    I thought I was being the good guy when I updated her operationing system. BIG mistake.
    Due to corneal damage she cannot get glasses of any sort to help her reading. Those medium blue icons and text are not legible to her. i've already increased the font size, Bold, birghtness,contrast, button shapes, etc. When I tried to revert back to the previous operating system, I was told it cannot be done!
    GRRRRRRR
    Anyone have a work around? I may have to buy her a used Ipad2 to solve this.

    Thanks

    Boy does that increase the contast! Unfortunately it also reviews every photo; eek.
    She is really a technophobe so she wants it like it was. I have to keep trying.
    I guess this is Steve Jobs reaching out from the grave and messing with my life.

    Can you please tell me what you mean by 'those medium blue icons'? I could not quite understand.

    However, you can go to Settings > Accessibility > Increase contrast, and toggle the options there, to see if it helps or not. If it does not, then I will be waiting for your explanation regarding the blue icons.

    Please post back of this helps. Good luck!

    I think maybe the icons that appear after an app is updated.

    A darker wallpaper will help a great deal with this, I had to do this to see them. Apple should really switch to a high-contrast app icon overlay for this.. it would help regardless of the wallpaper being used.

    Totally. Maybe also make the UI of the photo app black. Its painful to the eyes to look at it.

    Why she hates IOS 7.

    photo(2).JPGphoto(3).JPGphoto(4).JPGphoto(20).JPG
    Even with $700 glasses she can no longer recognize these symbols. With IOS 6 she could! The skinny blue lines are a bad joke.
    Who dreamed up these 'improvements'? They should be fired. Also on the Google display we used to be able to close
    other windows without maximizing them first.
    Also, the TINY circle with the X inside to close is now so small and LOW contrast it is almost invisible.
    Androids here we come!

    My eyesight is severely impaired by chronic corneal abrasions and I can see iOS 7 quite well. Sorry you're having so much trouble.

    Well, to get a white on black text in Safari, all you can do is turn private browsing on, but then, all the websites that you browse will NOT be stored in your history.

    I feel sad for you guys, not being able to take full advantage of this wonderful machine...

    All you can do to make the text white on black in Safari ONLY, as I said, is turn private browsing on. Yes, iOS 7 has some misty parts, so they look like that not only to you but to all of us m

    I must say i have trouble reading the text in the Blue bubble in iMessage, I have an eye condition (two actually) and Blue is the worst colour for me even on my Macbook, I hope in the future we get the option to change the colours in iMessage.

    I'm wondering if a coloured screen protector could make a difference here.....

    Anyone ever use one??

    And as Ard has mentioned, a dark wallpaper may make a lot of difference!
