do other people get this thing where when they're reading words seem to "glow" or make dark lines between the lines of text

additional details: the "glow" version of the effect is more noticable on a computer screen, but the "line" version is more noticable in print, where it seems to flicker a bit. it's most noticable with dark text on light background but it happens with everything.

@anonny125 hm. I get stuff like that, occasionally, but I just associate it with fatigue or something like that. weird optical contrast effect I think (cf. "irradiation" - en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irradi)

@chara It might be fatigue related (im basically constantly fatigued lmao) but that link doesn't seem like the right thing.

@anonny125
I get the glow thing, I think it's because black text leaves a white afterimage on your retinas.

@anonny125 subtitles on tvs 'glow' for me but thats bc my eyes are bad and cannot focus
