It's not for me. And I read many hours on LCD and on E-Ink (sometimes with glassess, sometimes with contact lenses, sometimes without anything). The difference in eye strain is huge between those two for me. I have very decent LCD and I'm very careful to set proper contrast and brightness of the screen depending on the lighting. I have to admit though that I didn't test LCD with LED backlit - maybe those are better (I'll probably try one day, because I want to buy a tablet).
Also: I'm nearsighted and don't even have 30 years on my back.
