    Left eye, right eye, both eyes or turned off 'cause you won't see much anyway
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    Maybe carry a folded card in the camera bag to shed it?

    Not sure it works but can give it a try.

    I learnt on Mythbusters that the reason why pirates wear eyepatches is so that they can go below deck where its dark and still be able to fight or walk around by closing the 'bright' eye. The covered eye will be conditioned to see in the dark.

    Maybe this can be applied to viewing LCD screens

    cup your hand around the screen
    It is the camera, not the photographer.
