So somebody suggested instead “the right pair of super-chromatic sunglasses”...

Recent versions of macOS include Night Shift, which is very similar to fLux.  I used fLux for years before Night Shift came along, and agree with Andy that the effect is very useful.

The macOS accessibility settings can invert the monitor’s display color.  For many apps, this is more than adequate especially if they app does not natively support a dark mode.

Since Jobs, Apple is philosophically and religiously fanatical about Steve’s White Zen conversion, dating back to the seventies.

Turning down brightness by night time dimmers, or putting on shades which nonetheless sounds very cool to me, is not exactly a dark or better yet a good black theme either.

Finally, simple hard edged inverting is also the usual lame suggestion not to mention tasteless as the age old Microsoft High-Contrast theme, mainly for the hard of seeing, has always scared anyone with any sense of class. Instead of just a negative filter, a good black/dark theme takes a bit of work to get the selected color palette, shades, hues & complimentary placement in the color-wheel right. Might be beyond some though.

Don’t believe anyone said fLus or Night Shift were dark mode alternatives.

I don’t know if my suggestion was lame—since everyone’s vision is unique to them—it was merely something to consider.

Thanks for the instruction.  I’ll take it to heart.

Indeed; these days I’m using a borrowed laptop where it’s not installed and the effect was very tiring. So I used this opportunity to try out this recent purchase: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0721VVMRG I found them quite satisfactory. Apparently the ‘tiring’ colour is a shade of blue.
