Dry Eyes: Use systane eye drops - not visine - and a warm compress.

Artificial tears: Either may help, but artificial tears may provide more comfort.

Try blinking more: Rather than staring at the screen for hours, attempt to blink more frequently every ten minutes or so. Your eye surface is drying as a result of decreased blinking.
