Just take a break for a day or two and sleep a couple extra hours.



I mostly play RTS and Moba style games now adays as well as ALOT of benchmarking. I do play other games however such as the witcher 3 and Crysis 3, and recently Ashes of the Singularity. I love gaming on the cutting edge and refuse to accept any compromises. Proud member of the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race. Long Live SHIO!!!! 

I'd say eye drops would help, most eye related irritation is actually due to a lack of blinking which is caused by staring at a screen for a long period of time. The lack of blinking causes moisture levels to drop so your eyes become irritated.

Other than that, because you have actual blurred vision, I'd say that sleep should fix it. I'd also suggest not sitting as far away/close to the screen (which ever is appropriate) again and don't game for as long as you did to cause the strain. The lighting in the room could also be a possible thing to look at changing.

Ah thanks sir, and i make sure the light in my room is as bright as possible.

and i've been diagnosed with myopia due to, too much close-to-the TV gaming back in the SNES and PS1 days.

It goes away when i use my glasses, but i hear using your glasses actually makes it worse, is this true?



according to doctor house you might have microtumor in your tempor lobe:p

There is some truth to the notion that wearing glasses can cause worsening of your myopia (http://www.myopia.org/) but simply playing games or reading up close isn't the cause of myopia. Your genetics also play a part and so you obviously have had myopia passed on to you which you switched on with your game playing. Also your eyes continue to develop and change until you reach about 21ish at which point, your eyes shouldn't get any worse in terms of myopia (at least not for a long time) 

I have myopia also, I wear contact lenses myself because I find them far more comfortable and far less intrusive than glasses and find that my peripheral vision is also far better than with glasses.



 

Could be many things.. Might make sense to visit the doc. I remember having those back in the day and i had a severe eye infection and astigmatism.

Better safe than sorry right.



Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd.

5 THINGS I'd like to see before i knock out:

a. a AAA 3D sonic title

b. a nintendo developed game that has a "M rating"

c. redesgined PS controller

d. SEGA back in the console business

e. M$ out of the OS business

Just take a break for a day or two

 

So it don't happen again

 

1- Dont stay too close to the TV

2- Take a 5 mins break(ur eyes off the TV) if ur game session lasted for more than 60 mins

 

So it NEVER happen again

 

- Try awakening your Sharingan like i did (it makes on-line games much easier too)

I got intense strain from my old Sony Bravia (60Hz) and then got a 200Hz LG. Not only is there zero eye-strain, I also see just how crappy cheaper LCD's are. It's worth the extra money.



Rest and don't game as much. If you have to game make sure you sleep longer and use eye drops.



It's just that simple.
