin is also required as blood thinner.
I need your help what is the best test to find out the actual problem? Can MRI test find the exact location of nerve which is affected? And what is the cure and prevention for this problem? I really appreciate your help and thank you in advance..
I have to agree with your doctors. I would like to reserve judgement as i haven’t seen your scans of course, but the symptoms you describe are pretty convincing for a small stroke affecting the occipital area of the brain, which deals with vision. A CT scan will often display evidence of a stroke, especially 24 hours or more after the event. MRI is an excellent modality for imaging the brain, but may not give any information not already gleaned from the CT. However if your CT was normal and the symptoms have persisted, it may be worth an MRI.
It is unlikely that you will recover the lost vision. If, as seems most likely, it was a stroke, the area of the brain has died and will not regenerate. Having had one stroke, you are at increased risk of further strokes, so no cigarettes, low fat diet, exercise, continue on aspirin, and get regular check ups with your doctor.
