Spending Too Much Time On Your Smartphone? Protect your eyes with these apps

Spending Too Much Time On Your Smartphone?  Protect your eyes with these apps 1
Some years ago, spend a lot of time on a computer and you’re named a
tech geek! The situation is entirely different today. Most of us rely on
computers, smartphones, and other digital tools at our places of work.

And in addition to being a handy tool when checking email and
reading something important online, there’s also the social media
craze and tons of interesting content on sites such as YouTube. What
that means is that the average person spends a lot of time looking at
a smartphone screen daily. To make sure that your eyes aren’t
harmed, below are some useful apps.

Bluelight Filter for Eye Care

This is perhaps the most popular Android eye care app. Bluelight
offers a wide range of different filter colors, several built-in modes
(e.g. refresh mode, night mode, etc) for keeping your eyes safe, and
customizable color filter configurations. It doesn’t dim your screen but
rather reduces blue light that can cause eye strain. This helps you feel
more relaxed and comfortable when using your Android smartphone.
The app is designed to automatically activate at sunset and deactivate
at sunrise, and can be simply turned one with just one tap.

Twilight
This is another great app that you can leverage to adjust the
brightness of your Android smartphone. Twilight adjusts the color
temperature over the course of the day so that it reduces harsh lights
at different times. The app automatically adjusts the light filter based
on the sunset and sunrise times in your location. It makes night
reading especially pleasing. And if you want to get a preview of what
different filters look like, there’s a quick time-lapse feature just for
that.

EasyEyes Free
This android eye care app comes in handy especially when the lowest
brightness setting on your smartphone is still too bright. EasyEyes
changes the color temperature and activates a filter that reduces eye
strain when looking at your phone at night. Low and natural light
sources help the body produce more melatonin, a chemical that
contributes to better sleep. This app will work on any Android device
and cover every part of the smartphone’s screen. It gives more fine-
tuned control over the brightness of your Android system. More so,
you can rely on the automatic scheduler to specify which times the
app should do its job each night.

EyeFilter – Bluelight
EyeFilter does just what it does – protects your eyes from bluelight
exposure, which causes amblyopia and insomnia. The app is a great
tool if you’re looking to relieve eye strain and protect your visual
acuity. EyeFilter doesn’t drain your smartphone battery and comes
with a variety of settings and themes that you can easily activate. You
get at least 5 filters for optimal eyesight, and an option to adjust the
opacity of your screen so others can’t peep.

Your eyes are more important than anything you are doing on your
smartphone. It’s important to take the necessary steps to keep them
safe. These apps have no bugs and are quite reliable and simple to
use.
