Douglas' suggestion is worth trying, I think. Maybe it's also a combination of too much phone/computer/TV... My eyes get tired when look at anything for too long, even books.

try reducing brightness to 50%.. lower if room is dark.

My eyes seem to have focusing problems when looking at my phone too long, when I look away from it, its like they have trouble swtiching back to a farther focus distance. So I will try Douglas' suggestion of holding it a bit farther back. I'm fine while looking at the phone, but after I put it down my eyes seem tired and don't wanna focus at normal distance again.

There is an eye test app.. pretty cool.."Advanced Eye Charts Free" of course you might want to see a professional as well.

Haha, thanks for the suggestion justJay, though I have to say that I find it ironic that there's an app out there geared towards testing eye problems.. when I'm fairly certain alot of eye problems simply come from staring at screens for too long ;)

Could be a few options here. 1st I'd like to know is your age. If you're 35 years or older it may simply be your body getting older and slower. I notice the focus-distance problem with me & for the moment fault my age, 40.
Another thought may be the whole backlit-LCD versus the E-Ink disaplay debate. I would say the most people (over 50%) experience eye strain from extended reading on backlit LCD screens such as laptops and alot of displays. Do you have an E-Ink screen ereader? If not, perhaps consider buying and using one for long term reading.
Just my 2 cents.
