Top 5 Blue Light filter apps for Android for eye care

It has been concluded from multiple types of research conducted across the globe that an average smartphone user uses 3-4 hours of surfing per day. Now that’s almost close to half the amount of our sleep time. We hardly wonder where times fly while browsing through the small screens, thanks to the numerous social media biggies.

Usually, while using the screens, or maybe at the end of the day, we do sometimes complain of eye stress. This is primarily due to the blue light being radiated from those mini-screens. The wavelength of this blue light is similar to the sunlight at noon!!!

What is Blue Light and how it affects our eyes

It’s part of a natural light spectrum, which disturbs the circadian rhythm and causes eye stress, headache, migraine, sleeplessness, and prolonged vision issues.  According to the research, exposure to blue light results in serious threats to overall eye health and suppresses the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that influences circadian rhythms.

Harmful effects of using a smartphone without blue light filter are:

  • Eye strain, tired eyes and bad eye health
  • Headaches and migraine pain
  • Insomnia sleeplessness
  • Lack of quality sleep

High-end devices from Samsung have started including a dedicated feature called Blue light filter. Don’t worry in case your phone doesn’t have this feature. Numerous apps from Google Play Store can help you out in blocking those harmful rays. Once the blue light filter is applied the screen turns to a warmer, yellowish color, which reduces the negative impact of screens rays and thus helps in improving the sleep quality.
