Global Dark Night Themes from Stylish to Protect Your Eyes from Radiation of Computer

I saw night theme for the first time in UC mobile web browser. I loved that theme, because it protects my eyes form unwanted radiation coming from my mobile phone. Then I searched for if this night theme is also available for desktops, and then I found Stylish extension, using which I can install global dark night theme for my web browser. Thus, my eyes get protected, specially while browsing in the darkness of night. Any reader should use this extension and Global night theme for the protection of their valuable eyes.
