when i watch a drama or TV series that i'm very much into,i would be concentrating on the screen, but your eyes can't stand it for continuously watching~ is there any easy way to relax your eyes? staring green things or looking far away? any good ideas?

It depends. Sometimes my eyes can stay okay for 4 hours. Sometimes just one hours. Sometimes 2 hours. Sometimes my eyes hurt and my head aches too. So I just take a break when my head starts to ache.

I think people should take a break when watching television, reading or spending time on the computer. These things are hard on our eyes. Eye strain can cause people to lose their eye sight. I try to take a break every hour by doing anything that doesn't require using my eyes like laying down, relaxing in a chair, taking a bubble tab or listening to music.

If you are watching TV, or browsing websites on the Internet, don't forget to blink your eyes from time to time. It will certainly ease the strain and will really help you prevent eye damage.

I work in customer service, so I am staring and working in dual computer monitors for at least 8 hours a day 5 days a week, sometimes 6 days a week. It doesn't bother me, but I have seen some of my coworkers, moving the screen, tilting it back a little, or changing the intensity of illumination, making it a little darker. I have also watched TV series online, 24, Desperate Housewives, Army Wives and more, again I don't feel it hurts my eyes. They also sell screen covers, they look like filters to place on top of the screen to filter some of the light, that may help also. Hope it helps!

for me I'm using the 20 20 20 rules. Every 20 minutes starring at monitor, took of 20 seconds off with 20 blinks. It will give proper moist to your eyes.

My eyes will stay fresh for five or six hours while browsing the internet, more than it they will get red and I'll fall asleep . Usually I wash my face or just pinch my cheecks or my thigh. It helps me to stay awake and relax . I used to ask my friend to pinch me when I was sleepy in the class

That's what I do actually. I stare far away. It compensates for your having looked too close to the monitor for some time. But I also make it a point to rest my eyes every 30 minutes or so by closing them for a minute if I know I'd be staring at the monitor for quite a while. I'm not sure if this really helps for everybody but it does for me.
