    Well folks, I just noticed one thing. When I'm playing games on Asus TF 700 I have no problems with my eyes and my vision after the game. It is top class for HD screen.
    But after just 15 minutes playing 3D games on my iPad 4, I have shadows in the front of my eyes and sometimes blur in some points. Definitely too much pixels overload my eyes.
    Anyone else have the same experience as I have?

    It's set to "auto".Never to high..i know why you asking, but it's nothing to do with brightness i think..

    I say it has everything to do with brightness.......take it off auto and set it to 30%
    "Pixel overload"........nonsense IMHO.

    If it still doesn't work then it's problem with the game graphics.

    Well, Retina Screen is just a slang term in the Apple community that apple uses. The difference between the Asus and the iPad 4 is 40 pixels per inch.

    I think it's the brightness ;)

    I set the brightness on 30 percent but it's still the same situation and only when I played 3D games.

    Curious....I have an iPad 3 and had a TF700...I never had a problem. Had a Kindle Fire HD 8.9. Same deal. Now have a Nexus 10...once again, same deal. The screens are very similar. For me. Maybe your eyes or your iPad is somehow different. Hard to know...

    Maybe I am just getting older :) 40 now And I am not getting younger :) Probably something with my eyes. The only doubt is the TF 700-have no issue. Folks, thank you for your replies.

    You have Apple Retina Display Overload Syndrome a very serious condition. I suggest you make an appointment with a Genius at your nearest Apple store and see if they can fix your eyes I mean they're called Genius for a reason huh ;) :D

    Have you seen an optometrist? Seriously. The screen is bright and sharp. That's why I got this one, over my first generation. To compensate for fading aging eyesight, an astigmatism, and the faint lingering and changing cataract in my right eye. All things that were there before, but never were a problem for me, that I couldn't unconsciously compensate for.

    Now that I wear my glasses much more, my eye fatigue from iPad use is far far less.

    Have you tried playing games under different light conditions? Ambient vs., room lights on?

    Also try holding the iPad at different distances away from you. An inch or two plus or minus could make a difference.

    Finally, I play Need For Speed "Most Wanted"
    on iPad 2 and must admit I begin to have eye fatigue after 20 - 30 minutes. I'm 56 and wear eye bifocals.
