Interlace flicker used to drive me nuts. Time went by, and it wasn't a problem anymore. I figured the screens had improved. Years later, I spoke with a research engineer who had looked into the issue for IBM. He said the problem went away because I became older. Some people are more sensitive than others, but younger people are especially prone to the problem. Also, women generally tend to be more prone to it than men. It's too expensive to design a screen that will make everyone comfortable, so manufacturers try to accommodate as wide a range of sensitivities as possible, while keeping the costs down.
In other words, you may be just outside the manufacturers' sensitivity curve. Give it some time, and the problem may go away on its own.
