What is the best color of font on an ereader for your eyes?

    Usually you need adequate contrast between the font color and the background to be able to read it, but you don’t want so much contrast that the brightness pops out at you. Black fonts on a white background might be just fine for the eyes. I suspected that dark blue or gray font on a white background might be better for an e-reader/prolonged electronic reading, but I could find no study to support this idea. Bright colors such as red or green may make your eyes strain more to read. The first website below has a little chart of font colors where you can test what is easiest on your eyes. I like the black on light yellow because it seems to have less contrast. On your ereader, I would probably recommend the gray font though to produce similar levels of contrast.
