Analysis: New iPad’s Retina Display Reduces Eye Strain

by on March 20th, 2012

Gary Heiting, an optometrist and associate editor of All About Vision, claims that the new iPad’s gorgeous Retina Display “eases the inherent strain” on the eyes while staring at a glowing screen for hours (via Mashable). The expert believes that the closer you can get the screen resolution to be similar to the human eye itself, the better it’s going to be in terms of visual comfort, which stands true of the new iPad’s ultra-high resolution display packing 2048 x 1536 resolution at 264 ppi.

According to Heiting:

“A key factor in something that’s called computer vision syndrome, or just eye strain from computer use, is screen resolution,” Heiting says. “The new iPad, with twice the resolution of the iPad 2, 264 ppi (pixels per inch) instead of 132, people are going to notice less pixelation, especially in a small typeface. It’s not just an enjoyment issue or an aesthetic issue, but it’s definitely a visual comfort isue, over time.”

“When you’ve got movement going, that’s a whole new level of neurology involved in vision. So the greater clarity, the greater color saturation for gaming should make the new iPad significantly more comfortable on people’s eyes than the previous models.”
