Re: my monitor hurts my eyes :(

Thanks for the replies everyone, I think Starfighter is right and this is an eyesight issue, not an electronic issue :o I have also gotten migraines while reading books but I didn’t think much of it. Need to get my eyes checked sometime hehe

Yes, because I am NOTHING without the inspect element tool xD It's how I get inspiration and learn.
