Distance from TV viewers to a minimum by more than 2 to 3 times the diagonal length of the screen. At such distances, you have a broad enough vision and can see far enough to comfortably without being annoyed by the image particles or broken neck last year to monitor the action from one end to other end. For example the TV 42 "x 3 = 126 '~ 3m3 (in round numbers). These are only theoretical figures, can actually change little. How do you think about this advice? Have you made ??this recommendation?

No, watching tv laying on the bed is not preferable. If affects the body with neck pain and also eye sight. It may strain muscles and causes back pain. Improper posture causes problems for our body.

I agree with mallu. We shouldn't watch TV on the bed. Bed is only for sleeping.

We try to sit back from the tv when we watch it also. My eyes get enough damage from staring at the computer screen for a long time. I do not watch much tv though.

It's lucky because you don't watch TV much. If you do that, I think it's dangerous for your eyes.

TV and computer both we should not sit too close to the screen because it causes eye strain and too much of that will cause loss of vision as well. I do not sit too close to the TV and thankfully I have a big screen where I usually sit quite a bit of distance away from it. But what is saving my eyes really is that I don't watch it too much anymore. lol If I do I usually have it on in the background so that I feel some company while home online.

I wish I could escape my computer. Its monitor is wide too. But I must work with it whole day. So, It's bored when I must see it

Yes, it is correct. A distance of 10 feet from the screen is maintained. And also watching tv for more than 2 hours continuously is not preferable. We must give rest for our eyes for every two hours interval and to wash the eyes with cold water is needed for the health of eyes. Other wise the eye sight will be effected.

I know that this advice is right but I rarely make it. I think because I'm lazy.

I always tell my kids to stop watching television so close up to the screen. I have heard that this can mess up ones eyes by doing so. I usually sit back far enough from the television to watch it.

Below is a very useful website which is mentioning about the same topic by Canadian Association of Optometrists. http://tv.about.com/od/frequentlyaskedquestions/f/viewingdistance.htm In my advise, we should not watch the monitor continuously for long hour. We should let our eyes rest in the interval and do not try to over stress our eyes' sight.
