You may be straining: and doing too much computer work, which means you are staring at the screen and not blinking much. Lubricating eye drops can help (without preservative) that are also called artificial tears. They will moisturize your eyes, and are easy to use. Post a note to blink more often by your computer. Be kind to your eyes. Myopia may be from the shape of your eye, and that's harder to reverse by itself.
