You damaged the LCD panel. Your options are:

 

1) Live with it (not recommended)

2) Replace the panel. 

 

There is no way to stop or fix it that I am aware of.

 

Sorry you're dealing with that, it does suck more than a bit.

As said above, the only solution is to get it repaired or live with it.

Step 1) Visit an Apple Store (or Louis Rossmann)

Step 2) Empty your wallet & bank account

Step 3) Cry a little over a poorly designed & engineered product*

Step 4) Buy a new MacBook in 3-5 years anyway

Step 5) Profit? Er. Wait. Not this time.

 

* to be clear, I don't hate on Apple for the same reasons the masses do - in fact, I dearly miss having an iPad and am patiently waiting for an iPad Mini refresh, if it ever happens. However, manufacturers that design products to be non-repairable throwaway devices, or devices where repairs are so expensive you may as well dispose them anyway, are just asinine & idiotic from a consumer standpoint.

I totally understand the business decision behind it - sell the consumer a brand new device, even if we could have designed it to be repairable in the first place. But this is absolutely NOT sustainable in terms of our pocketbooks, let alone the environment on our planet, so I stand by my statement of hatred towards companies that don't think about the long term picture, and recommend you only purchase products that have been properly designed too.
