Brief Answer: The symptoms indicate dryness of eye. Detailed Answer: Hello Welcome to Health Care Magic Iam Dr. Dadapeer K, an ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye. It seems from the complaints that you are having burning of right eye associated with watering which increases on working with computer or watching T.V. Burning sensation and watering of the eyes on watching T.V. or working with computer usually indicate dryness of the eye. The increase in burning and watering on watching T.V. or working with computer is because of decreased blinking and increase in dryness. The treatment is by using lubricating eye drops. The prevention of the condition is by Avoiding continuous watching T.V. working with computer for a long time without break. Taking break of at least 5 minutes for every one hour of continuous watching T.V. or working with computer. Washing the eyes with normal water atleast twice or thrice daily. Avoiding use of fan or air conditioner as far as possible as these increase the dryness of the eyes. With the above mentioned methods you will be comfortable and get relieved of your symptoms. If the symptoms persist it may indicate severe dryness requiring treatment under supervision of eye doctor. Hope I have answered your questions and the information I have provided is helpful to you. Thank you
