    I noticed after playing every Phoenix Wright game my eye twitches here and there for a few days afterwards, I liked the games a lot and it would go away after 2 days everytime I played so I shrugged it off, I think it was because of all the text boxes causing flashing. Then, I played Bioshock 2 months ago and now it's been happening everyday a few times a day since I beat it, I'm hoping it will just go away being I'm not playing those kind of games now. Does anyone else have this type of problem when they play a certain game and if they have has it gone away, it's got me a little worried being it's been almost 2 months with this problem [​IMG] It stinks too because Apollo Justice is coming out very soon.

    Aww, sounds sad, not to be able to play the games you want to play,
    because of some obstacles.. hope it isn't too serious,
    and that it might .. go away.

    wow. so far it seems i'm one of the few on gbatemp that have this problem. i'll just ask my doctor about it when i have to go anyway for my yearly in two weeks, hopefully it will just clear up on it's own.

    It's most likely not a really serious problem; that type of warning is not meant to protect you from harm, it's meant to protect Nintendo from lawsuits. Still, if you're seeing the doctor soon anyway, you should ask about it.

    It's an eye-strain thing that happens when you stare at screens for too long, I get it sometimes from computer monitors. You can keep playing, just cut down your usage of computers and games a little bit, turn the brightness down and it should go away on it's own in a couple of weeks or so.

    The only thing that makes my eyes twitch on the DS is the stuck pixel fixer.

    I only get eye twitches whenever I am on the computer in the dark for too long.
    Since then I've learned to reduce the contrast

    Well I probably do stare at the computer screen too long, it's part of my job, and that never bothered me lol as my eye just started twitching now as I stare at the monitor typing this [​IMG] , but with the mix of certain games it now does. I do have the brightness on the DS all the way up like one of the posts mentioned as well, I didn't know that was bad. I'm going to cut back on my gaming, I play for two hours in a row once in a while and don't take a break which I should be doing after half hour and will be doing now on those occasions and will lower the brightness, if I do play I'll hold the ds a bit further away from me as well. I appreciate the replies, this was worrying me a lot, and I would recommend others to do this regimen while playing, just in case [​IMG]

    You should see an optician. You may have slight astigmatism.
