I just bought a new 2017 13 inch MacBook Pro without Touch Bar.

I've experienced issues with the iPhone X because of PWM.

I was wondering if my MBP would cause me similar issues or not?

Also, does one experience issues with PWM when the screen brightness is low or high?

PWM = Pulse with Modulation for those who didn't know what PWM was (I had to google it myself).

From my understanding the 13 inch MacBooks don’t. However the 15 inch does, but at a higher frequency that shouldn’t produce any symptoms.

Okay, great.

I think may be experiencing some slight symptoms from having started using the MBP. Do you guys think it's possible my eyes are adjusting to the new Retina display after using a Dell laptop for several years?
