Lately, my eyes have started going all weird. Its like i can see little white flashy things in them and round the edge of my view is all wavy like water. :confused: Has anyone else had this before and know whats wrong or do you think it could be the computer screen affecting my eyesight like i thought?

CRT...?
they emit UV radiation... the stuff that the sun gives out...
no worries, but it's the cause of skin cancer with some people... esp those who goes abroad...
it's probably even worse for the (sensitive) eyes...
CRT monitors only emit a bit of it tho...
if it's bothering you too much, get a TFT...

Had you paused to consider the possibility that you might be travelling forwards in time?

Also: if you are still able to perceive (and consciously manipulate) the Windows GUI, several hours after retiring for the night, then you may want to decrease the 'gamma' setting by around 7000%. This applies similarly if you find yourself able to discern the composition of your desktop wallpaper through an adjoining wall.

To paraphrase: should your monitor display appear to be visible through brick walls/layers of another, ostensibly opaque, material, then one would prescribe a slight reduction in the 'gamma' setting. Failing that, you may be needing a new pair of retinas.

That is all.

A TFT monitor will improve this, since I got my TFT its been a god send, I no longer get head aces and everything is much crisper making it easier to read. You also have the advantage of not having huge bright electron guns staring at your eyes flashing about 75 times a second.

when using the computer for long periods of time, every 20mins or so just look away from the monitor and focus on something else,

ostensibly opaque
Surely ostensibly doesn't make sense there?
