In brief: Many causes
Many things can make your eyes feel tired.
Naturally excessive near work causes the eyes to feel tired and this would include reading and computer work. The type of lighting used for these activities is important also. Dry eyes, allergies, frequent use of preserved drops, incorrect prescriptions or uncorrected refractive errors are other causes. Other eye diseases also cause this.

In brief: Most likely dry eyes
This is likely due to keratoconjunctivitus sicca or dry eye syndrome.
You should try artificial tear lubricants three times a day. If no better you should see an ophthalmologist.
