I use a glossy Macbook Pro at work and often am working on a terminal screen with a black background. It tends to reflect direct or incident light off the screen into my eyes and I notice this as glare. Today I didn't take off my sunglasses immediately when I came in and noticed that the glare was reduced significantly, and my eyes felt a lot more comfortable. Haven't tried this for more than a few minutes, and think I would get weird looks at the office.
Has anyone else tried this and came to any conclusion about whether sunglasses could viably reduce glare from monitor screens without hindering visibility and even causing more eyestrain? By the way. I have anti-reflective coatings on my prescription glasses and I don't notice much of any glare reduction from monitors. The sunglasses seem to work much better.
