As my optometrist said when I asked the same question:
"You can't damage your eyes by using them"
Your eyes can get tired and you may even develop a slight tick and a headache if you put them under a LOT of strain but it won't damage them. The stereotype of book worms going blind from too many years of reading are just stories.
I have a VERY straining eyeglass prescription and work with computers. My eyes are under a LOT of stress from my job.

No, it won't make you blind
Can eye strain and looking a computer screen for too long cause Nystagmus?
