White PIN buttons on lock screen

The lock screen PIN numbers are now blindingly white. There seems to be no option to change them. For those of us with visual issues, or trying to reduce eye strain or even indulge in hobbies such as astronomy or night time photography this is an issue. 
It would be great to have an option to change this setting. Or to have buttons match to appropriate dark mode/ night time settings

Turn off the "reduce transparency and blur" option and that will fix the white pin buttons on lock screen. Took me a bit of time to figure that out as I was having that problem. My guess is that when you turn on this option the lock screen pin was suppose to have a blur on your background when you're entering your pin and when you turn the "Reduce transparency and blur" on, the system no longer blurs the background and to compensate for the lack of contrast the blur brings, it now makes the pin buttons into White or whatever color that helps to differentiate the pin buttons from your background color.

I've not personally experienced this issue however maybe options such as Samsung Goodlock or a launcher such as Nova Prime may help in your case.
