I've been using a black color scheme in VS ever since Rob released his VibrantInk scheme. Lately however I've been suffering with tired eyes after hours of looking at the screen and decided that I need to make some changes. Beyond the screen flicker rate I also adjusted the scheme as follows
Changed font size to 13pt
Changed plain text background to RBG (454545) and foreground to RGB (235235235)
My aim here was to tone down any glare in the colors to something of a softer tone. The larger font size is also stopping me squinting.
Yeah I likely need an eye test but these changes are working.
