It actually reduces glare. Which is better on the eyes. However, some are very expensive.

if it is an LCD screen, i could GUARANTEE you it's not because of the refresh rate... unless it's over 7 years old

maybe the monitor is faulty, so you are getting flicker that is not related to the refresh rate.

Well most people would not have these problems, but I get the exact same things (I am bionic boy )

#1: Reduce flourescent lights in the area, their annoying flicker combined with the monitor is terrible

#2: Run your screen on a higher refresh rate, something like 85 hz at 1024 X 768, if my 10 year old monitors can do this, so can yours

Make sure there is sufficient lighting in the room also. When I use my computer in the dark I get a headache.

Also, when you get a headache, take a break.
