hi welcome to health care magic.dryness of eyes b'ze of eye doesnt produse tear properlor will have excess of tear running down the cheek so eye doesn't getting proper lubrication.so you if you used computer for hours so inbetween stop your work or blinking the eyes,or if you wear contac lens so reduce the hour of it wearing,or used artificial tear drops or lubricants,or close the duct which drain tear to cheek which is called punctul occlussion,or lastly surgery.

Dear Yogesh,there could be either dryness of your eyes,or some allergic reaction.there could be some common reason like,excessive dryness of eyes due to using computer,some hair oil you are using,some local cream or shampoo you may using.If your are working on computer many hours in a day ,please take a break of couple of minutes every hour and close your eyes.Wash your eyes with water 3-4 times in a day.Also look for dandruff in your hair.Please do not put any eye drops without consulting your doctor.take care.
