Does sitting close to the t.v. actually hurt your eyes? Second any hints/tips to get him to move back. There are times he is so close I can't see the screen. I'm thinking of putting a tape line where he needs to sit and if he moves closer, t.v. off. Is this too harsh?

I don't know about the eyes but television emits waste that is not healthy for any person....adult or child. So I would prefer limited television time and to sit back at an appropriate distance. My four year old rarely watches television. But when he does his chair is pulled back. If he gets too close - I turn off the t.v. and say: "When you make the choice to sit in your chair you may also choose to watch t.v." Or "Television is not for sitting on so when you move back to your chair you may watch." He doesn't like when he gets special t.v. time and Mom decides to turn it OFF. That is a tear jerker so he always decides to sit in the chair. It really isn't much of an issue. Plus we have a flat screen and I don't want him to pull it over on himself. It is a safety issue all the way around.
