Looking at a bright screen all day can strain your eyes, and if you’re looking at it after dark, the bluish light can even screw with your sleep schedule, making you stay up later. F.lux lets you give your eyes a break by adjusting the color temperature of the screen based on the time of day. After sunset, the screen gets warmer and softer, so your eyes don’t have to work as hard. You can disable it for color-sensitive work. Once you try it, you’ll never go back.
How it works:
During the day, computer screens look good—they’re designed to look like the sun. But, at 9PM, 10PM, or 3AM, you probably shouldn’t be looking at the sun.
F.lux fixes this by making the color of your computer’s display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.
It’s even possible that you’re staying up too late because of your computer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep better, or you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better.
Download f.lux and start protecting your eyes the way they deserve it.
