I remember back in the 60s people used to say that watching too much tv harmed a persons eyes. I wonder if that was true(and still is true). But what about a computer screen? I know some people are on computers all day long. I couldn't do that but I wonder what the limit is before it causes harm. Maybe it depends on the person.

Additionally, for weak eye sight, one may have special glasses which are made to focus at arm length (the distance of screen for eyes) or so.

After every hour take a little walk around, move neck, back, arms and legs as you like.

Good link^, I had a gander at it, and would suggest it to the OP.

I try to make sure to get up & walk around every so often,
as well as close my eyes (since computer screen watching can lead to staring & dry eyes)
and also look out the window from time to time.
