LCD's tend to be pretty long lasting, I have seen PowerBook 180's with fully functional color LCD screens, and these computers were produced in the early 90's. If the LCD isn't as great as it used to be then it might be a defect . If it isn't as bright as it used to be then the backlight inverter might be dying. This can be replaced pretty easilly. LCD panels tend to get a tint if they a exposed to heat. I have seem cases where LCD TVs will say on the warrenty that heat damage causing a tint. And ben is right, they didn't make stock led panels in the MB Pro that you have? Did you modify it? LEDs ancan last a lifetime. The led backlight wouldn't fade over time like a cfl light.
