In brief: Look off in distance

It is important to relax and look off in the distance 1-2 times per hour to give your eyes a break.
Artificial tears are also helpful. If you are close to age 40 or are farsighted, then eyeglasses may significantly reduce eye strain or difficulty reading small print.

Be sure your posture is good and that you are looking slightly downward toward the computer screen. See an ophalmologist to be sure you do not need glasses and that your eyes are healthy.
