Sunglasses in a dark room is overdoing it. Just a bit. :)

Mouse is fine for "just reading", which I spend a fair amount of my time
doing. And, yeah, "dark" browser themes with light pieces sticking out
are even more painful.

IME, the main point is to keep contrast level more or less
unchanging. Eyes adapt to the lighting level relatively easily.

Lowering the monitor brightness level a bit never hurts, though.

you have a *lower* pain threshold than Eli, which was his point.
