What is bad for your eyes, if you sit too close to the television set. Another problem that effects your eyes in the long run, if you watch television in the dark. In addition the computer is bad for your eyes if you are on it too often and it's a must to have a desk lamp over your computer. The television is very bad for your eyes if you sit in front of it for over 2 hours.
