yes new studies show that it is not good. Answer yes it makes your eyes strain to see, which is probably why most people get tired while watching tv, the pupil in the eye is constantly adjusting in size to the different levels of light, so it could cause eye fatigue. That is, it makes your eyes …tired and could make it temporarily harder to focus. It's not likely to cause permanent damage. Answer No it isn't. A television is a cathrode ray tube with is in effect shooting light onto pixels. Therefore when you watch tv in the dark you are basically watching a light. Having an alternate light source in the room will make no difference whatsoever to your eyes, except if that light source is reflecting off the glass TV screen which would cause a glare. If this happens then your eyes will really strain because they are trying to adjust to see the light from the CRT. So, having another light on when watching TV could actually hurt your eyes! Answer Don't watch TV in the dark! How many times have we heard that? The truth in the statement lies in understanding contrast ratios. The eye can adapt to an very wide range of light levels, but it can only adapt to one light level at one time. When one looks at a bright computer monitor on a dark background the eye doesn't know whether to adapt to the bright monitor or the dark background. When this happens hour after hour, day after day, fatigue sets in. The same thing can happen when looking at a brightly lit sheet of white paper in a dark room. To lessen eyestrain: lower the brightness on the monitor; increase the light in the surrounding area; or both. Just the opposite problem can occur when one places a computer monitor in front of a window. The bright daylight surrounding the screen makes it difficult to see what is on the screen. It is best to place the monitor perpendicular to the window to minimize high contrast and reflections on the screen. Answer NO! Watching T.V. in the dark is not bad on the eyes. Setting to close to the T.V. is not bad on the eyes. ophthalmology facts are available on the related links below Answer"> Answer But I for one do not believe them, a newer study by Sciencedaily came up with a different result. Have a look at their report on he related link below Answer It is a myth that watching TV in the dark is bad for the eyes with no scientific basis. The eye is able to view varying degrees of light intensity and colours due to the presence of rod and cone cells present within the retina of the eyeball. Rod cells are responsible for night vision and cone cells are responsible for more detailed, trichromatic vision. Utilising a combination of these cells will not damage the eye. The myth is linked to the fact that reading in the dark is bad for your eyesight. This is indeed fact due, to the fact that most people require the straining of their eyes in order to make out characters in a book. Rod cells are not particulary good at viewing objects in detail. Any prolonged straining of the eyes can be damaging. Watching tv in the dark at the correct distance is not damaging. Don't you think the popularity of cinemas would have rapidly decreased otherwise? Please note that prolonged viewing of any single object CAN cause eye fatigue/strain, which once again can be damaging to the eye; this should not be confused with the act of watching TV in the dark. Remaining a focus on a fixed point for very long periods of time, such as a screen can be damaging, in light or dark. Sitting close to a screen is NOT recommended, because the light intensity is far greater at short distances. If your eyes feel discomfort, have a break. Source:Prof. Simon King E ANSWER The eyes are not hurt by watching TV in the dark. If you watch a lot of TV the contrast difference may cause some eye strain , but this only causes eye fatigue which really isn't all that bad for the eyes. The eyes are more durable than that. Answer_with_physics_(kind_of)"> Answer with physics (kind of) If you look at those motion pictures as a source of light, then you can picture having some light in the room can cancel out some of the lights sending from the TV through destructive interference. However, constructive interference can also occur which can amplify the color. So I don't really know whether constructive or destructive predominates (probably has something to do with the geometry of the light source and the TV). One thing for sure, with no lights in the room, the colors are truer since there's no interference. Answer: Millions of people who watch movies in dark theaters around the country dont seem to complain out the lights being out while watching their flick.

Because there are rays that come from the Tv. which are bad for you and kill brain cells
With children at least, the answer is yes. Studies have shown that children that sleep with light in their room such as lamps, night lights, or televisions have an increased chance of near sightedness as adults. Apparently, they need the hours of darkness for their eyes to properly develop. Falling …asleep with the TV once and a while isn't dooming them to a life time of glasses, but it shouldn't be made a habit. (MORE)
If you r bored you can watch t.v. .T.v. keeps you company because it has lotsa movies and programmes!!!!!! .
yes... anything electrical can extremley damage your eyes because of Radiation. Radiation comes out of the computer. If you eye hurts too much don't go on it. Go on the next day. If you cant get to sleep its because you have been on the computer for tooo long or something like that. Be careful b…ecause you can get cancers or get blind. Please be Carefull. If you are addicted you can do all sorts of things than going on the computer. You are missing out all on the fun. There is even a list to do without going on the computer. You can use that list for a year or more. That's how big it is. Like 1000 points you can do. (MORE)
nope it's just a saying adults say to children so they dont watch too much t.v!
No, TV gives out a really low amount of UV radiation though that's only bad for your eyes if you watch TV for more than 6 hours without a light on. If you have a light on its fine but just don't watch to much TV. Just get outside unless your sick. but if your sick you should sleep not watch TV
watching TV in the dark does make your eye sight weak but only if your focusing on it too much. your eyesight will deteriorate over time not all at once. the best way to counter this is to look at an object that is at a distance after a short while so your eyes can refocus
No they dont. Its just something your parents threaten you with if you watch too much telly and dont get out and about.
It can hurt your eyes if you abuse with it but if you see it in moderation then im sure that theres a chance that it wont hurt your eye sight.
Simply click on one of the links below. They have lots of Movies& TV-Show episodes.
Yes watching tv Is bad for your eyes as it could make you lose vision. If you only watch a little bit of television, that's ok.
TVS, otherwise known as Television Sydney (www.tvs.tv), is an Australian free-to-air community television channel with an average monthly audience in excess of one million viewers.
it does not affect much if you follow some careful steps! . as see the TV program from a distance . don't watch for a long time (not more than 6 hours) . have a good day!
No. Not unless you wear particularly dark sunglasses that make everything so dim your eyes have to strain, and you do so for long periods of time. Otherwise, have at it. In fact, the right sunglasses, with a light tint, may actually help reduce eye strain from staring at a computer or television or …cell phone. Especially if you do so often. These are all light sources and staring at them can put a strain on your eyes almost as much as straining them while reading in the dark. (MORE)
The brightness of the screen means a lot. The room should not be dark for TV screens, or you should have a table lamp close to a computer screen, that is better for your eyes.
The best place that I have found where you can watch tv online for a small fee is Satellite Direct, includes loads of Satellite channels and is a really good service, including : FOX , ESPN , CBS , NBC , ABC ...

I will never go back to the huge monthly fees for cable. The cost of a lifetime's use of this product is less than one month's cost for digital cable. (MORE)
Yes it can. If you're watching a violent TV show you might want to fight people and kill animals. If you don't think this is true how come after every adventure movie you want to explore different areas and find hidden treasure or you see a karate movie and you say, "I wish I could fight like that g…uy." If that's the same for other movies why isn't the same for violent movies? Now people say, "I would never kill or hurt a person," but you never know. One of your best friends could have straight A's and good parents, but not a whole lot of friends. Maybe he sees a kid smoking and then he sees it in a movie then thinks, "Hey, I want to be cool too," so he starts smoking. Then one thing leads to another smoking, drugs, then lower grades, then he drops out of school and has a bad life. All of this happened was because he saw people do it and then TV convinced him. So yes TV can hurt you. (MORE)
Prolonged use of a computer has been shown to cause dry eye related symptoms in patients, common referred to as computer vision syndrome (CVS) People tend to blink less often while using a computer.
When you watch too much tv your eyes will become blurry and somtimse you won't be able to see clear at night.
yes if you watch it like that repetitively for long distances of time but if you don't do it very often it shouldn't turn out to be a problem. There is no evidence that sitting close to the television will damage your eyes. So sit wherever you are most comfortable. Eyes may become tired from sittin…g too close for long periods, if the light in the room is too dim, or if the picture screen is out of focus. Because of the radiation emited by the early types of television there was some chance of damage when sitting to clse however modern televisions are shielded to avoid this danger. (MORE)
Yes, particularly if you sit in a darkened room without any soft lighting to minimize contrast.
that happens when the child has better eye vision in one eye than the other. he/ she will tend to use the one eye they see best in, and tilt their heads so they can get a better view. **my brother did this a lot before he got glasses
That is just a lie parents tell you. You won't get "square" eyes but your eyes will go bad.
At 3:00 take a 10 to 15 minute break every hour. Watch it until 8:30 if you want.
It cannot hurt your eyes anymore than a smaller one. Watching tv doesn't hurt your eyes
If you were to close to the TV it would most likely effend your eyes. Including if you were sitting on your sofa it wouldn't affect your eyes...but it can if you've been watching it for too long.
it can hurt your eyes if your too close because the tv gives off a radiation that can give you cancer
I feel eye fatigue and dizziness whenever I watch 3d and I am afraid that 3d watching will affect my kids eyes Can somebody suggest me a better tv with no eye problem?
All 3D televisions have been the subject of this type of complaint. If you are one of the few people who cannot tolerate 3D imaging, it's better to stop watching 3D or limit viewing. If your children complain of the same symptoms, be a responsible parent and stop them watching 3D television. Althoug…h there is no medical evidence of long term serious damage, don't take chances with your own children. Perhaps as they get older, they will be able to tolerate it better. Also remember that different models are somewhat different to watch. Before buying, take the time to look at several models to see which is the most comfortable. (MORE)
Recently LG has launched its FPR 3d tv in India in which a special film is attached to both i.e. 3d tv glasses & 3d tv screen; therefore viewer can never face eye-pain which they were facing in present 3d TVs because of traditional tech. Hence, you can suggest LGs best FPR 3d tv to anyone as it's go…od for child as well as adults. (MORE)
There are some people who do not tolerate 3D imaging techniques. It's worth auditioning several different brands of television to see if there are any that you are able to tolerate. IF you find a model that works for you, then you will know that you are able to invest in a 3D television if you choos…e to. (MORE)
They're usually caused by tiredness. So if you are staying up late gazing at the telly instead of getting a full night's sleep then yes, it can!
Possibly. What will REALLY strain them, though is setting your tv to really low brightness.
You can use Airplay with an iPad and and AppleTV to push video from the iPad's Video app, Netflix and other apps to your TV.
Yes, it is, as it is bad to watch TV in general. However, regarding that fact, no it is not. In fact, it's better than watching TV with the lights off .
Hillsong is my favorite show, but different people might like the shows on HGTV, Nickolodeon, or the cooking channel. Different options for different interests.
You are straining your eyes by watching tv in the dark; your pupils are dilating to focus and straining. This will make your eyesight worse and make your power you need from external help like glasses or contacts increase. So, yes.
Yes, but only if you watch it too long. Have a parent give you a reasonable time limit.
One would not suffer from any significant eye strain from watching television on a 7 inch television. Eye strain is caused more by the closeness of the view to the screen rather than the screen's size.
