There have been scientific studies that do show that devices with backlighting, or some other lighting system, do fatigue the eyes more, since you're more or less staring directly at a light. eInk does tend to be better since it uses ambient lighting, traditionally. However, any benefit you get from eInk goes out the window if you use the glow function of the Nook Glowlight, or similar readers, since once again you're staring directly at a light source.
