So if you want your eyes safe and want to enjoy healthy computing, then just a mere software is what all you need.
F.lux, adjust the color of the computer`s display according to the time of the day by dimming the monitor display in the evening. In the day time our computer screen is too bright adjusting the brightness and color with the day time, but at night, it`s not good for our eyes. So to adjust the monitor brightness and color, F.lux reduced the brightness and color of the monitor screen according to the night, which best suites our eyes. F.lux has a preview option which can be used to get an idea of what those changes will look like over the course of the day.
