You know, in part, the answer. And you know that you need to go to an Ophthalmologist (not an optometrist).
Having said that, I am a guy that has had more eye surgeries than I can count. Numerous in each eye, including cataract correction in each eye. I notice that plasma is easier on my eyes than LCD. The best is our theater room with a 108" screen. That is because the screen covers a "goodly" percentage of my periphery, and I do not have that fried-retina response to a small bright screen "framed" with blackness (I am going to guess that you know what I mean). So with the B I G screen (set moderately on brightness), my eyes adjust to that level of light and there is little black contrasting border. That just is not possible with virtually any television screen. Of course, apparently for you, you might help yourself by having moderate ambient room light on, to reduce that ultra-contrasty difference between room and screen.
Very best of luck. Problem eyesight can really be a "stinker." I empathize.
