Dear Selly, Hi,Strain in the eyebrows after working on computers and long hour of work with improper sleep may be due to 1.lack of sleep,2.Refractive error.3.Computer vision syndrome.So have an adequate sleep of atleast 6 hours .If still not relieved go for an eye check up to rule out any refractive error which may cause brow pain as you may be straining to look at the letters.Third if there is no refractive error then its computer vision syndrome, where you may be suffering from dry eye and eyebrow strain.Use some lubricating eye drops and take breaks between your work while working on system and blink your eyes regularly as we forget to do it when we are engrossed in our work...Tc ..Dr Ajay Shanakar Kar
