I am repeating an issue that was recently discussed on this mailing list:
In case the size of the Mathematica-generated EPS is "large", say,
~2.5 MB (:D), it would result in slow rendering in both Illustrator
and TeXShop. One of the workaround is to save the figure in a
compressed form using, say, GraphicConverter, into a file of about 200
KB. The difference in rendering speed is dramatic, but in visual is
quite small.
Some other good useful suggestions can be found from the original thread.
