Captain Steroid: Is... is this real? O_o'


Well, CVS is real and some of the advice is word for word what I tell patients. But still tongue in cheek with the level of humor I would expect from the AOA.

I play video games and then suddenly, at some point out of nowhere, my eyes are burning terribly. Every time I've gotten so engrossed that I don't know what's wrong with me. Over, and over, I have to figure out I forgot to blink for half an hour.

You'd think I would learn eventually.

if your eyes *aren't* strained, you'll see the hidden image in the video.

You mean aqueous humor?

Is computer vision syndrome when you try and watch a video, it gets 10 seconds in and then freezes?  If so, I must have it.

I had a roommate who was like that. We'd be playing a fighting game, and it would start getting intense, and then he would shout "My eyes!", pause the game, drop the controller, and rub his eyes while blinking furiously.

You people need to learn to blink during your shoryukens.

"Off-beat perspectives on health topics from Dr. James Hamblin". Now there's something where I always go with the off-beat perspective. Dumbass.

So why aren't we getting un-lit screen options? I can provide my own light, thank you very much.

Why CVS and not, say, Walgreen's?

If front-lit displays ever become a thing, it will be awesome. I really don't know how difficult it would be to create. I don't mean GameBoy style. I mean clear as a painting on a wall but the picture moves.

Three minutes is far too much of my life to waste on this d-bag.

That being said...(begin third party CSB):

Sister's auditing co-worker was deep in spreadsheet analysis (teeny black type on white screen) when someone called out to the co-worker, who looked up across the room.  And promptly sprained her eye muscles as she tried to change focus.  Apparently it's excruciating pain, and the only remedy is resting the eye muscles for a couple days.  So she got sick leave but she had to sit, doing nothing, with bandages over her eyes for several days.

Mine do that, too, but it's usually because the edibles are kicking in about then.

For more examples of optometry humor, google "Montgomery Vickers Chair side" to read the thrilling accounts of the Dave Barry of Eyedocs.

I would think the problem with a screen like that would be getting bright enough whites. The e-ink screen on a Kindle or Nook reader is kind of....grey. Even under direct light it doesn't look white.

Technically you could make a front-lit screen right now just by taking the lighting element out of your LCD monitor and replacing it with a piece of white plastic. It would suck.

My doctor specifically told me NOT to blink.
