On this point I would disagree. I find reading books with very small 
Hebrew points much more strain on my eyes than reading them on a high 
quality computer screen, on which I can enlarge the characters so that 
they are readable from a convenient reading distance, and set the 
brightness to an adequate level with ease. Of course this requires a 
good quality computer font - but then a printed book depends on good 
print quality as well.

But I realise that this depends very much on the individual and the 
characteristics of his or her eyes.
