    Certain things can cause eye strain.

    Too low a refresh rate on CRTs can cause flicker.

    text on black backgrounds cause the eye to change focus frequently as they can not focus on the black.

    Characters that are too small.

    Continuous attention on a screen can cause you to blink less an your eyes to dry out.

    Take breaks, getting up an stretching helps your entire body.

    Don't spend too long staring at the screen. Pause a moment, sit back and close your eyes for a second or two.

    Drink plenty of fluids. Office environments can be very dry.
