In brief: Yes
Be sure to use the 20/20/20 rule: every 20 minutes, look up for 20 seconds at something at least 20 feet away.
Make sure your glasses are correctly focused and use artificial tears as necessary for dryness.

In brief: Yes
Our eyes are designed to see things in 3d.
When you look at a computer/book etc for a long time (a 2d surface) you can strain your eyes or get dry eyes. Every 20 minutes rest your eyes for 20 seconds by looking at something at least 20 feet away.
