Eyestrain is temporary discomfort or aching in or around the eyes.

Eyestrain is neither a medical term nor a diagnosis. In contrast to widespread belief, you cannot damage or strain your eyes by using them under difficult conditions, such as reading small print in poor light or wearing glasses of the wrong strength. Although aching and discomfort are commonly attributed to eyestrain, they are often headaches that are caused by tension or tiredness of the muscles around the eye as a result of frowning or squinting.

The symptoms normally attributed to eyestrain do not require treatment and normally disappear on their own, but, if the problem worsens or persists, you should consult your doctor.
