Looks like a photocopy

    I've basically just returned to work after two and a half weeks off sick.

    Maybe it's the fluorescent lights, but Im looking at things, well, the
    written word, hand writing with pens, or even printouts, and at 40cm
    away, they look like a cheap photocopy or a scan, with softened edges
    and colour alignment issues.

    But Im looking at the computer monitor here, and it looks fine, no
    problems what so ever. They've just upgraded to LCD screens. I hope
    that's not anything to do with it?

    My eyes do feel tired, but the idea that I could read the screen better
    than the paper is bizarre.

    And it seems to be certain types of print. For example, I can read the
    newspaper fine from the same distance.

    Now, I do have a pair of weak glasses in line with what my minor results
    were, the slight astigmatism, and the slight hyperopia I think it is,
    long sightedness, and things look fantastic.

    Why have things deteriorated so much? Am I just getting used to
    fluorescent tubes again, or to LCD screens? I fail to see how my
    eyesight has deteriorated so much over the past two weeks. My eyes do
    feel tired (even though I've had two weeks off!

    Any ideas what's going on?
