Things in the world of tablets and computers are changing dramatically. What’s new today is going to become old tomorrow and obsolete after a few days. There has been a discussion over the impact of the tablets’ and computers’ screens on the eyes of users. Let us find out if Kindle has made eye-friendly screen or is it just following the path paved up by other companies.


It is a general perception that watching too much of digital content damages eyes. Well, that is true, but isn’t the latest technology has something to offer in that regard? I’m sure it does and it’s just that we people are not aware of any such thing. Take Kindle for example, Amazon Kindle has been making e-readers for such a long time, and they must have given a thought about the impact of reading books for long hours on the eyes of their customers. Let us find out what solution they had come up with and how effective it was.

Amazon Kindle supports E-ink display that not only easy for eyes but also eases you to stay reading for a longer time period without any strain. To read books online, you just need to have an access to the option named Manage my kindle account on official Amazon link for login purpose.

Why monitors cause eye stress?

Changing levels of brightness is considered to be the prime cause of the eye strain with monitor screens. When the monitor screen color changes, then the size of your pupil also get changes and frequent changes in the size of pupil exhaust the tiny muscles of your eyes and you started feeling heavy on both eyes. You will suffer this problem mainly in darker rooms, where the natural light is negligible and the screen brightness continuously changes.

Another problem you may face while watching contents on a computer screen in glaring. The glaring problem normally occurs, when your screen has positioned opposite to sunlight or to another source of light. The simple way to remove this problem is by changing the direction of your screen or by taking Kindle help and support from experts.

But if you want to work in the former position, then you need to purchase an anti-glare technology computer that doesn’t reflect the sunlight. Kindle comes with anti-glare screen technology. More support related to this technology is also available on www kindle com support link. You can follow this link from your Kindle device.

How kindle screen works?

Kindle uses E-ink display instead of the backlight to lighten the pixels. This helps in spreading the light around the screen properly and forms a clear image. Another point to discuss here is that the contrast level in kindle screen remained constant, so your eye need not adjust the brightness again and again.

Due to the absence of a light source, the glaring affect and reflex action is almost negligible on Kindle device. If your kindle screen keeps on freezing, then this is due to update problem, so you will have to go to Amazon Kindle Update  link and update your Kindle as early as possible. The major constraint of Kindle device is; you cannot read the contents in the dark rooms. To come out of this limitation, you can use reading light in your room.

E-ink display in other devices

All the kindle rivals have also in-built E-ink display in their E-readers. This technology is not yet introduced in computer and other electronic gadgets. The reason being, e-ink display incapability to support color and other screen changes that are required while playing video games. Another drawback of this display is that it is available only in a black and white version not in colored, whereas people prefer color screens.
