Eye strain...(sm)

Any ideas on how to reduce eye strain?  I have tried to minimize the glare on my monitor, look around periodically, etc., but my eyes are still killing me after about a half hour.  Not so good when you're looking at working an 8 hour day...

Eye strain.. need help!

I am finding I am doing a LOT of squinting and at the end of the day my eyes and the mucles around them and the tops of my cheeks burn/hurt.  I know it is because I'm on the computer a lot.  So, what is the best way to help prevent this?  I wear contacts too so try to remember to blink a lot.  They don't seem dry so I think I'm doing okay with that.  I used to wear my glasses when I worked but my 2 year old broke them about a month ago and I cannot afford to replace them right now... with my prescription and frames it is nearly $200! 

Do those things that you hang over the screen help?  LOL, I don't even know what it is called.  I have a larger screen (19"), changed my background color to grey, and use wider, larger fonts already and it doesn't seem to help much.

... to prevent neck strain. Lift it up on something if it's
