    I really like the idea of dark mode, but find my eyes hurting a bit after just a few minutes of use. Even when using a solid white desktop picture. For some reason I can look at a black desktop all day long, but not black UI windows. Odd.

    Any tips on making it easier on my eyes? Are there others who feel my pain?

    I like dark mode much better with "Reduce Transparency" on.

    took me about a week to get used to it, now i won't turn it off. but... if it's not working for you... don't use it. or go into system preferences>accessibility, and explore the display options there, with dark mode 'on'....

    It has been said before, and it still stands true: human eye finds dark text on light background much easier to read.


    I like the contrast that you get with the dark mode, but I cannot stand it for too long.
