eye pain/headache when watching tv

hello,
Although I sit over 25ft away from the TV and I reduce the brightness down to 30%, Pressure builds up usually on my left eye after watching the TV for 2 hours.  This triggers a dull headache which moves unto the other eye area, i feel also tenderness at the same time from the base at the back of the head. I need some help ASAP

You sit 25 FEET away from your television?  Have you actually measured this?  I would suggest that you stop watching television.
