Protecting my eyes

Hi.. I am a software professional. I spend minimum 12 hours infront of system in a day. Nowadays I feel like tiredness in my eyes. And water discharge in my eyes if I use computer for long time. But there is no problem in my vision. I am not wearing specs. Suggest me a way to protect my eyes by using any goggles or any other ways.
