The latest kindle now has an inbuilt light with an e-ink display so its great for reading in any lighting conditions and easy on the eye.(Original post by 22KT22)
I don't have both however my housemate does so i have experienced both. Tablets like PCs are generally backlit which is what causes the eye strain where as a kindle using E-Ink and so the strain is similar to reading a book. I struggle to read books on my Ipod which is essentially a smaller Ipad as i strain my eyes if you're purely wanting an E-reader get a Kindle, if you want to do other stuff but not as much reading get a tablet.

I recently bought a Kobo Touch for £70, which I chose over a Kindle as with the Kobo you can borrow e-books from your local library (ePub format). I think the Kobo has encouraged me to read more than I did with ordinary books!
