In brief: Sometimes
The main cause of tired feeling eyes or eyestrain may well be from staring at computers and screens for hours on end.
This in turn leads to surface of the eye drying out, so a series of strong power blinks where you squeeze the eyes shut for 5 seconds, then open them, and repeat this about 10 times, should re-lubricate the surface and relieve tired eyes.
