Is there a way to customize or modify After Effects to make it have a white/light interface ?

I know that you can go to Preferences > Appearance, and drag the brightness slider up, but that doesn't change it enough, it is still very dark and straining on my vison and hard to use for long periods of time, if anyone knows some mod or config file change that would allow me to this, it would be much appreciated.

Otherwise, addressing Adobe:

Could you please bring back a light/white interface for After Effects and Premiere Pro, I am a working professional and I have some vision issues and the very dark interface greatly stresses and strains my vision making it impossible for me to work for long periods of time, I know that this isn't a difficult feature to implement given that it was literally the default interface in older versions of after effects, and some versions could go all the way from dark grey to basically white with the brightness slider , the current slider under: Preferences > Appearance > Brightness, is basically useless given how little of a difference it makes, please bring back a feature that was essential for users like myself to use the software comfortably, even Photoshop and adobe bridge allow you to go to: Preferences > Interface > Appearance > Color Theme, and give you a wider range of options, all the way to white, please implement this into After Effects and Premiere Pro.

You will note that the background for this web page is  WHITE.  To make things easy to see. 

I agree with you, but I don't think the light is on in Adobe's refrigerator.

I agree with this request. Dark interface turns our screen almost into a mirror for glare.
A brighter interface would let us motion designers and video editors work in more "normal" office environments and sometimes we have to share those environments with other professionals. 
Not all of us like to work in dark caves and wear dark clothes. If I wear a white t-shirt I can see myself reflecting in my After Effects timeline. 
Adobe please let us be able to open the blinds 🙂
