True, there's also that to consider, LCD screens are not the same as those in the 80s. It would be cool if someone were to invest in a serious study. In the meantime we have to remember to take brakes to avoid straining our eyes, regardless of which color the chosen theme is ;)

Thank you!

Light affects your internal clock, affecting your sleep. I believe it's blue/cold light that does this. Changing the color profile on your displays later in the evening to warmer colors helps reduce strain.
