I was always afraid of the contrast. I have some trouble reading when the contrast is not that good. Like sometimes, in comics books, when the ballon is dark red and the text is written in black. This I can't read most of the times unless the ambient light is very good. Not sure if it's because my astigatism that is high or because I stay in front of a computer screen all day or just because I'm not 20 anymore
