When planning to read eBooks, the Amazon Kindle eReader is the only device we recommend.
The screen is a pure LCD display without any backlighting, reducing eyestrain caused by staring at a light source.
A phone, tablet, monitor, or anything that emits or reflects light can damage eyes, especially when the device's brightness is much higher than the ambient light in the room.
Even the Kindle Paperwhite always emits light, according to Amazon.
So, if you get headaches after hours of staring at a screen, consider a different device or try lowering the brightness, increase the refresh rate (for monitors), reduce glare (light that reflects off the screen), increase the ambient light in the room, and take more breaks.
