Tired eyes : This could be due to dry eyes. Using artificial tears, taking breaks from intense computer work or reading, may also alleviate some of the strain. A good exam with an eye doctor will help you uncover any other issues.

Time for eye exam: Tired eyes are often a sign of either dry eyes or eye strain. Both can be related to long hours spent on a repetitive near task (like being on the computer for hours) and can also be caused by a need fro prescription glasses. Occasional blurred vision can be related to dry eyes or prescription changes also. You would be well off having an eye exam to be sure.
