It seems from the history that you are having eye strain after working in front of lab top. This may be because of dryness of eyes caused by excessive use of laptop and it is called as computer vision syndrome.
The treatment is by using artificial tears eye drops and by avoiding long working hours with laptop and taking frequent breaks in between while working on laptops or computers.

Thank you
