Lighting may be part but the main link between computers and dryness is that your blink frequency drops dramatically when you're staring at a screen. (Whoops just noticed PC just said this too ). There's a lot you can do about this - blink reminders, repositioning chair & screen so that less of your eye surface is exposed, wearing computer glasses to increase humidity around the eyes etc.
I really like the F.lux program to adjust screen brightness based on lighting situation and/or time of day.
