Pricking sensation in right eye, redness, pain. Splashing cold water helps. Cure for symptoms?

I have a pricking sensation in my right eye. It has increased since yesterday. If I look at a computer screen for a prolonged period of time like I do when I m at work the right eye becomes slightly red and there is a strong pricking sensation and a little bit of pain. Please advise. It feels better when I go to the bathroom and splash cold water on my eye.

Dear Monica... I have gone through your post in which you have mentioned that you have Pricking sensation, pain & redness in right eye since yesterday which aggravates on looking at computer screen for prolonged period of time & relieved on splashing cold water.
All these symptom indicate that you might be having Computer Vision Syndrome. get relief, you should avoid looking continuously at the screen.
Give rest to your eyes for 2 min in every half hour, splash cold water.
Artificial tear solutions may also be used every 4th hourly.
Another reason of concern may be due to different refractive power in both the eyes.
So...if the symptoms still persist, it will be better to consult your Ophthalmologist.
Wishing you good health & a speedy recovery.
Thanks and Take care.
