Cannot Activate Eye Comfort Shield?

The Eye comfort shield or Blue light filter may not be available if the color adjustment or color inversion option is enabled in the Accessibility settings menu. 

  • To ensure that this isn’t causing an issue, navigate to your phone’s Settings-> Accessibility-> Visibility Enhancements menu then toggle to turn the Color inversion switch OFF.

If you’re using a color filter, tap Add color filter in the Visibility Enhancements menu then tap the switch at the top to disable the feature.

Turning off the color adjust settings may also help.

  • To do so, just tap Color adjustment or Color correction in the Visibility enhancements menu then turn the switch to disable the feature.

After disabling all these visibility enhancement options, retry heading back to your display settings and see if the Eye comfort shield is already available.
