Prescription change?: Depending on the last time you've had your eyes checked, you may have a refractive error, that may have changed in terms of your history w/ astigmatism.So you might want to have this rechecked, so that you're wearing the best possible visual corrected glasses/contact lens possible.Also make sure that your eye doctor checks for dry eye syndrome, as that can also sometimes cause those symptoms too. ...Read more

BAK Preservative: Benzalkonium Chloride is a common preservative in eye drops, including artificial tears. It can cause an allergic reaction in some people if the tears are used frequently. Try preservative-free single use vials of ocular lubricants and you should be okay for frequent dosing. Another alternative are these new electronic misting devices to spray a little cloud of clean water in your eyes. See EyeMD. ...Read more

Dry, tired eyes.Headache. Fatigue. Occasional nosebleed. Lubricating eye drops help but only for a short time.

?allergy mediated?: Could be allergy mediated symptoms you are having. Sometimes the type of heat you have (forced air through vents, as opposed to floor radiation, etc) can cause dryness, nose bleeds, etc at this time of year as well.

Working : Working at a computer screen for long hours is very tough on the eyes, for two separate reasons: 1) when you concentrate on computer work, most people blink less than they should. Under normal conditions, the average person blinks once every 5 seconds, but when using a computer, many people blink only every 8-10 seconds. This can cause the eyes to feel dry and become red and irritated. The solution is to rest the eyes throughout the day, if only for a few minutes each hour. Eye drops will not help much. Fish or flaxseed oil pills (omega-3's) help a great deal by making the tears a little thicker. 2) if you are over 40, you might benefit from reading glasses while working at the computer. Oftentimes, the reading glasses sold in the drugstore (no prescription needed) will do the trick. ...Read more

Dry eyes: Can have many causes. If OTC eye drops don't help in 2 days, let alone 2months, continued usage will not suddenly begin to help, and may actually do harm. See an Opthalmologist, a specialist eye physician, to discover cause, and to then prescribe the appropriate treatment. You need a comprehensive eye examination. Not a computer link. ...Read more
