In brief: Yes

If the strain is coming from presbyopia (loss of accommodation) and long hours of use.
Adjust the power of reading glasses to the focal point distance from the computer screen vs. Font size (and reduce glare).

In brief: Yes

To use a computer monitor, you need the ability to accommodate or focus up close.
Presbyopia is common and can be completely alleviated by use of glasses. Plus, lens tiniting can be used to reduce glare and improve contrast. See you ophthalmologist for a full evaluation and refraction.
