In brief: Rest

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. Get your eyes checked too by a doctor.

In brief: Check for glasses

If you're working at reading distances and you're 40 or so, often it's a need for reading glasses! a refraction (check for glasses) and an exam can expose a need for glasses.
Other problems such as dry eyes can be identified as well.
