Dryness: Computer use is now extremely common for sustained periods. It is not harmful but it is drying.

A good vision exam that tests both near and distance vision, as well as a good ocular exam looking at the ocular alignment and ability to accommodate properly will give you the solution to your problem. ...Read more
Eyes sometimes feel like they cant focus. If I am on the computer reading the words seem like they move. Sometimes it feels like beating next to them.
Migraine: If this problem only occurs some of the time, and you are able to focus your eyes at other times, this could be a symptom or aura of migraine. The sensation of beating next to your eyes is not unlike the pulsating feeling of migraine. For more information on migraines see: http://understandingmigraine.blogspot.com/ ...Read more

Not likely.: This is likely to be due to being overworked or to tension. You might need a rest from your computer, or a refreshing hobby that stimulates you. Exercise and time outside can be a real help, and your body will get sunlight that is very important in processing of things like vitamin d, and cleansing of skin irritants and acne. Take time with your family, etc. And you'd be surprised how you feel. ...Read more
