How much is too much when it comes to sitting in front of a computer, tv, etc.? I'm online everyday for hours and I want to know how many hours in front of a screen is harmful to your vision. Are there any former IT professionals/ATCs that switched to being commercial pilots without any problems? Any help is appreciated.

The only problem with sitting in front of a computer is you don't blink as often as normal and the eyes get dry. There are no other eye problems that occur.

Just remember to blink and have fun flying.

Thank you for your help doctor. Now I can sit in front of my computer/tv without any worries. I also jog at night daily, but I don't focus on one area for too long. Will that be a problem for my vision?

What about if you are wearing contact lenses? Is it the same thing related to dry eyes?
