Depends: Depends on what you are referring to as eye strain. If you are meaning headache and forehead/eye pain due to accommodation, proper glasses should help. If you mean irritated burning eyes, this is most likely due to dry eyes, this can be treated with artificial tears, oral omega-3's, and less concentration activities.

What is the best color combination on my computer to help reduce eye strain?

Warmer: Many people feel the warmer (lower k temperature) colors are more pleasing. There is a setting for this under your monitor control. Also, some feel a slight yellow tint to computer glasses reduces glare and increases contrast. Making sure the resolution is set to a native value on lcd displays makes text sharper as well.
