I don't feel eye soreness either way. I have over 20 monitors in my trading room. I think the key is how you set up your chart environment. I use dim background (black actually) and bright, primary color charting display. I see many people use white background (very well be the default of the software). Worse... on top of that they use bright colors (red, green, yellow, etc..)... Bright colors for objects on a bright background is very bad for your eyes. Also... because the background color takes up so much of the screen's area (probably 80% to 90%)... white, bright background from multiple monitors, being starred at for 6 to 7 hours at a time can be very taxing to your eyes.
Below is a typical chart color combination I use. Black background, simple primary colors for price plots and indicators.
