I work Online and work for around 8 hours in a day sitting in front of computer. By the end of the day I feel pain in my eyes that goes to my head. I also feel burning sensation in the eyes, redness and sometimes watery eyes. Please suggest some tips and advice to deal with this issue. Also, suggest some eye drops and exercises that can help me to get rid of this problem.

I know all to well how frustrating eye strain can be, what I have learned is take frequent breaks away from the computer. Also about every 10 minutes or so, look away from the computer like at a wall or something a few feet away and let your eyes focus on it for about 10 seconds. That gives your eyes a break from the computer screen. Hope this helps... (((hugs)))
the eye drop is named ITONE from Dey's company. It is very relieving. this eye drop is for general purpose. use it twice daily till you feel relieved. I am not much good at suggesting the exercises. So i would recommend that you should print out a picture of good greenery, enough big like on A4 sheet paper and paste it near your desktop. Now all you need is to keep looking at it in the middle of your work from the desktop. It is said that the greenery of plants and earth is very relaxing to the straining eyes.

In the 40 years I have worked as either a keypunch operator or data entry operator I learned that the best way to relax my eyes was to go outside if possible and simply look into the distance especially if there is green in the distance. It's harder to do at work but now that I am home I make it a point to go outside at least every half hour just to prevent eye strain.
I'll suggest that you try the 20-20-20 practice. It has proved helpful to me. When it is 20 minutes, stare at something that is about 15 feet away for 25 seconds. Take frequent rests from your online job and get involved some other things. Also make use of a glare filter for your computer screen. All of these practical tips have proved helpful to me and others.
