The basic rule of setting screen brightness is: the screen brightness is best adjusted to be similar to the brightness of the environment, the brighter the environment, the brighter the screen should be. When the surrounding light is very bright, you need to increase the brightness so that you can see the screen clearly. When you are in a dark environment, you need to darken the screen to avoid hurting your eyes.
If the screen brightness is not suitable, it will cause eye fatigue and vision problems. However, the surrounding lighting conditions are constantly changing, and we need to adjust the screen brightness frequently.
If you can’t control the brightness of Windows 7, it will not only hurt your eyes, but also affect your sleep.
Light is one of the most important external factors that can affect sleep. It does so both directly, by making it difficult for people to fall asleep, and indirectly, by influencing the timing of our internal clock and thereby affecting our preferred time to sleep.(External Factors that Influence Sleep)
