In brief: Myth
Computer screen images are not harmful.
Continuous use can be fatiguing and is commonly dyring. But there is no long term harm possible. Otherwise we eye doctors would crowd around redmond washington (home of microsoft) and set up shop.

Computer users tend to blink less so their eyes are more prone to drying out. Remind yourself to blink often when staring at monitor for hours.
