I think an anti glare protection might help, it reduces brightness and color of a screenMacbook and iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.4), 13'' Late 2008 and 27'' i7 Mid-2010
Currently Being ModeratedOct 27, 2010 11:13 AM (in response to fstop07)It could be because your eyes are straining to see the smaller fonts? If that is the case, have you tried taking down the resolution by one notch. I did that by going to System Preferences -> Displays and changing it to 1920 x 1080. That helped, but still wasn't quite enough for me, so I went to Finder -> View (top menu bar) and changed the text size to 14 (other choices are available). I also changed the minimum text sizes in my browsers, Mail, etc.
If you haven't tried any of those, give them a try and see if that helps.27" 3.2 GHz iMac i3, 4 GB RAM, 13" white early '09 MB,, Mac OS X (10.6.4), LaCie d2 DVDRW, 2 LaCie d2 Quadra ext HD , Wacom tablet, Epson Artisan 810

Welcome to Apple Support Communities
Before you buy plastic film or something to stick over your Display, there a are a couple of other free things that you should try first.
1. Shades > http://www.charcoaldesign.co.uk/shades
+Shades is also great if your working in a dimly lit room.+
2. Selecting and/or Calibrating a darker Display Profile.
