I have non-glare coating on my reading glasses (variable bifocals actually) and I do not get any glare from the screen.

Do not use polarizing glasses.

You can get non-glare screens to put on top of a monitor screen. People used to use these with CRT monitors but I do not see them much in use on LCD / LED screens.

Have you tried turning the brightness down?

As far as I know, there's only one prominent brand for just exactly this market: http://www.gunnars.com

It's not the glare persé, more about the tiring spectrum of light (mostly blue)

It is possible to add a Blue Light Screen Protector Panel in front of your monitor to reduce the blue glare.
