Excessive contrast between detail and background is well known to cause fatigue in viewing.
I've discovered the same thing. I use #d7d7cf text on a #1f1f1f background, and this really helps a lot. Its much easier on the eyes than stark white on black.
This is my "lights on" mode. I tend to like to hack on stuff between 11 PM and 2 AM, for which I set my destop and terminal backgrounds to black, and gtk theme, panels, etc. to a sort of medium taupe. Works nice.
