In brief: Not harmful

Prolonged computer use is drying to the eyes which is probably why they are red.
It will not cause permanent harm to the eyes. It is helpful to keep a bottle of lubricating drops next to the computer. At your age, you might consider some other recreation especially one that substitutes for the gym or broadens the mind.
