HI A B! So, I completely understand you. I have the same problem. To my regret, I must say that in our case we will suffer all my life with the screen (this is the peculiarities of the device of our eyes),
but not everything is so bad! The load on the eyes can be reduced
and some even manage to completely remove it.
Now tell you how. First of all, I will explain to you why our eyes get tired.
A lot of blue light comes from monitors. No, not the blue shades you thought of, but "over" the blue
ones (now you really needed to get hurt when you looked at this color)
, which are so rare that their eyes do not fix much. read more about blue color
However, they very much shake the retina of our eye. The eye perceives this as twilight (you should have noticed that it hurts to look in the evening and in rooms where the light is close to blue.)
. Unfortunately for us now a lot of shops, clubs, universities, offices and so on use this light. (I recommend at home to install more "warm" lamps, such as the old radiating more beige tones)
. And so, as I said, the eye perceives as a sharp evening light and strains. It work at 200% and is therefore tired. As soon as we turn away and look somewhere to the side, we can feel a sharp pain due to a change in the tone of color.
The logical conclusion from all that I have said is to decrease the influence of blue light. How to do it? There are several ways, but their meaning is the same: add more beige color to our range of review.
1) Buy computer glasses. Something like these. https://www.bestadvisor.com/computer-glasses
As you can see on them a yellow glass, which in turn "absorbs" the blue light and reduces the load on the eye.
2)There is such a wonderful program as f.lux. You can download it here. https://forum.justgetflux.com
The principle of its work is the same as the glasses, but it immediately changes colors on the screen (and by itself to the TV you can not use it, they are for PC only). This method can be used instead of the first one and can be combined. But see that the level of beige color is also not too high.
3)Do more frequent breaks.
4)Buy eye drops. Believe me, it's not pleasant to drip, but it's the most effective way to protect your eyes. Voltage goes immediately.

Maybe I'll remember something more ... I'll definitely write to you.
I hope I can to help you
