While sitting too close to the TV may not permanently damage your eyesight, it sure will affect the health of your eyes in the long run. Eyestrain happens when your eyes suddenly become watery or itchy or red and you feel relaxed when you close them.
Don’t sit too close to the TV!
Modern TV sets emit very little electromagnetic radiation, but they can be damaging if viewed from an extremely close distance. Some parts of the TV emit more, while others less, frequency radiation. Since the TV’s today are large in size, sitting at a distance is always preferred to get a perfect, complete picture of what you are viewing.
