Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Eyes need rest. Being continuously in front of a computer screen will definitely make the eye tired and cause the tear film to dry up and it will turn red/ start watering etc.
You need to close your eyes for 5 minutes every hour and you can use OnTears eye drops 1 drop 5 times a day. Keep the eyes closed after instilling 1 drop.
Doing this will solve your problem gradually.
Best regards.
