    Hello,actually there is some debate about whether backlit or LCD screens are bad for vision and cause eye strain over time.And there are also some debates that backlit LCD screens cause more eye strain than other screens, such as E Ink. Some people say that backlit screens give them a headache and a eyestrain, but others can use them for hours without issue. In my opinion, it depends the habits of eye using. Just don't always stick your eyes on the screen for a long time and take a break to rest your eyes when they are uncomfortable and tired.What's more, dimming your screen can help reduce impact on your vision. It’s very possible that not the backlight that hurts your eyes but the fact that you aren't moving your eyes. So you just keep a good habit of using eyes while read on the backlit screen, it will cause little damage to your eyes and that should be OK.
