    I don't think you will be blind just because you have myopia and work in computer profession. However, your degree might increase in the situation you mentioned. What you should do is to protect your eyes by leaving your seat and looking at some thing in a far distance to relax your eyes. Also doing some eyes exercises will help. Finally, you should go to the eye doctor's often to get tests and buy the suitable glasses for you.

    Actually, the mayopia can not cause blindness. However, your working environment is not good for your eye, it may cause high degree. In that way, you need to pay more attention to your eye and get it tested periodically. More relax of your eyes will help.
