F.lux App

Computer vision syndrome is a real thing. The side effects to all of us becoming addicted to screens over the past decade is possible eye strain and sleep issues. Now, it would be nice to say, “Just don’t look at a screen after like 5pm” but the reality is we all have jobs/school and things we need to care of at night which requires it.


The simplest solution is to make sure you have F.Lux installed on every one of your computers. It’s free and it works seamlessly. It automatically adjusts your computer’s display to adapt to the time of the day: warm at night and like sunlight during the day. This minimizes potential disruptions to your sleep patterns. If your eyes are starting at what looks like the sun late at night, it makes sense why your body might think it should remain awake.  Give it a try and let us know what you think!
