computer/TV related eye problems?

Two months ago, while sitting in front the computer I felt a sharp pain in the outside corner of my left eye beneath the skin. Shortly after that the skin around the area grew red with little bumps that are evident after a shower or wetting my eye but almost disappear when my eyes are not exposed to water for awhile. Since that initial pain I feel a sharp, stabbing pain in both eyes whenever I am at the computer after 10 minutes to an hour. It is really uncomfortable and I find myself looking away as much as possible from the screen to relieve the pain and limiting my computer use. About the same time I found that after watching television for an hour my eyes become very sensitive, tears roll down my face every time and I have to look away within an hour or two. I have something like 20/20 vision, never needed glasses, everything is clear both near and far, and whenever I use the TV or computer I make sure that there is enough lighting. Any idea why?
