No no, I can see just fine when I'm not looking at my monitor. In fact, I can feel the difference right away as soon as I look away from my monitor, my eyes feel better already and I can feel the strain disappear immediately. As soon as I look back at my monitor, the strain comes back.
No eye doctor is required. It's something to do with my monitor. I actually plugged in a smaller LCD monitor right now (1600x900 native) and it's not bothering my eyes right now so I was right...there's something not properly set up with the 24" inch monitor and my computer because this smaller one is working fine.

You are sensitive to the light/brightness from the bigger monitor. That could be a problem with your eyes.
Eliminate the possibility.

I've hooked up both monitors now as extended display so I can compare directly. The problem isn't the brightness, contrast, or color or any of that. What's bothering my eyes is the "text". Pictures actually look exactly the same. But the text is different.
The 21 inch lcd im using looks normal like the 24" used to be before I had to reinstall my OS and drivers. The 24" LCD text looks a little fuzzy and choppy which is why I'm having the teary eyes when I'm trying to read them.
I tried re-calibration, I tried cleartype, I've tried manually changing the screen resolution to something else and then back to native, but the text is still the same choppy/fuzzy look. I have downloaded the drivers for my monitor (up to date)...I don't know what it could be.
Once again, it's the text. I can see it clearly now that I have it side by side that the text on the 24" inch is fuzzy. One thing I did notice is that on my monitor settings, the option for "FINE" is NOT AVAILABLE it says. I'm able to adjust everything else including sharpness, but none of that helped. I'm wondering if the option for "FINE" is what I need to adjust but it won't allow me to.
Right now the 24" LCD is hooked up via HDMI cable since the 21" is using the DVI cable.

There are so many ways that a monitor can fail and cause all manner of eye strains. Color changes and sync faults can give instant headaches and even induce epileptic seizures. Another monitor would confirm that problem. Normal eye sight away from that display means it might be a high flicker rate that the eyes can't handle.
