Why does my LCD monitor sting my eyes?

Why does my Viewsonic 2235wm monitor sting my eyes @ its native resolution of 1680x1050? It is not a question of text size because my Toshiba laptop with the same text size @ 1440x900, or my other computer with a Samsung monitor @1280x1024 with the same text size, don't bother my eyes at all.
If I lower the resolution of the Viewsonic monitor, or increase text size, my eyes still seem to sting, just not as bad.

Is there something that needs adjusting, or is this just a bad monitor? Your help would be appreciated. Thank you.

By the way, I have a eVGA 260 video card with the Viewsonic monitor.

i think it's more medical than technical

how long do you use your computer per day?

You aren't blinking enough. Lowering the brightness could help.

(Seriously. I read an interesting study about this - I'll see if I can find it)

I think a read an article not so long ago about Japanese creating glasses that forces you to blink periodically.

Edit:
Found the article here.

Huh. This monitor is quite bright. Maybe I will try lowering the brightness and see what that does. Thanks.

Lower brightness.....manufacturers bang it up real hi to make it look good on store shelves under flourescent lighting.

My son just rec'd a new Dell U2410.....he now has it next to his old monitor......the 2410 is set to 30% brightness....the old one is at 100% and the 2410 looks twice as bright.

maybe the old display is going dim from old age?

to OP: if you hear a buzzing sound when you get too near your display, perhaps your display has hybridized with africanized honeybees? that might also explain the stinging feeling...

or not :-)
