I am starting to get some eye strain while using M1 MacBook Air.
Can anybody confirm if is flicker-free or not?
It's either flicker or the blueness is giving me eyestrain.
I have disabled True Tone and Nightshift and it's much better. Let me know if this helps you. Also, I have changed the default red background to black.Yes, I am having the same eye strain issue! Just received the new MBA M1 yesterday and not long after using it noticed a significant amount of eye fatigue. Also feeling as though my eyes need to refocus often when looking around different areas of the screen and graphics. I placed my early 2020 MBA with Catalina side by side and the previous model actually appears to have a better picture.
There is something going on here. Not sure if it is hardware our this new Big Sur UI. I have adjusted many display settings from brightness, True Tone, to graphics pallet and there is still something about this machine/software combo that is hard on the eyes.
It has. I think it was due to Big Sur red background.hii flowave
has the eyestrain problem gone now??
It's hard to say. It could be because it's a brand-new computer with a new OS, and I'm focusing more on the details than I normally do. But the vivid, contrasting colors in the default Big Sur wallpaper was definitely uncomfortable.Curious about this eye strain conversation. Is it mainly the wallpaper causing it, or is it also still noticed while in apps.?
This is the crucial thing. We need guys - you and me - who had eye strain using retina screen. I have a non-retina macbook air, no issues. It's getting slower, so I really wanted to switch - twice - but retina kills my eyes. Not to mention OLED iphones... So yes, there are several people out there with this sensitivity and one of those guys needs to check M1. Due to pandemic, all the stores are closed, I couldn't check it out, but I will when it's available.Yes, I was hoping that there would be something different about the M1 macs now that intel drivers are not a part of the graphics equation. Unfortunately, still have the same issue.
I had the same eye strain with 16" macbook pro, recent 13" macbook pro, 2020 macbook air, recent 15" macbook pros.
Did not have eye strain with 2019 macbook air, and my old 2015 macbook pro 13. My thought is it's an issue with dithering used to achieve the p3 color gamut. Both of these use full srgb but not p3 displays.
Do not get eyestrain with any of the recent LCD iphones..

Btw. my experience: Eye strains, head ache, eye ache, actually it seems, I'm unable to focus because everything is so smooth on the screen, too much details. When I check a website with white background and black text on it and look around, I can see the text in front of me. Burn in feeling. Weird, however my eyes are completely fine, and my wife has the same issues. So too many cases out there not to be true
Did you have a chance to check the screen so far? I would be surprised if the intel graph. is the bad guy in this setup. Let us know man, let's figure it out before any investment.
I made it simpler. I need a mac. A mac has retina screen. Issue is retina screen, I do not care what and why. 2015 Macbook air non-retina doesn't have dithering issue? only Retina screen? So what is the issue? Retina. LOL. Let's focus on the problem, technical details doesn't solve the issue and my headache.eye strain is not due to retina screen.
its due to dithering.
