White backlit eye strain

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello, do white LED backlit cause more eye strain than blue and/or red LED backlit? According to my limited physics knowledge, white LEDs should cause as much eye strain as blue LEDs, which is significantly more than red LEDs.

To prevent the question why I need this, I'm looking into getting Ducky Shine with white LEDs, as there's no blue-switch red-LED boards in stock...

I think you are confusing night blindness with eyestrain. I've always heard that a low white led would be the best to eliminate eye strain.

Well different colors cause different amount of eye strain. It's biophysics, I guess. smile.gif

The only strain I've had with anything is from my monitor. Have had just about every color LED keyboard and no problems. Although that might be because I rarely look at my keyboard to do any sort of typing.
