Room is bathed in blue light from computer when f.lux is on
I am using f.lux to mitigate health effects from excessive blue light. But when f.lux is running at night the room still has an obvious blue glow from the screen even on the 1200K/Ember setting. The display itself is red as it should be but the room is blue! So I am wandering how much blue light f.lux is blocking out? The health practitioner I consulted suggested buying a physical blue screen filter. Does f.lux work as effectively as these to block blue light?

@dp100 Hey, been some years since I've visited this forum.
Find the physical brightness setting on your monitor a d drop it to 0%.
Next and I'm not joking: wave your hand in front of the screen on a blank white background. If you see strobing or flickering, (I know quite a bit about backlight technology) set it back all the way to 100 or perhaps 94 would be enough to reasonably eliminate P.W.M. backlight strobing.
If you have flickering / strobing, either sit further away from the screen to reduce light exposure, or push it farther away. There are countless, O.K. at least four, differet tools to magnify or enlarge yhe screen so that you do not need to lean closer into the monitor for comdortable reading.
I presume 99.99999999999999999999% of web users are aware of holding yhe ctrl key and scrolling up / down or +/- key.
Windows magnifier is exceptionally wonderful.
Consider reducing monitor resolution to 1280x720
Windows 7+ DPI settings. 150% is 720p size scaling for a 1080p monitor resolution.
Change the monitor contrast setting and increase it on the 2300 / 1900K settings as it's letting through much less green and blue light. You can increase the contrast just slightly without overexposing any colors.
If something like that was available I'd probably go back to running f.lux and disable Nightshift.
