I can always degloss…

If you have to "think" there maybe an aftermarket stick-on matte screen, you really have to question some of your comments.

There is a difference between reflection and glare.

Certainly refelection can be eliminated by changing the angle of the screen, height of the chair/desktop and/or relocation of your postion relative to the light source.

Glare can be often reduced by simply repositioning the screen so it doesn't reflect off its surface, e.g., place the screen between you and the sun or light source.

You want to reduce eye strain, get a big monitor. Real big.

Owned and worked in graphic studios/agencies for over 20 years. Early days, we customized a lot of hoods until we realized that tilting a screen or adjusting room lighting eliminated the issue. And if you ever worked in that field, 10 to 14-hour days were not out of the norm.

Again, the new bright LED backlit LCDs make a significant difference on reflection. Think about it. Stand in front of a window and the darker the night, the greater the reflection. Stand in front of a window and the brighter the day, the less the reflection.
