    had eye surgery. They cannot post until their sight is not as sensitive as they do find the styles irritating; too bright. However, say I wanted to design a style with a color scheme that is very easy on the eyes, what set of colors should I use? TIA.

    Dark colors.

    Blue, black, modified red, etc.

    No bright orange, cyan, or yellow.

    Whatever you find easy on the eyes, the member should find easy on the eyes.

    :yeah:

    Shades of those colors are also good. For example, too much Black might be a bit much... but if you tone it down with Gray (or another lighter tone), it can "ease it up". :tup:

    I agree with Tom and Noles.

    Let me add something I learned the last time I made changes, too, which is that many monitors show colors differently. It looked fine to me, but many members yelled until I changed the contrast a lot more.

    Almost forgot - for members who are colorblind, blue can be a bad choice; it's a hard color for them to see.
