    I started at a new firm in April. They gave me a laptop and two 24" monitors. We also work in a Virtual Desktop environment. I was having terrible issues with my vision and didn't know what was the cause; I'd have to close my eyes and put my head down... I wanted to do this for 5 minutes at a time but didn't want to look like I was napping. I mentioned it to a few ppl in my office and they looked and said they could see the oddities I was dealing with on one of my monitors. One guy said, "Oh, that's the old, cheap monitor from (other satellite) office. Let's get you a new one." It came last week and I haven't experienced any more issues. I had no idea it was just my monitor.

    ^ very interesting Leanne. I am glad that helped, its is funny but I always thought that a good monitor would make things much easier on our eyes. What monitors did you get?
    I have two 24" Asus monitors form several years ago and they are been great, but I just ordered two 27" Ultrasharp. Keeps us posted.

    It's the same model as the monitor that was NOT giving me issues. So, now my monitors match.

    I remember on the old CRT monitors I couldn't work on anything that didn't have a high refresh rate. I could see the screen flicker and would have a raging headache after no-time... It's amazing how much of a difference something so simple can make.

    I've had three 27" Ultrasharp monitors for 4 or 5 years. Great monitors!

    Thanks for the concern and feedback. Dr appt booked for Saturday.

    This is most likely overwork/dehydration/malnutrition/atrophy. I stayed off the computer all weekend drinking lots of water, no coffee, bbq and chores, playing with kids. Slightly fewer dizzy episodes. I hope it's something within my control. Will keep you guys posted.

    If it is screen-time related, I may have difficulty shaking this off as I deal mainly with drainage. Very screen intensive and everything is custom for a true install ready model for contractors. Wish there was an "easy drain" add on or something. Anyhow, thanks for the comments.

    Sorry to here koolair. My eye doc told me about the 20/20/20 rule, and it helped me greatly when I was still designing a lot: https://www.juststand.org/blog/preve...20-20-20-rule/

    It's not the "brightness of the screen", it's the constant focus that is the formal medical issue with staring at monitors. From what I've been told anyways. But yeah man, 14 hours a day at 6 days a week is simply too much sitting and screen time. That's the obvious root of your issue I think, without any medical knowledge whatsoever.

    I also feel very uncomfortable recently, very sleepy every day, maybe because of sleeping late, but always the same sleep time, but recently feel very sleepy.

    If you notice you stare too much at the screen and sit too long, install the program workrave.
    http://www.workrave.org/
    I had a lot of issues with the constant sitting and staring and now i just get a 1-2 mins break every 15 mins.
    In the beginning it is very annoying, but you will get used to it.
    I got it set to 14 mins work and 1 min break.
