Resolved Question:

I believe I am experiencing eye strain or eye fatigue. I have been out of work scouring online job listings and playing a few video games and getting eye irritation. I felt a little better when I was away from my computer and watching a movie on my television some distance away. What are the symptoms? What should I do for it?

   You are right, you are experiencing eye strain due to constant work on your computer. For this you need to give rest to your eyes-
- you can put lubricating eye drops like refresh tears/genteal/optive/systane eye drops. These are available OTC
- apply cold compresses to the eyelids by keeping ice or cotton dipped in cold water on closed eyelids.
- if the eye irritation is severe, then you can put anti-inflammatory eye drops like zaditor also (again available OTC).
