Is it bad for your eyes to stare at a computer screen all day?

I am an IT guy, and of course I have to sit in front of my computer nearly all day. I admit that sometimes I really feel dry in my eyes. But how bad can it be if I stare at a computer screen all day?

    Sitting in front of computer for a long time can cause a lot discomfort of our body, including eyes. It can cause eye fatigue, dry eyes, itchy eyes, blurry eyes and so on. And stare at computer screen very closely all day also can cause near sight. Having a break for your eyes every hour can reduce and prevent those problems.

    Yes, it is really bad for you to sit in front of the computer screen all day. The computer screen will give you a lot of radiation which is very harmful for your eyes. In addition, your eyes may easily get intense at the nerves. If you do this, your eyes may get infection, red and dry. You should have the rest now and then during your work. You should also eat more food with vitamin C to moisture your eyes.

    Well, I think you are really unlucky due to your professional requirements. Indeed, it would be absolutely harmful to stay in front of a computer, which may give rise to decreased vision, red eyes, even glaucoma. I mean, what you need is to take breaks from time to time, and make sure your diet is balanced and healthy. Also, some exercise keeps your eyes healthy and fit. Better yet, get a pair of computer glasses from Amazon or Ebay.
