Is staring at my computer screen all day during work bad for my eyes?

I mostly work off my computer while at work during the day. All this staring at my computer screen makes me worried that I may strain my eyes. How often should I step away from my computer screen and give my eyes a break to prevent any possible vision problems?

Great advice, Susan! I'm  working off my laptop most of the time during the day and worry that it will cause eye strain and other eye problems later in life. 

I'll try resting my eyes every now and then, and pushing my screen a little further away from my eyes. Thanks for the tips! :)
