So I have to concentrate twice as hard to read text. I hosted a LAN party and it was 36 hours straight gaming and my eyes were fried I could read a word anything lower than a 36 size font. About 2 weeks ago my mom had me go get my eyes checked out at her store, they put drops in my eyes to relax the pupils so you cannot concentrate your eyes at all and they can get an accurate reading and testing. The drops lasted for 4 hours. Everything was blurry, I had my browser at a 300% zoom. I will let my mother know about it and she can tell us. I have a notification on my phone to go off to let her know so I will not forget. Best thing to do flinn is to go get your eyes check out, you sound like you need a good pair of reading glasses or computer glasses.

Thanks! My problem is I am already near sighted (-4, -3.50)and wear glasses. I can't imagine wearing another pair of glasses over my glasses, as if I didn't have enough problems, LMAO!!! I actually thought my vision had gotten worse, and went to the optometrist to get my prescription checked out a few months ago. According to them my presciption only altered slightly in one eye, but not enough to be causing my blurriness on a continual basis even after I've stopped reading books on my computer. I just read them the old fashioned way now.

Hi Flinn,
John has filled me in on the experiences you've been having while reading on your computer. John told me you have recently been to see an optomitrist for an examination. Did you explain the situation to the doctor? It sounds to me that because of your near-sightedness you may be over corrected for reading. There is a new type of lense called the "anti-fatigue lens" that is made for folks your age with this same situation. It is made by a company called Essilor who make all the Varilux progressive lenses middle-aged people wear, however, the anti-fatigue lens is made for younger people for exactly your situation. I would consult your family optician regarding these lenses. We've had much success with these lenses in our opticianry.
I would advise against a chain store type shop as the staffing there usually are undereducated about newer technology.
Let me know how it goes...

Thank you for the advice Mrs. Beaty. I will definately look into those new lenses.

To answer your question, I didn't do much explaining at my local eyewear store when I went to go get my eyes checked, because I just figured I needed a new prescription, and that my experiences were due to eye strain under the old prescription. To tell the truth I don't really think the dr would have cared one way or another. I'll probably be able to explain it better now when I visit a different one. I may also have to look into getting a better monitor.
