The eyestrain from shutter glasses varies a lot from person to person. Many people can use them for long periods of time without any strain, while others cannot use them at all. It really depends on your susceptibility to flicker.
BTW, how long did you try it for? A minute or two is not enough time to gauge how it will affect you.
