Best protection for the eyes from the computer & laptop screen

Is it better to wear special glasses or to put some sort or protection on the screen?  If so, please detail exactly what product is your suggestion.

Also, what is the most appropriate lightning to use.  Should it have backlight, top, etc.

I spend a lot of hours in front of the laptop.

Using a laptop in Lightning is not advisable!! Happy xmas ;)

Good question for ur eyes.
Try to use antiglare googles or antiglare screen for ur laptop .

Secondly, Blink ur eyes after regular intervals, and see any where besides ur laptop. in short i mean to say give a small break to ur eyes.

And the best solution is when u feel that ur facing some eye strain wash ur eyes with cold water.

If you wanna for lights the light should be exactly behind the screen .in such a way that its in front of u.
Additional to insoftservice comments I can suggest to get Matricaria (M. chamomilla) drops regullary in your eyes.

You don't need to wear anything over your eyes, if you adjust the display itself so that it is not too bright nor too dim and has the right contrast.  There should be no light reflecting from the screen; use soft, diffuse lighting that is above the screen.  If you are using CRTs, use a higher refresh rate, such as 72 or 85Hz and position the screen so that when you are seated, you look horizontally at it.

With regards to npinelo's comment, I would strongly advise AGAINST using any form of medication on a regular basis unless its prescribed. ALL forms of medication can have adverse side effects, why poison your body needlesly!!
All laptops conform to stringent specifications and H&S guidelines so long as you use them sensibly.
