In brief: Rest

Sitting many hours in front of the computer can lead to eye strain, fatigue, watery or burning eyes, irritation and redness from dry eyes (blink less).
Best to take occasional breaks, since staring at that fixed screen distance can lead to constant accommodation and even more myopia progression in younger individuals.
