In brief: Eye strain

Our eyes are designed to see things in 3d.
When you look at a computer/book etc for a long time (a 2d surface) you can strain your eyes or get dry eyes. Every 20 minutes rest your eyes for 20 seconds by looking at something at least 20 feet away.

In brief: Various

Eyes were meant for using, but with a lot of small screen near work, can get more myopia, eye fatigue/strain, dry eye, etc.
