Well; Here are a few tips for better Eye care while working on Computer : 1) Take breaks in between - every 20 to 30 Minutes .Or even better after every 15 Minutes . 2)After every 15 Minutes;look away from screen ; say to a point far away for 30 seconds or 1 Minute .This would reduce the strain on your eyes. This would also prevent a problem of Eye where your side vision becomes weak and you might need to consult an Opthamologist . 3)use an Anti-Glare screen to cut out Harmful radiation from the Computer screen .

I see your responders before me have given you wonderful tips to maintain your good vision while using the computer for long. I, too, have the same problem. Sometimes I could feel I really need to take some rest for my eyes. Sometimes I'd already get a blurred vision because of the long time that I have been exposed to the computer's glare. Nice discussion. I'll keep their advice in mind, too. Thanks for starting this.

Hello, I visited an opthalmologist yesterday and he suggested to buy this particular eyedrop called Cellufresh MD. It moistens the eyes, perhaps when you are overexposed to the computer you forget to blink thus it is strained.

Hello,thanks for nicely responding and giving a very useful suggestion.Now-a-days,I am relatively getting more exposed to internet works,especially for writing few articles for my blog and for other sites.I feel some strain if I work for hours at a stretch. I will certainly make a trial with the eye drop you have suggested. Have a nice day!!

You should use homoeopathic medicine "Sineraria maritima euphrasia". It is the best eye drop I have ever known.
