Think my vision is getting messed up
    #3119455 - 09/10/04 06:54 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I think it's mostly because of being at a computer for long periods of time with a CRT monitor at 60hz. It doesn't go any higher than that. When I get a job, I'll buy a new one, but until then I'm stuck with this monitor.

Anyways, I've noticed (over the past 6 months or longer) that my vision will blur sometimes and I have to try to focus again. It's gotten to the point where it feels like a releif to let my vision stay blurred sometimes. And it takes effort to keep my eyes focused sometimes.

Has anyone else experienced this? Am I permanently screwing up my eyes? I have good vision (15/20 in one eye and 20/20 in the other) and I don't want to mess it up.

I also think it might have something to do with weed and drugs (psychedelics to be exact). I remember reading that weed makes your cornea relax or something. Plus, I figure it can't be good when I do drugs that make my pupils cover almost all of the iris.

What do you think?

Yeah man, I know what you are saying, I have 20/20 vision but I get those same effects sometimes, I have really noticed it when I use the on-screen guide on digi cable and can barely read the words from a certain distance until I force myself to focus.

you NEED to get a BIG monitor with a HIGH refresh rate.  Back when I got into computers as a kid there was no such thing and it destroyed my vision :frown:

Proper lighting is also key.

I found out what the main problem is - weed. I just started regularly smoking in the last year and I've only been noticing problems since then. Plus, whenever I smoke now I notice that my vision gets really messed up for the duration of the high. It becomes very hard to focus on things and not let my vision get blurry.

I'm sure my crappy monitor isn't helping, but I've been on my computer tons since I was 14. If it were going to mess up my vision, it would have done it a while ago.

This sucks because I really enjoy smoking, but it looks like I'm going to have to quit. It's not worth losing my vision over.

weed's not much of a problem if you stop smoking it

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.
