15 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.


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.
