    What does it look like when a blue light filter is in effect on a monitor? I will be interested in turning it off if it causes unrealistic colors or contrast, especially for something like photo editing. I don't want to buy a monitor that is incapable of displaying correct colors for the supposed safety of our eyes.

    I think it changes the colors to warmer shades so they won't hurt the eyes. What you can do is explore other possibilities of lessening eye strain without affecting the color and contrast settings. One example of this could be the IPS glow, which is the glow of the screen that's an effect of excess light in the monitor panel. I've read about IPS glow here: https://www.displayninja.com/what-is-ips-glow-and-how-can-i-reduce-it/ . Tips on how to reduce IPS glow are included there too, so that would be one less aspect of eye strain for you.
