A while back I got a Hewlet Packard 21kd LED monitor for out desk-top computer, it really looked nice.  After a few general check-ups with teh Opthamologist he noticed that a condition I had was getting slightly worse, and he put me on some eye meds to go along with the Glycoma meds I was already using.  Well, one day after a few long sessions on the computer I noticed some changes.  I stopped all use of the computer and monitor.  Until last week when I decided to change monitors, I got my old Samsung SyncMaster 910t and hooked it up, but was still playing it safe and staying away from the computer.  Just did a few tests with that monitor to make sure it was okay for the family to use.  Today I decided to try looking at one of the many really nice videos you folks have put up here, and I watched Alaska with my two Mavics.  What a difference, the Samsung monitor is so much better, oh, forgot to mention before, it is LCD, rather than led, beleve me the difference was very notable, of course monitors ar subjective, so each of you enjoy what pleases you, as for me, I am staying with the LCD.  But still going to stay off the computer for about a few weeks more and see if the vision gets any better, let us hope

Here is an article that talks about the potential harm that blue light from monitors can cause and how to help fix it. This could be the cause of your eye issues.

Hurley1718  - Thank you so much, have printed that out and am going to digest it later, I do have some Macular Degeneration, possibly caused by computer monitor because, I have spent MANY hours in front of them.  Will let you know how I do.

It is a coincidence that you mention having an eye condition and monitors.
Yesterday I was responding to someone else's post where the mentioned they use a calibrated monitor. Their point being that the monitor would give a true representation of colour. Fair point, of course, it would do. My point was that like many men, I have a colour issue with my vision. I tend to see green slightly blacker than true green. Some people are colour blind and there is everything in between, right up to perfect colour vision. We all accept that what we see is what it is when judging photos and videos for colour. Some responders say they think the colours are to saturated or washed out...
The reality is that apart from personal preference, there may be poor colour rendering on the display device, like a phone with enhanced  setting on or their eyes are not perfect and they have no reason to suspect either are an issue.
I hope anyone who reads this will stop and ask themselves, am I seeing the colour as it should be? Of course their answer will be that there is nothing wrong with their eyes and that they don't need to calibrate their monitor or possibly their printer, because they are happy with the way they are. Everyone else have poor eyes and rubbish equipment.
Then of course we have the upload conversion losses and adjustments made by YouTube and all the others.
What a muddle.

AlansDronePics - Damn good point!  I could have not said it better  I am stealing some time on the computer to put in a notice about FAA rulemaking, and noticed your response.  IHow do you calibrate a monitor?  I am going to check around on that one.  I did get a newer Samsung SyncMaster 940BX, and activated the "Night Light" feature in Windows 10, dropping the color down quite a bit from the higher frequency colors.  Will be seeing the Ophthalmologist Friday and see what she has to say, best get off the computer for now, again, thanks for your reply.

Well, as it turns out I have an eye condition that will get worse with time, also to keep using the computer will shorten that length of time.  So . . .I am sorry to say that I will have to shorten greatly, my use of the computer so that I can enjoy the normal sights for a longer time.  My opinion, I had this condition and did not know it, my eye doctor thought that I knew of it, so never mentioned it.  And, the Blue Light from the computer monitor as I was enjoying all the very fine videos here - it was adding to the damage I already had.  I am going to see what effects this has on actual flying.  Onward and upward safely

Had to have an injection of dye in the left eye.  Have to go back to Retina Specialist May 30, 2019 and find out what the doc says after looking into the eye.  I feel that it has cleared a little bit, not a lot, but it does help.  In the past 28 days BOTH eyes have gotten more sensitive in sunlight, to the point that I wear sunglasses quite a bit when outside, but not all the time.Let us hope the doc has some good news.  I still sneak a peek of the really good videos and stills you folks put up - THANK YOU they are really good to see.
