When scrolling I use a magnifying light to look through as I scroll. I have been having some serious headache and visual problems, that I think may be caused by the strain on my eyes doing this. The magnifying lamp I use has a florescent bulb. I have read in the past that florescent lighting flickers all the time, even though the naked eye does not see it. According to what I have read, this can bother some people and cause headaches, irritation and whatever. I do not know if this is true or not.
Anyway, I am getting to where I want to try some things that may help. I see there are magnifying lamps that can be bought with different types of lighting.
Florescent - what I have
LED - I know nothing about, but it looks like there are no replacement bulbs for the lamps that use it. I don't know if this is a problem. Do they last a long long time? Do they "flicker"? ??
Halogen - what I know if it is the halogen lights I have get very hot. Bulbs are expensive and fragile.
Anyway I am curious if anyone can give me info on what might be best for the eyes. Anyone use magnifying lamp a lot and had experience with one with LED or Halogen lights?
I realize this may not be the problem. I have astigmatism and staring through a magnifier could contribute to my current problems. I have a hard time staring through binoculars, telescopes. But that usually does not cause headaches, just a pain over my eyes while I am looking.
