There's no scientific proof that I'm aware of.

RE: Eye strain

Just thought scientific evidence suggest wearing eye protection when skiing snowboarding, and 1 of the reasons why this is because sun reflect/sun rays refects of bright surfaces (snow which is white) so there for don't that mean having a white border would then reflect sun rays of and them in to your eyes which optimently can cause eye strain?

RE: Eye strain

I don't think you should be looking at an iPad of any colour whilst skiing...

I didn't say that lol I was just making a point that if sun reflect of a white surface/ snow and can damage your eyes then that should apply to any white surface specially if your looking at it constantly in this case the ipad?

RE: Eye strain

The only eyestrain issues I'm aware of are when using the Ipad as an ebook reader.


LED backlit displays are always going to suffer from this to a certain extent - thats one of the reasons why people buy e-readers like Kindle instead (or as well as).
