Have you tried changing the scale of the GUI ?
You might need to take regular breaks from the screen every 30 mins or so, I like to look up into the distance for a minute or so, or get up and move around for a few minutes to reset.
Or go see an optometrist get you eyes checked, don't tell him your issue or he'll try to sell you some bunk eyestrain glasses for computers (total bull**bleep** product).
I have turned the OS to dark mode and used settings and extensions to make as much of my GUI's 'dark' , I find dark greys the best, these high lux/nit displays really pound my retina's.
Also try using eye drops.
See what works for you !

Hi, luckypunq, thanks for your reply.
I always use 250% scale in display settings and now I use 300% scale.
I found I can hardly open my eyes when I used the computer for some hours even I have my eyes rest some minutues.
Someone says the screen is poor quality and even there is no method to make things better.
Do you use the same screen? I mean 4K resolution and the same screen brand.

Thank you for your reply.
I have open night mode from AM 1:00 to PM 12：00 and set color tempture to 4500K.
But I still fell seroius eye strain.
Now I try it in Linux from in windows 10. Hope it will become better.
My eye strain started too 3 weeks ago. I believe it is related to summer, the intensity of blue light is getting stronger, which causes eye strain.
Your best bet is using FLUX or Windows 10's night time feature.
You can find how to enable night mode here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4027563/windows-10-set-your-display-for-night-time

I am also having an eye strain after a couple minutes of woking with my P51 laptop.
LCD is also B156ZAN02.1 UHD. My previous laptop had B156ZAN03.2 UHD (Lenovo X1 Extreme Gen 1) and the problem was the same.
I want to admit that this is not the problem related to the LCD color temperature or Windows theme/font sharpness.
Why? Because I have two other laptops (under Win 10 and Mac OS) with a colder color temperature and do not have any issue of working over the 12 hours. Screen density is not the issue too.
