There is also Ambilight technology - a backlight technology for TVs (for monitors too). There is a video on the Internet how to do it yourself. LEDs are mounted behind the monitor, and are a "continuation of the monitor" (LED color = screen edge color). Very helps relieve eye strain
As an optician, I would advise you to use glasses with specialized lenses that have a residual blue reflex (antiglare).
Such lenses cut off the spectrum of blue light harmful to the eye, while leaving a useful range necessary for normal human life (regulation of sleep, mood, etc.)
Of the indirect advantages, I can note clearer vision at night, including while driving (anti-glare affects, making everything around a little more contrast and "yellow").
However, I do not advise you to purchase ready-made versions of such glasses. Their price is cheaper, but, like any ready-made glasses, they are made from "recyclable materials" that can cause allergies. And, most likely, such conventions as "useful range" are not taken into account there - which will make you feel worse.
Personally, I downloaded the "Dark Reader" chrome extension and was very pleased. This extension makes the "night mode" for all / specific pages, there are settings for contrast, brightness, shades of gray and yellow, which is known to be softer perceived by the human eye at night and thus makes reading easier. There are also font settings, you can put a nicer / softer one.
I also advise you to turn down the brightness from the maximum by at least half and buy a high-quality monitor with an IPS matrix, peace.
There is a wonderful 20-20-20 rule that will help you get rid of the discomfort of sore eyes. 20-20-20 means you need to take a 20 second break after every 20 minutes of work and look at distant objects at least 20 feet (6 meters) away.
To remember to take breaks, use these pribludami:
