Light causes more problems that anything else. Bias lighting is what you need. Bright screen in a dark room is what hurting your eyes.

Limit the gaming to an hour at a time then!! Surely your poor eyes are trying to tell you something. You only get one set of eyes so look after them!!

I've got a pair of Gunnar Optics. Bought them off Amazon when they were on offer. Thought they would help with headaches and watering eyes (I'm on the computer most of the day working) but they didn't help much. Found that the best cure is switch the computer off and go out.

Unless you're tired, fatigued or exhausted, poor lighting and/or environmental conditions, or the computer equipment is incorrectly configured, an user shouldn't have problems with eye strain after an hour. As NK74 stated manage your computer usage carefully, open a window, improve lighting conditions, adjust the chair to the right angle and length away from the screen, change the resolution, contrast or brightness of the LCD (unless it's a CRT which does cause major eye strain), more sleep, avoid being dehydrated but it is advisable to see another opticians as a precaution.

Sometime a person may require an additional very low prescription for computer usage to compensate for eye strain, but only an expert will clarify this situation, while checking your general health and background. A prescription lens can also include a specialised tint (yellow or blue), anti-reflection coating or prism which may stop the headache. ( Ophthalmist again). Don't forget it is possible to get a Free test (from your work) if you work with VDU (normally 8 hours I believe), claiming benefits, or even looking around HUKD as supermarkets sometimes do free tests, or Boots (£10 voucher online).
