I've been working full-time in front of a computer screen developing software for over 20 years, I'm 40 years old now, and I do not wear glasses. If I work on a computer for 16 hours straight my eyes may get tired, which tells me it's quitting time.

As for the medical community, it sounds to me that the jury is still out on whether computer use can damage your eyes. One online reference reads, “computer usage has not been conclusively shown to cause permanent damage . . . there is evidence to suggest that small vision defects . . . may start to cause problems when carrying out more visually demanding tasks. In other words, computer screen use could exacerbate existing conditions . . .” http://www.healthyeyes.org.uk/index.php?id=87
