For several years people have asked what causes headaches and their eyes to hurt when using a computer. The following gives several possible causes and how to fix them.

Most important is that everyone realize that every living being on earth is different than all other living beings. Regardless of what anyone might claim, humans are not identical, nor the same, and definitely not equal. Compared to other people, you yourself are more sensitive to some things, while also being less sensitive to other things. Some individuals feel nothing when near high frequencies, while other individuals feel pain. This article's topics are intended for the people who are able to feel what other people cannot feel.

Basic Physics

As is observable everywhere throughout the universe, everything in the universe makes waves in other things. The waves of air pressure enable hearing. Waves of light enable sight. All of electronics is based upon waveforms. Shapes of specific sizes and densities resonate when pressured by specific frequencies. Every living being in the universe is sensitive to waves. How sensitive an individual is to waves of electromagnetic force (EMF) depends on the person's shapes, densities, nervous system, and conscious awareness of what their body is feeling.

Whether good or bad, some individuals are highly sensitive to EMF. When the EMF waves are of a specific frequency, the person may feel anything from discomfort and nausea, to feeling intense physical pain.

If you feel pain from a computer, then your choices are limited, but, fortunately, you do still have choices.

Discerning The Type of Pain

There is a difference of 'pain' when muscles are overworked, as compared or when the muscles have sharp objects stuck into them. Each individual is personally responsible of consciously recognizing the differences between the pains caused by internal physical exertion, and the pains caused by external influences.

When using a computer, do the eyes hurt from being tired due to looking at a monitor for a long time, or are the eyes hurting from an external cause? How quickly does the pain arise? If you do not know if your pain is caused from the outside or the inside, then you will not as easily find the causes.

Pain From Looking At A Monitor

If the pain is fatigue from looking at a monitor for a long time, then the solutions are usually pretty easy: [1] choose software that has darker themes (i.e. use LibreOffice instead of Office® 2013-2019, or better yet, create your own dark theme for Windows® which makes Word® look beautiful), [2] verify that your computer has the latest drivers for your specific monitor (some older drivers may not work well with new operating system updates), [3] for peace of mind, verify that your monitor is okay by using a different monitor to determine if the same discomfort occurs, and, of course, [4] do not use a computer as long (if possible).

If you are on Windows 10-11, another option is to try Windows XP, 7, and 8.1 with dark themes. Yes, XP is still a very good operating system, but not favored for any online use. Using an XP/7 computer offline while having a second computer with Linux for online use can be ideal for a lot of people. For many individuals, they chose to down-grade from Windows 10 back to Windows 7.

Beginning with Office 2013 and Windows 8, the operating system themes were purposefully limited to being predominately white, which is a huge health problem for office workers who have to use a computer all day. The Windows 8/8.1 Dark Mode - Office 2010 and 2013 article shows how you can create your own dark theme using the built-in high contrast themes.

If you do a lot of text work, then perhaps the most favored option might be to completely stop using Windows, and to choose a Linux distribution. Linux's graphics are intensely superior over Windows, which results in much clearer text that is much easier on one's eyes.

Your eyes are intensely more valuable than any operating system. If your eyes get tired working on a computer, then it really is okay for you to choose a different operating system. For myself, my favorite Linux distribution is Solus Linux Budgie. Not only does Solus Budgie have a dark theme along with the superior text quality, it is also the most comfortable Linux distribution known.

Pain From Outside Of Oneself

You'll know when your eyes are pulsating from an EMF wave; the pulsating is fast, deep, harsh, and usually occurs shortly after booting the computer. Windows 10 is notorious for causing eye pain when the operating system first boots. I myself have not yet seen a Windows 10 computer that was not extremely painful. As an example, I have a test computer that runs XP, Vista, 7, 8.1, and Linux without much of any discomfort, but within seconds of booting Windows 10 the eye pain is severe, which quickly leads to a severe headache that doesn't fully fade for several hours or days after no longer using Windows10. Unplugging the monitor, removing the cable to the monitor, removing the ethernet cable, with no Bluetooth nor other wireless device, and without anything whatsoever connected to the Windows 10 computer, the eye pain is almost immediate when booting the computer. The problem is not monitor related, nor hardware related; the problem is Windows 10.

Due to the eye's shape, for many people their eyes will be sensitive to the frequencies that RAM uses. Defective RAM might be the culprit, which can easily be determined by using RAM from another computer that has known good RAM. If the pain remains, then the problem is most likely in the Windows operating system itself, of which nothing can be changed.

One partial solution for Windows 10 is to under-clock the RAM and CPU in the motherboard bios. Under-clocking helps to lower the EMF frequency, but the under-clocking will have little or no effect on Windows' data stream. Data streams are analogous to the sound of a dial-up modem starting; even if the frequencies are lowered, the painful headache-inducing noise will remain.

Investigating Personal Options

Sensitivity generally does not change, but the electronic devices that emit EMF do change. Windows XP and 7 were generally relatively quiet of EMF, but Windows 8.1 got harsh during the final updates, and all known Windows 10 computers have always been harsh. If XP and 7 are not an option for you due to their no longer being supported (even Firefox will stop supporting Windows 7 within about a year), then there is the option of using Linux. Linux uses different core data processing than Windows, which appears to make all Linux distributions far less painful than the latest Windows versions.

Nevertheless, some Linux distributions are still very uncomfortable to work with. Within my own firsthand experience, the quietest Linux is Solus Budgie. I have been using Solus Budgie for about two years, and at present I am coding this article on Solus Budgie with the Bluefish editor. The computer that Solus Budgie is running on was recently used to test Windows 10, of which I could not endure more than a few minutes because of the pain, but with Solus, I can comfortably work on the computer all day. (I had bought the like-new motherboard and CPU on Ebay super cheap, and since it also had a Windows 10 key already registered to the motherboard, I decided to give it a test just for fun. The immediate eye pain and headaches were horrible, and likely why the previous owner got rid of the motherboard.)

Solus Budgie has a good dark theme, the software also has the dark theme, and the text quality is superb. Installing needed Windows programs in Solus Budgie has also proven to work very well. Oh, and too, Solus Budgie is free to download and use, but, if you do use Solus Budgie, you will likely be as me, and donate some bucks to support Solus and to say thank you for ending our pain.

To repeat, for many people the problem of externally-caused eye pain and headaches is not the RAM, nor the monitor, nor the computer; it's the operating system. At the moment, I know of no in-service operating system as good as Solus Budgie. (For myself, I prefer a tweaked Windows 8.1 with a dark theme so that I have full use of the software that I need and use most often, but I still rely on Solus Budgie for a lot of online use.)

Various Anomalies

[1] Within my own firsthand experiences, for over 20 years Intel® motherboards have by far been the cause of most customers' headaches and eye pains, and the pains existed regardless of which operating system was used (Windows 98+). The problem, however, was always easily remedied: use an AMD motherboard. Within my own experiences, MSI and Biostar seem to have the best designs that reduce EMF radiation.

[2] As expected, different people are sensitive to different CPU frequencies. As a general working estimate, clocking a CPU at 2ghz is a starting point for reducing headaches and sore eyes. Further testing at 1.6ghz and then 1ghz ought to give the user an idea if the CPU frequency is or is not the cause of one's discomforts.

[3] The power settings in Windows are usually best left at 100% so as to prevent Windows from throttling frequencies up and down. The constant changes of frequencies easily cause an increase of headaches (analogous of hearing a screaming kid's voice repeatedly going up and down of pitch and volume).

[4] Related to #3, check your motherboard bios to ensure that any automated 'CPU power savings' setting is turned off. MSI's CPU power savings is named 'Cool 'N Quiet'. Turn that sucker off; keep the CPU at one frequency.

[5] The 5g Opens Champagne Bottle article gives an example of what happens when a person is located in a harmonics field. If a house has wireless devices, then headaches, fatigue, and eye pains are to be expected. A computer by itself might not be the problem, but when the computer is booted, the computer's EMF field then combines with existing EMF fields, creating the harmful EMF harmonic field that causes felt pain. If an individual is serious about eliminating headaches and eye pain, then the individual will choose to not use any wireless device whatsoever.

Funny Weird Stuff

[1] One customer was hearing her neighbor's voice on the customer's computer monitor. It was an old CRT monitor, and though there were no speakers, the neighbor's voice came through clear enough to understand what was being said. The problem was that the CRT's high voltage coil was resonating with the neighbor's wireless telephone output, and the high voltage coil's physical resonance produced an audible recreation of the telephone's output signal. The solution was pretty easy: simply buy a newer style LCD monitor.

[2] In another house, a few times each week within the hallway there was the muffled sound of what sounded like a chanting satanic cult along with a leading male voice. Sometimes the sound grew so loud that the homeowner thought someone in the living room had the television turned up too loud. After hearing the sounds several times, the homeowner recognized the pattern: the chanting began at specific times and on specific days. The noise's cause was then obvious: there was a new church building built several properties to the north, the building had metal siding, and a power line ran behind the church building to behind the homeowner's house which also had a metal roof. Every Wednesday evening, and three times on Sundays, the church's singing and preaching were harmonically transmitted from the church building to the house by the power lines. The solution was easy: the homeowner better grounded his house's metal exterior, and the chanting stopped.

EMF harmonics are common. Sometimes people think that harmonics are some sort of paranormal event, but, I myself have not witnessed anything that could not be easily explained and as easily remedied.


Everything in the universe is composed of waves, and everything is affected by everything else's waves. When shapes resonate with wave frequencies, weird things can and do happen. You will resonate with waves when a frequency matches your shapes.

Some people will consciously recognize themselves resonating from electrical EMF frequencies, but some people are unable to consciously recognize their own resonating. Microwave ovens are an excellent example: some people have been injured by microwave ovens, but the people only felt themselves getting hot, while not feeling their bodies resonating.

There is nothing wrong with you if you are feeling pain from computers, and, in fact, it shows that your body and nervous system are more acute than normal.

Something to think about: if computers and wireless devices are painful, then there is the option of moving to a remote region where there are few or no electronic devices. There, where the ambient environment is quiet, there are countless waves that are fascinating to consciously feel and observe. I did that once; no AC electricity, nor telephone; the best five years of my life.
