To be honest no I can't tell the difference however my eyes aren't the
greatest either. Possibly if I tried a different Gnome theme I'd be
able to.

That I'm not sure of however the question comes to mind that why did
this only start when I upgraded from 16.04.5LTS to 18.04.1LTS? In fact
it started as soon as I booted into the new version. 

Do you see anything in the ~/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log - that could be the cause?
