hi shanker,

it seems that you are suffering from computer vision syndrome(CVS). This is not related to your eye infection. CVS can make computer work uncomfortable and cause irritating symptoms like eyestrain, fatigue, difficulty in focussing , dry , red or irritating eyes. Suggestion for you is that while working in the computer after every 20 minutes, look 20 feet awzy from your computer for 20 seconds. Remind yourself during this break to focus on blinking more frequently. You can use a lubricating eye drop ( Tears Naturalle II, 3-4 times a day).

Dear friend,

If you are a regular computer user your problem can be due to Computer vision syndrome.In your case the computer vision syndrome has got aggravated by the infection you developed in the past. since your infection part is over you should now concentrate on how to make yourself comfortable with work. You are required to blink a lot while work, take rest while work by closing eyes for a few second, use artificial tears (like refresh tears) and take diets rich in omega 3 fatty acids. Take care
