F.lux has already been mentioned, and it’s a good option. If the presence of any blue light is an issue, f.lux has a “Dark Room” mode that will color shift Windows, Mac, Android and iOS all have blue light filters these days. These use more of a “warm color” filter instead of eliminating all blue light. It just makes it less intense.

If you need something with a more drastic change, I would recommend ssOverlay<https://ssoverlay.software.informer.com/> https://ssoverlay.software.informer.com/ which has filters that will tint a monitor in a set color. If a student with Dyslexia likes pink or purple color overlays while reading, this would be a good app for them too!

Subject: [Athen] Low Blue LIght App

Hello, we have a student with post-concussion issues who requires a low blue light app on a computer, I guess to reduce eye strain. Can anyone provide any suggestions? I've never heard of such a thing, but being a blind guy myself I would never have had a need to seek out such an app in the past. Thanks for your suggestions!
