    Apple makes it's own anti-glare option on the 15" MacBook Pro - why not just get an Anti-Glare model instead of the Glossy screen?

    Had my 13" MBP ~ 2 weeks now and still getting headaches and eye strain .

    Thus I bought the Green Onion antiglare film from Fry's and works a little with my headaches, still have some minor eye strain and headaches though. I don't program or photoshop, only surf the web and check emails.

    The screen image does look grainy though :(

    I'm contemplating returning the 13" for a refurb 15" anti glare matte screen now.

    If it's really that bad, I think you should go to the apple store and see what they can do, maybe you can pay the restocking fee or something and upgrade to the AG, I dunno...

    The glare may have nothing to do with it. You may just be straining to read the screen because of the color calibration. I use an app called Flux...it changes the color temp based on your lighting preferences and time of day. Hopefully this helps.

    I'm not sure, I'd email & ask. They are very experienced, trustworthy & fast. I've had other work done by them and they're reasonably priced as well. I'm very pleased with all they do.

    download a app called nocturn it lowers the screen brightness lower then the apple setting that might help you
