Yeah it makes my eyes feel itchy on full day exposure to the screen but with 3hrs a day there's no harm.

This is why I only read the e-ink readers. I find that the glossy surface and light gives me headaches. I want it to read just like a book.

I don't know if they damage your eyes, but if you suffer from migraines then I don't recommend them at all.

I have heard that even reading on paper can harm your eyes. It hasn't stopped me from reading.

Most screens give out blue rays which are damaging to the eyes ...... If you have protection layer over the screen then you are safe

I don't know for certain but the problem is e-reading is the light at close proximity might tire your eyes or cause it to dry out from having it fixed at one position since we can adjust the screen so that we barely move our eyes, which makes our muscles exercise less. There is also that blue light hinders melatonin production which is an important sleep hormone but that applies to all light in general. Anyways, since there is no evidence that this can make u go blind, if u feel comfortable reading like that, if u have adjusted the perfect brightness and font size, go ahead and have fun. your eyes hurting is a sign that something is wrong, if it doesn't hurt you are "kinda" on the safe side

I think if you take the usual precautions like distance from the screen or use of anti glare screen you should be fine.

I think it'll be damaging if you read for a very long time without resting your eyes.
