It may just be time for the old eye doctor??
And it could be eye strain. I have glasses and when I don't wear them (99% of the time) and I try to focus between the PC and my phone (I know) or the
PC and the TV, I can not focus them at all on the furthest object. It's just too much eye strain focusing on a certain thing for far too long. The
eyes kind of like to get stuck for a wee bit afterwards, but it always goes away in a few minutes.
It could be any number of other things. If you look it up on web md you'll never be able to sleep again. (Seriously... don't do it)
Just keep an eye out for persistent symptoms and when they occur. If no other symptoms pop up try taking a break from the PC. If it still does it and
it has been 2 years since you have seen the eye doctor... think about going. And if you are old like me, your eyesight can seem to diminish rapidly in
one day. The eye loses a lot of it's ability to focus as we age and this can lead to all kinds of screwy things.
ETA - That I actually did wake up a few years back and drove to my mom's for a visit. I started freaking out when I couldn't pull focus in like I
usually do. It did seem to occur overnight so I called the eye doc. I told him the symptoms, he looked at my eyes.... looked at my chart... looked at
my eyes again... and said "That's Why!". Scared the crap out of me. I asked what it was... he said you are getting old and had a good laugh. I didn't
laugh for a while. I do now though. Honest to goodness, it seemed like it happened literally overnight. He said that the eye can compensate for
certain things until we reach a certain age then the muscles just don't work as good as they used to so it makes it seem we lost eyesight function
