Your eyes are _incredibly_ important to the appreciation of the world around you (I’m guessing slightly here, but you are posting on a digital _art_ forum…). Therefore, you should take whatever steps are necessary to help them, and to help avoid degenerative age-related diseases (glaucoma, astigmatism, cataracts, partial blindness, corneal damage, and all those other wonderful ocular horrors X).
Laptops are really _not_ appropriate for long-term use - they’ve been designed with a different set of engineering constraints in mind (ie portability and battery life), rather than ergonomics and the health of the operator (although obviously these come in a close second, otherwise the manufacturers would be out of business). I believe quite a few modern laptops do come with Operator Instructions, and recommendations not to use them “for prolonged periods… [or]... if eyestrain occurs” etc etc (mostly legal stuff to avoid court cases, I suspect… but there is a _reason_ for it all…).
In that vein then, get an external monitor for your laptop - and, ideally, an external keyboard and mouse as well! Yes it is inconvenient, and you lose one of the major advantages of a laptop (portability), but compare that to the impact of the loss of your sight. The laptop monitor is a marvel of modern engineering (brightness, contrast, lack of after-images - remember when LCD monitors used to be compared on how much after-image would appear on a moving picture?) - pixel size etc), but all that magic comes at a price, to your eyes.
(imho, I am not an optician, etc etc <(^_^)...).
