HDMI Monitor/TV

Hi All
Is there such a thing as hdmi monitors/tv that go above 60mhz like 75mhz because i suffer from severe migraine headaches
60mhz makes me have bad head but 75mhz i am ok with. I have a hdmi to vga adapter for my pi zero do a reboot it stops
displaying. So what are my options.
Many Thanks
Andrew
