Most of  the professionals don't know how to work on computer for long time without giving trouble to eyes. While working on computer number of blinking drastically goes down from around 24 per minute to around 8 per minute leading to severe dryness causing burning, eyestrain, blurring of vision & headache. One should try to have normal blinking while working on computer, should look away from screen after every 10 minute , should take rest for 10 minute after every 2 hours& should wear antiglare glass.  Professionals should use lubricating eye drops 4-5 times daily (Systane ultra)&genteal gel once at bed time. For itching you can use Pataday eye drops once or twice a day. For dark circle apply cetaphil moisturing cream around eyes during day time & Fixderma under eye cream at night on dark circles at least for 3 months.
