  • Is it just me who dislikes the winter update with the change of colors?
    Reshade might help with the color tones. I normally use f.lux for Windows, but I don't know how much it might help. Could be worth trying, though. Source: 3 months ago
  • Create a shortcut for even lower phone brightness
    This is good advice, but I prefer something that automatically dims and reduces blue light for me.

  • Blue-light glasses may not reduce eyestrain from screens, study says

    So sorry you are dealing with this. Not sure if it will help, but I use a program called f.lux (https://justgetflux.com/) for Windows that adjusts the lighting on your screen. It's intended to make the computer light mirror the daylight (filtering the blue light in the evening), but you could set it to filter out the blue light all the time I believe. I hope you find a solution. Source: 10 months ago
