I purchased a XPS 15 9570 with the FHD (1080p) screen 4 days ago.
Previously I was using an XPS 13 9343 with the QHD (3200x1800) screen. I got the occasional eye strain but nothing out of the ordinary.
With this new laptop, my eyes get strained and water-y within just 10-20 minutes of use. I have not used the laptop without feeling some sort of eye strain within 30 minutes of use.
An hour later, my eyes look bloodshot red
It is incredibly bothersome and I am not clear why this is happening.
My theory on the cause is that the response time on this monitor feels extremely low. It feels like it's 50-100 ms.
The ghosting on this display is very noticeable and I think the blurriness when scrolling/moving the screen around is causing my eye strain.
However I do feel my eyes getting strained looking at this display even when I'm not moving the screen around too much.
I know it's not caused by the environment because my work environment didn't change. I tried adjusting the brightness/contrast/saturation but still same problem.
- What could be causing my eye strain with this new display?
- Maybe I just need to get used to this new display? Or will I ever be able to?
