Can staring at screens really damage your eyes?

I think I might be experiencing the effects of damage because every time I turn off the light, I can't see in the dark and I sometimes my vision gets taken up by flashes of light and these like static like light things.

I have actually been staring at my screen for along time, but witha blue light filter. I'm not sure what's happening though. Please help.

Update:

Could some of the photoreceptor cells in my eye be dead?

Update 2:

I can see perfectly in daylight, but at night I can't make out objects.

Update 3:

The effects can last a whole night, but the flashing stops. My normal vision in the dark has these stiples of light. I am 21. The stiples make it hard to see in the dark.

    If something is happening to your eyes, I don't think this has anything to so with screens that you're watching. At least I have never read anything like that. They said the same thing about  TV in the 1960s-- I remember that.

    How LONG dao these affect linger after you turn of the light and how old are you? Because this makes a difference. But I also bet the same effect for a few minutes.

    But I don't think it haw any thing to do with your  viewing habits
