Brief Answer:
dry eye syndrome.

Detailed Answer:
It is only dry eye syndrome. As precaution you can keep anti glare screen before laptop or TV. If you are using specs then take ant-glare lens. if not only use plain anti glare specs.Do not stare at laptop or TV at a stretch for long time. In between close the eye and subsiquently blink for few seconds. Go near window and look outside. Put artificial tear eye drop like REFRESH tear drops, one drop for 3 times daily in both the eyes.
