    Question dangerous to your eyesight or harmful to your eyesight?

    hello, which one is correct?
    dangerous to your eyesight or harmful to your eyesight or body


    Moreover, is the following sentence correct:

    astronauts take photos of the other planets and give it back to the earth.

    Furthermore, I wonder whether watching an English film along with its subtitle would be of great value for improving my English or I should not notice the subtitles. I would be thankful if you help me on this issue.

    'harmful' is better, but 'dangerous' is not wrong.
    'Dangerous' would be used for something more dramatic. Eg:
    Reading in poor light could be harmful to your sight.
    Staring directly at the sun for any length of time is dangerous to your sight.

    Moreover, is the following sentence correct:

    astronauts take photos of the other planets and give it back to the earth.
    send them back


    Furthermore, I wonder whether watching an English film along with its subtitle would be of great value for improving my English or I should not notice the subtitles. I would be thankful if you help me on this issue.
    The issue of watching foreign films with subtitles depends on many factors.
    If you are a beginner, subtitles are very useful. If you're more advanced, you might learn more without the distraction of subtitles.
    Also, there is a lot of individual variation - whatever you find most beneficial is the thing to do.
    (I don't know what the scientific literature says about this).
