You have computer vision syndrome. Use abundant lubricating drops, blink a lot while working on the computer, don't sit with the AC directly blowing in your face, maintain correct posture while working on the computer, cold compresses, take frequent breaks.

Well you have something known as computer vision syndrome. I recommend that you use some lubricating drops, take frequent breaks, maintain proper distance from the computer, you may also put an antiglare screen or use antiglare glasses. Rule out refractive errors, sometimes minor refractive errors lead to lot of discomfort when we work for a long time on computers. Lubricating drops also play an important role as we tend to blink less while working on computers so we develop a dry eye
