I can't for the life of me remember the brand name... But they are basically no line bifocals with no glare and they are calibrated for people with good vision who use computers. I don't actually notice the prescription, but they do keep my eyes relaxed and I don't get achy eyes.
Just ask your eye Dr about something to help with migraines. That's all I did and whammo - fancy glasses. Insurance covered them too which was sweet.

I switched the light bulb in the desk lamp that shines on the keyboard. When my son visited last year I didn't realize he or his wife had replaced the burned out incandescent with a curly fluorescent. I've switched to a 50 w halogen.

Monitor refresh rate settings can improve headache condition or eye strain.

If possible a refresh rate of 72Hz or higher will correct many issues.

Settings adjusted in screen properties or on directly on the monitor/lcd.

Higher Hz := Better viewing.
