Computer eye problem: Computer use often leads to eye dryness due to decreased blink rate and the increased exposure of the eyes related to the position of the computer. There may also be eyestrain issues related to close work. Consider using otc artificial tears, not "get the red out" drops while using the computer and before going to bed. If the drops are irritating, you might need to use preservative free drops.

Red eyes: Lots of potential causes. Could be blepharitis dry eyes allergies. Need to see eye care professional and don't try to treat with visine. Generally makes it worse and doesn't treat underlying cause of the problem, just masks the symptoms.

Again not specific: Well you could have had not enough sleep or not proper sleep.
You might need a sleep test.
First if this persists see an eye doctor.
