That is what I was referring to. Headaches as well if you did it for long enough. No different to staring at a computer screen all day. I have the feeling though that non wildlife photographers don't really understand what we mean by staring through the viewfinder for hours on end. For me it often means maybe 5min off the viewfinder for a couple hours looking through it. Hard enough without an electronic screen messing with you eyes.I don’t know about It’s been bad for your eyes, i.e. damage, but I have lamented elsewhere that with extended use it causes eye fatigue and soreness.
