Take a 15 minute break after every 45 minutes of play.

That's a bit impractical. Sure that's what they recommend but you shouldn't have to do that. I don't at least. Do you wear contacts or glasses? Try playing without them if you can still see okay. But no, you shouldn't need to take 15 minute breaks every 45 minutes.

Your eyes will thank you in the future if you take at least a 10 minute break every hour.

Are you going from a DSi XL and now squinting a lot? LOL

How close is the screen to your face? If it's touching your nose, I'd suggest backing up a tad.

Really though... I can't see why you'd be having issues now unless it's brightness like the others have said. Is it with any particular game?

Just do the break trick is all.

Also, try holding your system further or closer to you. You might just be putting strain on your eyes from where you are looking at it.

Do you ever get these problems with TV screens or computer monitors?

The 3ds hurts my eyes, and NOT when it is on 3d mode, just the regular screen, it didn't happen with the other ds. my question is can i do anything to not have my eyes hurt so much?

You just have sensitive eyes or are playing it for hours on end no breaks

Wear sunglasses while you play your 3DS at minimum brightness and on power-saving mode

Not only is it easy on the eyes, but you'll look uber cool in the process!
