I have to stare at this thing an awful lot for work, and of course I stare at it recreationally too. But after a few hours a horrible dazed feeling creeps up on me. It's not eye strain, I don't get a headache. I just stop being able to think straight. This is not viable. What do I do about it?
The same thing happens, though much more quickly and intensely, with fluorescent lights. I straight up cannot handle big-box stores, because I get loopy and drifty and confused and very very anxious. This has been a problem with every computer screen I've ever had, in whatever kind of ambient light (though it's worse when the room I'm in is dark). This
is a really close description, though I don't get the nausea described.
All I've found online is a few descriptions of similar experiences. I haven't found any good ideas about how to deal with it. As this screen is a pretty integral part of my life for the foreseeable future, it would be freaking fantastic to be able to minimize this effect. Does anyone have any ideas? If anyone else gets this, how do you deal with it? I know the take-breaks advice, and that helps somewhat, but it's cumulative, and even an hour away doesn't completely eliminate the effects of earlier exposure.
I am pretty light-sensitive, and I do have a bit of a sun allergy, and yeah, upon reflection I guess I have problems with a lot of lighting. But this one is the most inconvenient. Any ideas about how to stop this stupid, stupid thing from happening would be incredibly welcome.
