I love to read.
I devote almost all my free time to this activity.
I like blogs about life, useful tips.
I also love creepypasta (mysticism, urban legends).
For the last five years, I have received the lion's share of everything I read from the screen of a mobile device.
I used to have a Nokia 6303 classic, then a Samsung Galaxy S II, and now an LG G Pro Lite.
And my eyesight has deteriorated quite noticeably.
I felt a critical milestone in the winter of 2016. In the morning I could not focus my eyes properly. During the day, objects were blurry and faded. License plates of cars, shop signs from a 40-meter distance - I could no longer make out. It is typical that I spend almost the entire working day, from 8 am to 8 pm, behind the screen of a stationary computer.
Initially, seriously frightened, he decided to take drastic measures. Namely: do not read before going to bed (about an hour of reading in bed, in the dark). But he could not stand it, because the insipid office routine full of officialdom, so put pressure on the brain, and creepypasta acted as such a spicy seasoning that adds brightness to life.
And just recently, I found a couple of tricks that significantly reduce eye strain when reading from mobile devices.
Software for android
"UC Browser - UC Browser" - in my opinion, the only android browser that has a quite intelligible "Night" mode.
The button for switching to this mode is located in the settings panel, on the left.
Before turning on the mode:
After turning on the mode:
Frankly, I have been using this feature for quite a long time, but there is still a load on the eyes, with all the apparent darkness. Apparently, because of the unnatural blue color emitted by smartphone screens. At your leisure, you can google and be seriously upset by the statements of scientists on this matter.
"Blue Light Filter"
In order to attenuate the cold blue radiation, a quite effective filter is offered for free on the play.google counter:
I've been using it for a couple of weeks, but I'm quite happy with it. The filter provides a whole spectrum of "warm" light variations. In addition, this application is not sophisticated, I think that everyone will quickly figure it out, pleasantly surprised by its capabilities.
By the way, something similar has been successfully implemented in the "Opera mini" browser, but I personally do not use it, since "Opera" in my opinion is not as fast as Chrome or UC.
