The best tip in my opinion is taking frequent breaks (although this is difficult with our busy lifestyles).
Eye doctors often quote the 20/20/20 rule. Which means to try and take a break every 20 minutes, looking 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds.

My second favorite tip in this video is about proper posture, unfortunately many of us (including me) have poor posture while working at a desk and using our mobile phones.

My third favorite tip is to use proper lighting while working. Using good light helps constrict your pupil which improves your near focus (increases depth of field). It also boosts contrasts and makes letters easier to distinguish. It is also good to use softer yellower light as artificial light can also produce blue light which may have negative effects on your eyes and neurological health.
