Pain in eyes, redness after working in front of monitor for long. No headache

Why do eyes go red and painfull when i work on monitor for long and it also aches. Since last 7 years i have been doing the same work but this thing developed a few days back? No tears but at times watery and no headache and as soon as i go out of the office there is an immediate relief. I reduced brightness of my monitor display and it has given me some relief. But since i am working in stock market there are many colleagues around with their monitors so at times i have to look at them also and then again i develop the redishness and aching.

hallo ... definitely you are suffering from either refractive error or Dry eye, you must consult an ophthalmologist near your area, and follow the "rule of 20" every 20minutes take 20 sec rest and concentrate an object distance of 20 feets.
