Could be many things: Eye strain can be caused by several factors...A very important symptom is any rapid and significant change in visual acuity.
I don't see that in your question.
I would suggest that you make an appointment with an optometrist or an ophthalmologist for an evaluation of your acuity issues....If not, then a visit to your family doc for a comprehensive medical work-up is in order...
