Is reading on a computer bad for your eyesight?
Is reading on a cell phone, tablet or other reading device easier on the eyes than reading on a computer screen?
I think it is easier to read a full sized pc screen in most cases, I have found that using a program called 'Redshift' (http://jonls.dk/redshift/) definitely helps with those late nights at the computer screen in greatly reducing eye strain.
Probably on smaller devices like a cell phone. I do a lot of reading on a tablet. Its a bit bigger than a paperback book. It's convenient. Agree with Superkev. Laptop is probably better.
Probably all are not great for the eyes and one should take breaks and rest one's eyes from all such devices. I know my eyes are sore about a day at work on the computer. I have to remember to look up and out to the farthest point to give my eyes rest and refocusing away from the screen.
I think it's worse with electronic devices because they're back-lit. It's kind of like focusing on a light bulb for six hours straight. There is a rule out there that is something like 15 minute breaks for every hour of computer use.
