In brief: Yes

Most important is to periodically (every 10-20 minutes) look away from the close computer screen and look off into the distance (across the room, out the window, etc.
) for 5-10 seconds before resuming the computer work. Be sure to see you doctor if your symptoms do not improve.

In brief: No

But keeping bottles of lubricating eye drops (artificial tears) nearby and using them is a good idea.
Dry eye is common with a lot of computer work.
