Hi Prasanna, It is computer vision syndrome due to dry eyes. Keep your eyes moist- Frequent blinking. Refresh tear eye drop- 1 drop 3-4 times while working with computer. 20-20-20 meaning-Break after 20 min work look at a distance of 20 meter for 20 secs. your eye sight check up. Hope you will be OK. Give me feed back, if required more suggestions.
