In brief: Drops

Dry eyes when working, especially on a computer often results from a low blink rate.
Artificial tears are the first line of defense applied regularly. You may also benefit from the 20/20 rule where every 20 minutes look up and rest the eyes with blinking for 20 seconds. If these don't work you may need Restasis or tear duct plugs. You can also try omega-3 oil supplements.

In brief: Dry

Try using artificial tears, such as systane, every 30 minutes.
Take a break every hour to rest your eyes, if possible. Wear eye protection if working in hazardous areas.
