    Monitor calibration vs eye stress

    I did a search for monitor calibration and I was trying to accommodate the settings according to radasa's monitor calibration thread. I could not get it entirely accurate but it gave better results than the settings I was previously using.

    The overall brightness increased, and I was able to see darker colors more clearly than before. The thing is, I'm noticing its stressing my eyesight. So I reduced the overall brightness again, though now I know its not properly calibrated and images I see will look different on this screen than others.

    I really don't know what to do. I'm in a pretty well lighted surrounding, maybe I should change the lights.

    If you're in a well lit area try dimming the room lights. Your eye strain may not be from the monitor itself but from light bouncing off the monitor into your eyes. I definately do not recommend un-calibrating a monitor.

    i managed to really fuck up my settings using adobe gamma. I don't recommend it either, it took a lot of screaming and a river of tears to set things straight. If you are rolling in cash buy a "spider" to calibrate your screen. Remeber also to look at your screen from 90 degree angle and keep at least 5 minutes breaks from watching the screen every hour.
