Computer Screen Protector For Eyes

Computers have penetrated into every aspect of our lives. Whether in the workplace, at home, or at school, the use of computers is now almost mandatory, and to a certain extent, for many of us, watching the screen is almost inevitable.

eye pain

Computer Related Health Problems

Now apparent that prolonged use can lead to a series of computer vision-related problems, collectively known as computer vision syndrome (CVS) or digital eye fatigue. In fact, just a day spent on the computer for more than two hours, you will have a 90% chance of developing computer vision syndrome (CVS).

Most of us have experienced at least some of the symptoms of CVS. These symptoms include eyestrain, headaches, dry eyes, blurred vision, neck pain. 

In addition to causing CVS, the computer is a notorious blue light emitter, Blu-ray also involves many other health problems. The excessive blue light on the screen can cause eye damage and may play a role in the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). It also suppresses sleep and can cause insomnia and disturb your circadian rhythm. If we use a mobile phone or computer before going to bed, it is more likely to cause insomnia.

Therefore, protecting your eyes is vital whenever you use a computer, and you can use a computer screen protector to protect your eyes.

What are computer screen protectors?

The computer screen protectors can reduce blue light, glare and adjust the screen brightness to protect our eyes from electronic screens. They can be physical devices or software.

The glare of reflection on the computer screen is the one cause of eye strain. The reflection on the computer screen will constantly distract your attention, forcing you to make extra efforts to concentrate and ultimately leading to eye strain.

You can use a high-end anti-glare computer screen to reduce the glare of your computer monitor. The anti-glare filter is available in two frame designs – flat or wrap. The frame you choose depends on your display style and personal preference, and with either of them, you can virtually eliminate most of the glare that is reflected from the screen to your eyes.

Advantages:  It can effectively reduce glare and Ultraviolet rays.


Disadvantages:  Installation is difficult, it is easy to leave annoying dust and bubbles in the installation process, and does not have the effect of filtering blue light.

Blue Light Filter Windows 7

Are you looking for a blue light filter for Windows 7?

Then you have come to the right place. Next, I will show you how to reduce blue light on Windows 7 in a simpler way.

Blue light filter for Windows 7

 

CareUEyes is a Windows 7 blue light filter, which helps prevent eye fatigue, relieve eye pain and vision problems. It filters blue light by adjusting the color temperature, so you can freely control the filter intensity of blue light. The lower the color temperature, the less blue light.

CareUEyes is similar to the Night light on Windows 10 / Windows 11. You can use it as windows 7 Night light, but it is definitely better than the Night light.

It has eight preset modes, suitable for eight different usage scenarios. Appropriate color temperature is preset for each, but you can also adjust the color temperature according to your needs.

Three ways to filter blue light

1. Drag or click the color temperature slider on the interface. Drag to the left to decrease the color temperature(reduce the blue light), and to the right to increase the color temperature (increase the blue light).

2. Using hotkeys

3. Select the color temperature in the tray right-click menu

Lightweight and easy-to-use blue light filter

 

CareUEyes can easily help you achieve intelligent blue light filter adjustment. Some software uses overlay translucent windows to filter blue light, but CareUEyes directly controls the display’s RGB value, which ensures compatibility with other software. You can also set the CareUEyes blue light filter adjustment feature to be disabled when a special program is running (for example, while running photoshop, to restore real color).

Unlike other blue light filter software on windows 7, CareUEyes has higher performance. It only needs 5M of memory at runtime, and it does not consume too much CPU time. And the package of CareUEyes is only 2M. I believe this is your best choice.

Sunrise and sunset feature

Although blue light is harmful to the eyes, proper blue light irradiation is beneficial to people during the day. Blue light can keep people awake and have the energy to finish work or study. Therefore, if you are not a person with extremely sensitive eyes, you only need to filter a small part of the blue light during the day and restore the light of the computer screen to light similar to sunlight.

But at night, blue light becomes very harmful, you need to filter more blue light to prevent sleep from being disturbed by blue light. Excessive exposure to blue light at night will cause sleep problems. Because blue light inhibits the production of melatonin in the body. Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland. It helps your body know when to sleep and wake up. (External Factors that Influence Sleep)

According to people’s different needs for blue light day and night, CareUEyes provides sunrise and sunset feature. Compared with the sunrise and sunset, the color temperature and brightness after sunset are lower.

You only need to turn on the sunrise and sunset functions, CareUEyes will automatically help you adjust the color temperature and brightness at sunrise and sunset.

In addition to filtering blue light, more ways to protect your eyes


1. Follow the “20-20-20” principle

Every time you watch the screen for 20 minutes, raise your eyes and look at a place 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds.

However, many people often forget to take a break due to their busy schedules. CareUEyes can remind you to take a break regularly. It is not a simple timer, it is far more intelligent than you think.

CareUEyes can intelligently analyze the time you actually use the computer, and when you actually work on the computer for the predetermined time, it will remind you to take a break.

2. Set the appropriate brightness for the screen

Don’t make your screen too bright, because the brighter the screen, the more blue light will be emitted, and too bright screen light is also a direct stimulus to the eyes and easily leads to eye fatigue.

Use CareUEyes to easily adjust the screen brightness. You can adjust the brightness in the program interface or use the hotkeys to adjust.

Night mode for PC

Are you looking for a night mode for PC? I will show you how to turn on night mode on PC.

What is a night mode for PC?

Night mode is a computer setting that allows us to use the computer more comfortably at night. Night mode reduces eye strain and promotes sleep. These settings include filtering blue light, dimming the screen, and displaying a dark theme.

Many people call the night light feature on Windows 10 as night mode, which can reduce blue light, reduce eye strain, and promote sleep.

Some people call the dark mode as night mode. The dark mode is a setting provided by Windows that allows you to switch between light and dark themes. When you turn on dark mode in Windows, you will see a dark-themed user interface.

The default setting for most applications is the light mode, which means that dark text is displayed on a light background. The dark mode displays white text on a black background.

The purpose of the dark mode is to reduce the light emitted by the device screen while maintaining the minimum color contrast required for readability. Dark mode can minimize glare to reduce eye strain and make reading easier and more comfortable. If you plan to read e-books or edit documents on your computer, you can switch to night mode to see if it suits you better.

Some people call dimming the screen as night mode. At night, we need to dim the screen brightness, otherwise, the bright screen will cause eye irritation.

How to enable night mode?

On Windows 10, to enable Windows Night Light, select Settings> System> Display> Night Light.

On Windows 10, to enable dark mode, select Settings> Personalization> Color, then open the “Select color” drop-down menu and select light, dark, or custom.

The default Windows mode will change the background color of the taskbar, start menu, and calendar. The default app mode changes the background color of built-in applications (such as Explorer) and applications you get from the Windows Store.

However, not all applications support dark mode, and many do not. For example, Windows Notepad does not support dark mode. Edge browser can only change the background color of the title bar, toolbar, and menu, but the content of the web page cannot be changed.

Use a night mode app to turn on night mode

CareUEyes is designed for people who like dark screens and want to protect their eyes. It integrates blue light filtering, brightness adjustment, and dark theme functions, and is more powerful and perfect than Windows night mode.

CareUEyes supports all versions of Windows, including Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 and Windows 11. It can dim all screens and monitors; LCD, TFT and LED backlit types. And it supports adjusting the extended screen, if you have two or more extended screens, it can also be adjusted together.

Unlike other night modes for pc, CareUEyes has higher performance. It only needs 5M of memory at run time, requires less CPU time. And the package of CareUEyes is only 2M. I believe this is your best choice.

If you need to edit documents at night, then CareUEyes’ editing mode is perfect for you. Because it can invert the colors so that white becomes black and black becomes white. So it is perfect for editing documents or for programmers to use when programming at night.

Because most applications have light themes by default, they will become black themes after color inversion. Different from the dark mode that comes with Windows, the editing mode of CareUEyes is suitable for all applications, and it can reverse the background color of all applications.

Different from the general dark theme, the dark theme of CareUEyes is not pure black, but dark gray. Compared with pure black background and white, the gray background can create a more comfortable contrast experience under the premise of ensuring sufficient text readability and truly reducing the user’s visual fatigue.

Yellow screen keep your eyes healthy

Yellow screen is better for eyes

The yellow screen can effectively reduce the blue light emitted by the screen, relieve eye fatigue, and even help you fall asleep better at night.

If you haven’t heard the dangers of blue light, you may not like a yellow screen.

What is Blue light?

Blue light is light with relatively high energy with a wavelength between 400nm and 480nm. It has a shorter wavelength and is part of the visible spectrum.

Why is blue light bad?

blue light cause eyestarin

Blue light can penetrate the lens directly to our retina, causing the atrophy or even death of retinal pigment epithelial cells. The death of light-sensitive cells will result in decreased vision or even complete loss of vision. This damage is irreversible.

Blue light can also cause age-related macular degeneration, which can lead to permanent vision loss.

The lens of the human eye will absorb part of the blue light and gradually become cloudy to form cataracts, and most of the blue light will penetrate the lens, especially children’s lenses are clearer and cannot effectively resist the blue light, which is more likely to cause macular degeneration and cataracts.

Due to the short wavelength of blue light, the focus point does not fall on the center of the retina, but a little bit forward from the retina. To see clearly, the eyeballs will be in a state of tension for a long time, causing visual fatigue. You may experience symptoms such as eye fatigue, headache, blurred vision, dry eyes, neck and shoulder pain.

Blue light inhibits the production of melatonin in the body. Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland, which helps your body know when to sleep and wake up. Usually, at night, your body produces more melatonin. Once the sun starts to go down, the level of melatonin secretion starts to rise. This indicates that the body is ready to fall asleep. When the sun rises, the level of melatonin secretion starts to decrease and the body gradually began to wake up. Excessive exposure to blue light at night and insufficient melatonin secretion in the human body will keep people awake and unable to fall asleep, which causes the problem of insomnia.

 

Why can the yellow screen reduce the blue light emitted by the screen?

You need to know the concept of color temperature first. The concept of color temperature is based on an imaginary absolute black body, which emits different colors of light when heated to different temperatures, and its objects appear in different colors. Just like when an iron block is heated, the iron block first turns red, then yellow, and finally white. When heated to a certain temperature, the spectral component of the light emitted by the black body is called the color temperature at this temperature, and the unit of measurement is “K” (Kelvin).

If the light emitted by a light source has the same spectral components as the light emitted by a black body at a certain temperature, it is called a certain K color temperature.

For example, some common light sources and related parameters of color temperature: tungsten lamp 2700K; summer noon sun 5500K; cloudy 6500-7500K; candlelight 2000K and so on.

colour-temperature

 

The color temperature calibrated by this method is exactly the opposite of what the general public thinks of “warm” and “cold”. For example, people usually feel red, orange, and yellow are warmer, white and blue are colder, but in fact, red has the lowest color temperature, and then gradually increases are orange, yellow, white, blue, and blue is the highest color temperature.

A light source with a high color temperature appears blue and contains more blue light. A light source with a low color temperature appears reddish-yellow and contains less blue light.

The color temperature of the screen only indicates the spectral components of the light source, not the luminous intensity (the brightness of the screen indicates the luminous intensity of the screen).

Therefore, if we want to reduce the total amount of blue light emitted by the screen, one way is to reduce the blue light component in the spectrum, that is, lower the color temperature and adjust the screen to a yellowish tint. Another method is to reduce the luminous intensity of the screen, that is, to dim the brightness of the screen.

 

Are the color temperature and brightness as low as possible?

 

Although reducing the color temperature and brightness of the screen can help us reduce the harmful blue light, the color temperature and brightness of the screen are not as low as possible. Because the color temperature is too low, the screen will turn red, which will make the screen difficult to see. Too low screen brightness will also make the screen difficult to see, increasing eye fatigue. We need to keep the color temperature and brightness of the screen within an appropriate range.

What are the appropriate color temperature and brightness?

CareUEyes has the function of adjusting the color temperature and the screen brightness. It designs eight preset modes according to the most commonly used scenes in people’s daily life. The eight preset modes are health, games, movies, office, editing, reading, customization, and pause modes.  They have preset suitable color temperature and brightness so that you can quickly find the color temperature and brightness that suit you.

8 modes

 

The healthy mode has the lowest color temperature among all modes, and the screen looks slightly yellow. Your eyes may not adapt well at first, but soon you will find that such a screen looks softer, your eyes will no longer be tingling, dry, and tired.

Although blue light is harmful to the eyes, proper blue light irradiation is beneficial to people during the day. Blue light can keep people awake and have the energy to finish work or study. Therefore, if you are not a person with extremely sensitive eyes, you only need to filter a small part of the blue light during the day and restore the light of the computer screen to light similar to daylight.

But at night, blue light becomes very harmful, you need to filter more blue light to prevent sleep from being disturbed by blue light.

According to people’s different needs for blue light day and night, CareUEyes provides sunrise and sunset functions. Compared with the sunrise and sunset, the color temperature and brightness after sunset are lower.

You only need to turn on the sunrise and sunset function, CareUEyes will automatically help you change the color temperature and brightness at sunrise and sunset.

blue light filter for windows 11

Studies have shown that computer screens emit blue light that is harmful to health. People who must work long hours on computer screens experience eye strain and headaches. People who are overexposed to blue light at night time also experience circadian rhythm disruptions and difficulty sleeping.

Next, I will show you how to enable blue light filtering in Windows 11. Includes the night light feature that is incorporated in Windows 11 and a more perfect alternative app: CareUEyes.

Windows 11 night light: Blue  light filter for Windows 11

A feature called night light has been incorporated in the newer Windows 11 release, designed to reduce the blue light emitted from the screen, reduce eye strain, and maintain normal sleep patterns. Night light mode reduces blue light by adjusting the color temperature to reduce blue light and enhance redder colors, and the screen becomes warmer.

Redder and warmer lights are less harmful to the eyes, and people who use night Light mode tend to have more regular sleep cycles than those who do not use the feature. You can adjust the night light to your liking, and you can schedule it to turn on and turn off at certain times.

How to enable the night light feature

To enable the blue light filter in Windows 11, you need to perform the following steps:
1. Click on the Windows icon on the taskbar. Then select the Settings cog. (You can also open the Settings app using the shortcut keys: Win + I)

2. When Windows Settings appears on the screen, click on the System option.

 

3. Click on the “Display” option.

 

4. Click on the night light settings.

5. Toggle the night light switch to On.

 

6. By sliding,  you can adjust the color temperature as per your requirement.

Schedule night light

7. If you want to schedule the night light to turn on and off automatically at specific times, toggle the Schedule night light switch to On and click on the Set hours button.

 

8. Modify the night light turn on and turn off time as per your requirement.

9. If you need to turn on and off the night light automatically according to the local sunset and sunrise time, toggle the Schedule night light switch to On and click on the Sunset to sunrise button.

 

Disadvantages of the night light mode

1. The first disadvantage of Windows 11 night light mode is that it changes color accuracy. If you are using the night light feature for the first time, your eyes may not get used to it, but after a while, your eyes will slowly get used to it. However, when you are editing videos or photos with Windows, you may need to turn off the night light to maintain a high level of color accuracy. But it is a bit of a hassle to manually turn on and off the night light frequently.

2. The second disadvantage of Windows 11 nightlight mode is that you can only set one color temperature mode. But people may need different color temperatures in different scenarios, for example, people can accept lower color temperature when dealing with emails or reading web pages, but usually don’t want the color of the screen to be affected too much when playing games or watching movies, so it will be easier to use if nightlight can set multiple color temperature modes.

3. The third disadvantage of Windows 11 nightlight mode is that it does not support hotkeys to adjust color temperature. According to the usual steps, you need to go through six steps to open the color temperature adjustment.

4. The fourth disadvantage of Windows 11 night light mode is that it can not set different color temperatures for day and night, you need to manually adjust the color temperature again at sunset and sunrise.

For people who just want to improve their sleep, they can turn on the night light only after sunset, but for people who want to reduce blue light to protect their eyes, they also need to turn on the night light feature during the day, but usually, they don’t need to filter as much blue light during the day as they do at night, so it’s necessary to set different color temperature for day and night.

A more perfect third-party alternative

If you want to overcome the above disadvantages of Windows 11 night light, you can install a third-party software called CareUEyes. CareUEyes filters blue light by adjusting the color temperature just like Windows 11 night light, but it not only supports Windows 11 but also supports installation on XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

Blue light filter Windows 10

Studies have shown that computer screens emit blue light that is harmful to health. People who must work long hours on computer screens experience eye strain and headaches. People who are overexposed to blue light at night time also experience circadian rhythm disruptions and difficulty sleeping.

Next, I will show you how to enable blue light filtering in Windows 10. Includes the night light feature that is incorporated in Windows 10 and a more perfect alternative app: CareUEyes.

Windows 10 night light: Blue  light filter for Windows 10

A feature called night light has been incorporated in the newer Windows 10 release, designed to reduce the blue light emitted from the screen, reduce eye strain, and maintain normal sleep patterns. Night light mode reduces blue light by adjusting the color temperature to reduce blue light and enhance redder colors, and the screen becomes warmer.

Redder and warmer lights are less harmful to the eyes, and people who use night Light mode tend to have more regular sleep cycles than those who do not use the feature. You can adjust the night light to your liking, and you can schedule it to turn on and turn off at certain times.

How to enable the night light feature

To enable the blue light filter in Windows 10, you need to perform the following steps:
1. From the Start menu, click on the Settings button.

Disadvantages of the night light mode

1. The first disadvantage of Windows 10 night light mode is that it changes color accuracy. If you are using the night light feature for the first time, your eyes may not get used to it, but after a while, your eyes will slowly get used to it. However, when you are editing videos or photos with Windows, you may need to turn off the night light to maintain a high level of color accuracy. But it is a bit of a hassle to manually turn on and off the night light frequently.

2. The second disadvantage of Windows 10 nightlight mode is that you can only set one color temperature mode. But people may need different color temperatures in different scenarios, for example, people can accept lower color temperature when dealing with emails or reading web pages, but usually don’t want the color of the screen to be affected too much when playing games or watching movies, so it will be easier to use if nightlight can set multiple color temperature modes.

3. The third disadvantage of Windows 10 nightlight mode is that it does not support hotkeys to adjust color temperature. According to the usual steps, you need to go through six steps to open the color temperature adjustment.

4. The fourth disadvantage of Windows 10 night light mode is that it can not set different color temperatures for day and night, you need to manually adjust the color temperature again at sunset and sunrise.

For people who just want to improve their sleep, they can turn on the night light only after sunset, but for people who want to reduce blue light to protect their eyes, they also need to turn on the night light feature during the day, but usually, they don’t need to filter as much blue light during the day as they do at night, so it’s necessary to set different color temperature for day and night.

A more perfect third-party alternative

If you want to overcome the above disadvantages of Windows 10 night light, you can install a third-party software called CareUEyes. CareUEyes filters blue light by adjusting the color temperature just like Windows 10 night light, but it not only supports Windows 10 but also supports installation on XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8.
