Maybe it's just eyestrain. Funny how we spend so much time in front of computers. Headaches from eyestrains are no fun

You know, every few years it might not hurt to have an eye test, just to see where you are, so to speak. A bit nearsighted or farsighted.

Glasses are no big deal. If you need them, once you get used to them, (will be about a month) you will be perfectly fine with them. I have had them since I was a little kid. Never tried contact lenses.

Good luck, we lihe you here

Caffeine can give tremendous headaches too. I just had one today that lasted about 7 hours. (I didn't drink a caffeine beverage soon enough and in sufficient quantities).

If you're using IE, you can click on "View", scroll to "Text size" and increase the ...well,... the text size.


btw...Unless it's herbal, or de-caf tea, it has caffeine.

I go into some peoples offices and they have their screen resolution set so tiny that you can barely read it. I sometimes comment on it, and they say its because they have to see multiple windows at once etc., etc. I always set mine to the biggest practical font size and haven't had problems with my eyes at all.

You never mentioned how old you are, but your eyeballs do change with age.

Went to reading glasses about three years ago when I had difficulty reading magazine print (various colors), although I could still see black and white print fine. Also low-light conditions hampered my vision.

Just had an eye exam last week, and I am now being fitted for bi-focals. This from a guy who had 20/10 vision until the age of 44!! Kinda sucks, but it isn't the end of the world.

Definitely have your eyes checked!
