Not for me. I had an Iphone, have a android phone now. Have had the iPad (1) and now have the iPad (3) and a Nexus 7.

Machine size doesn't make a difference, since I can set the fonts to all the same basic size on all of them.

I've worn glasses since I was 12, and am 50 now. It's no fun, but I keep up with my perscription and even pay extra to have computer glasses for that mid-range to make reading on my large monitors easier.

But even then, it all comes down to looking straight into a light source. Size of the screen, font size and brightness don't make a difference between them. I still get eye strain from looking straight into a light source for more than a certain period of time.

Strain I've never once gotten on an eInk machine. And I read on those for hours at a time.
