In brief: Computer eye problem

Computer use often leads to eye dryness due to decreased blink rate and the increased exposure of the eyes related to the position of the computer. There may also be eyestrain issues related to close work.
Consider using otc artificial tears, not "get the red out" drops while using the computer and before going to bed. If the drops are irritating, you might need to use preservative free drops.
