I actually use both but the only thing that's worked consistently for hours and hours editing text/code on a machine is the glasses

Sadly I've found no way around that. Some of Adobe's software (and a few freeware programs like Atom, Notepad++, Blender) have taken a mostly gray/black UI approach. Other than that, I don't know.

Thanks webfork, I'll buy a computer glass.

Do you use both at the same time? would that make the screen more yellow?

How do you manage when using Adobe software for color accuracy? do you turn it off temporarily?

Yes but you can control some of the color settings and I have them on the very minimal setting. The idea with running the program in addition to the glasses is focused on gradually losing the blue color spectrum over the course of a day so you can sleep better at night.

Yep. Most programs in this category have an easy-disable feature.

@starstuff - Sorry for the late response! Never tried computer glasses. To me, SunsetScreen is enough, but I'm guessing computer glasses would do better with blue light glare.
is it stealth? ;)
