Excessive contrast between detail and background is well known to cause fatigue in viewing. You've re-discovered the same effect.
Also, excessive contrast on dispaly with fine vertical lines require maximum bandwidth from the monitor. Look to see if vertical lines appear the same brightness as horizontal lines...and if they're not the same reduce the contrast or get a monitor with more video bandwidth. Fonts with differing brightnesses with characters look terrible and cause eye fatigue.
