When I was younger, my mom finally decided it was convienient enough to get me into an eye doctor once more. In addition to finding the obvious nearsightedness, they diagnosed me with double hyperphoria (or alternating hyperphoria). Little was known from this eye doctor who had been an optometrist for 20+ years. He had read about this in books but never actually had a case.
Nothing ever got done about it since there is little knowledge about this condition other than it is a neurological issue. "If it isnt broke, dont fix it" I always say. Up until recent, I always had sporadic incidents of my double hyperphoria kicking in. Now it does happen more often, usually provoked by strobe lights (Im a club goer) or when Im driving at night and someone's headlights glare at me from an odd angle.
Today, I felt compelled to join here and seek info. Why? Well, my graphic design job has fit me with 2 monitors. One is a CRT and my primary is a modern flatscreen. Since the addition of the secondary CRT monitor, I find my double hyperphoria "getting confused" if I am needing to look at both screens during the same instant. I suppose the only cure is to not do that.
