Let me brief you.
In the absence of associated symptoms such as vision disturbances, redness of eyes and pain, occasional dryness of eye and strain is unlikely to be related to serious eye problem.
I feel you could be suffering with generalized dry eyes which can be confirmed with a clinical examination at an eye clinic.
I would urge you to see the doctor whenever feasible.
In the meantime
You can follow these instructions.
1. Drink plenty of water and avoid exposing your eyes to bright light for a long time.
2. Use your spectacles at most occasions.
3. Occulomist which are saline eye drops can be used whenever you feel your eyes is lacking tears.
It acts as artificial tear drops to lubricate eyes and reduce strains.
These measures can be help you until you see an ophthalmologist.
Have you followed?
Do you have any other queries?
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
