it is because of eye strain, the muscles of the eye are put to work for long time hence they are tiered. revolve the eyes in all direction once every 2 hours and close them for 5 minutes. much of the efforts will be resolved.

i normal if u use laptop or comp. frequently do blinking exercises, take breaks in btw. use cucumber slices or paste over the closed eyes this will remove the excess heat.
