    I just had a quick question and decided to put it here since it deal with MBP's and other laptops.

    Does looking at the screens cause eye problems?

    It can. Your question is much too general to get a meaningful answer.

    I too have become senstive to LCD screens.

    After lots of research I discovered that my issue was low contrast. Most inexpensive laptops come with very low contrast LCD panels 200:1 or less (often much less).

    Sadly, it is hard to find good panels on the type of notebooks you find at most big box stores, and staff at those places are generally very ignorant.

    Happily Apple uses panels that are minimum 400:1 (MacBook).

    Having a matte panel may also help by eliminating reflections.

    4 months after i started video editing, i had to start using glasses. Coincidence? I think not.

    Glare might strain your eyes. Eye doctors recommend focus looking at something else than the screen in certain intervals and keep blinking the eyes.

    I also experienced constantly bending myhead to look on a lower laptop screen gives me neck strains. It would be the best option to connect the laptop to an external display if using it for a long period in home or office.

    Yeah...I mean if you listen to music to much/loud it's bad for your ears.

    I noticed I started getting some floaters and I've been using my laptop a lot...I didn't know if there was a coincidence. I went to my eye doctor but they said everything seemed fine.

    I was just wondering if the screens caused them?
