How Can I Reduce Eye-Strain?

My laptop causes me great eye-strain.

Part of the problem is that the screen is very shiny, so I always seem to get some reflection. (Can anything be done to reduce this?)

Where I used to work, some people would place some sort of add-on screen over the front of their monitor in order to help reduce eye-strain. Does anyone happen to know what this device is called?

Any help would be much appreciated!

You can get screen covers/dimmers that reduce the amount of brightness coming from the screen.
Other options include don't sit so close to it, or reposition the laptop to avoid as much reflection as possible.

Those were really only for the old CRT beasts, you can turn down the brightness, having a monitor with a good contrast ratio helps allot and adjusting the colours and screen height and position also have an effect.
