HoloLens 2. Users feedback on sore eyes

Copper Contributor

I am working with a Training company implementing HoloLens 2. into practical Construction related learning & assessment.

Feedback from the first group of 12 users includes a high percentage of reporting that HoloLens makes their eyes sore. 

Those of us who have been using HoloLens for 8+ months don't have this experience. 

Has anyone else had this feedback form users and if so does it diminish with them becoming experienced with HoloLens?

Very few complaints here, but of the few, all of them have disappeared after the first/second use. 
I myself experienced the same eye fatigue on the first time wearing the headset, but second/third time it was also gone.  

If they still experience issues after 2/3rd time, run eye calibration and lower brightness a couple 10%s with the brightness adjustment knob.

@Raidennn Thank you for your reply. Helpful suggestions.
