The long time we spend in front of a screen affects our eyesight, with the default settings that our devices often offer overwhelming with their intensity. That is why a software solution like Iris is very useful if you want to adjust the color, as well as its temperature and brightness to ensure that there is no room for visual fatigue.
You can find the optimal settings for your computer screen
First of all, you should know that the program is packaged in an elegant user interface that, first of all, offers you a number of basic configuration options. To be more specific, the main window allows you to select between three different modes, namely, automatic, manual and paused.
Automatic mode reacts according to your local time and is able to adjust your screen settings so that it is easier to see. During the day, the screen will show mainly bright and blue light, while the calibration for the night will reduce the overall intensity, and the color will change from yellow to red.
It includes several modes and types that modify the brightness and color temperature.
It is precisely this last configuration on which the manual mode is based, which allows you to take full advantage of your computer screen, especially if there is no direct light and the need for high contrast is minimal.
As for the paused mode, it obviously stops all color changes implemented by the program, with the possibility of returning to the calibration set at any later time.
It is also worth mentioning that the application allows you to combine these three modes with any of the so-called types, which are nothing more than themed preset values that you can use to protect your eyes. Among its options, you will find health, sleep, reading, programming, biohacker, film and overlay, each with its own particularities that you must try.
It also provides you with a series of advanced settings
However, for experienced users with very particular preferences, the beauty of the program lies in the benefits included in the "Advanced settings" section. Here you can adjust the temperature and color brightness, change the location, manage multiple monitor settings, set a timer and more.
This is also where you should go to ensure that the application does not interfere with your workflow, with the possibility of sending it to the system tray, asking it to run at the start of Windows, automatic save settings, the use of keyboards and more.
Practical tool that helps you reduce eyestrain
On a final note, Iris presents an intuitive way to reduce the fatigue that her eyes inevitably experience when they spend too many hours in front of a PC. It helps you find the optimal configuration for your screen, without asking you to invest any effort in the whole matter, so, regardless of your technological skills, you can be sure that you will fully benefit from its capabilities.
