I am on MS a lot, and at school I use Microsoft word once in a while, It made me think of something, does color matter on eyes?

I find that white text on a black backgound is easier on my eyes, while black text on white background makes my eyes feel more drowsy. How about you?

i think it's because when you have a black background that it just absorbs all the colours, but with a white background it all bounces back to your eyes and so thw rods and cones get more of a work out, because sometimes when you have a 2 hour lesson in computer studies typeing on word then u just want to do something else.

White writing on a black background is actually easier for the eyes to distinguish, so I vote for this. Besides, I don't find myself leaning forward to read a word every now and then with this setup . The again, this could relate to me needing glasses

Black text on a white background for me, no particular reason, it is just easier. Although, not sure how to classify easier in this case, not that I have problems with reading white on black lol

My girlfriend uses a blue background when using Word...it's quite nice. I prefer white text on a darker background (not nesessarily black) 'cause it's not as "bright"

Isn't that default? If its the newest version you can change the color by going to "More commands" < Popular < Colors.

You are not the first to ask this, some scientists made a study and found that the easiest writing to read is black writing on yellow background (yellow-pages style)

of course light background is a thousand times more harmful than dark background,but if we talk about traditional books,or low luminosity devices(E-book readers),then black text is better.

White Text on Black background.
For some reason when its opposite its sort of blends into the background aura.

White text of black background definitely gets my vote.

It's so much more comfortable for my eyes. I usually get headache after several hours of writing on a white background - it's just too "screaming" tbh.

I gotta agree that the white text on the black background is better, it doesn't hurt my eyes after some time, as the opposite way does.
