i defenitely switch on an extra light while working on computers as it reduces the strenght of the monitor light on my eyes, it reduces the strain on my eyes and feels more comofrtable

I do the same too but when I'm rendering videos, which takes a long time to do, I turn off the lights and I sleep while the computer is rendering. The extra light does reduce the strain on my eyes.

I don't, I changed my monitor settings to darker. A contractor we used to work with us on programming financial programs for our company always had a gray background when working in programs like for example Excel, when everybody else used white. Everybody wondered about it and I was finally curious enough to ask him. He said that the white background is bad on your eyes and a grayish background is easier if you have to stare at the computer for such a long time each day. He showed me how to change the settings in several programs, and you know, he was right.
