Enough! I’ve tried looking online for a solution to this headache and tremendous eye strain that I get when using the iPad. Initially when I Googled this problem, I found no results which led me into believing that I was the only one suffering. That was 2 years ago and I had to stop using the Apple iPads to the extent that even looking at a quick video that someone else showed me, or reading a quick line started to give me that weird eye strain and migraine feeling.
Lately, that’s after 2 years I realised that it wasn’t just me!! I was in conversation with my sister in law and she said her father couldn’t use the iPad because of eye strain and headache. That’s not all, another friend complained of the same a few weeks ago. With my most precious purchase at one point being completely useless for me, I was obviously not very happy about it. But when you think of the number of people unhappy with the device’s screen, can you imagine what a widely sold health hazard this iPad is!?
The screen of the iPad 2 is pretty crap, very pixelated and throws this sharpish radiation. I also use my laptop almost the entire day, the Google Nexus 5, my latest gadget love and even the iPhone 5. They’re all okay. Infact even the new iPad retina displays seem to be okay as I did use one for a brief period.
Once bitten twice shy. I’m never buying an iPad again! If you too are getting a headache after using the iPad, I suggest you return that piece of agonising machinery back to Apple and ask for your money back. I promise you, you’re not alone, there are thousands suffering from this and in loneliness. No one seems to be writing anything about this or acknowledging it either.
