Wonderful news, everyone! While our members have been confident about this for years, Gamasutra ran a story today with positive opinions shared by Dr. Mark Borchert, a respected L.A.-based ophthalmologist with the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
Similar to the old wives tale that your eyes and face could be stuck in funny positions if you cross your eyes too much, Dr. Borchert confirms:
“It’s (3D) not likely to cause any permanent harm to vision…There are people who get uncomfortable with it, and get eye strain or headaches, or on much rarer occasions, a sense of imbalance or nausea, but there’s no evidence it can cause permanent harm to your vision or use of both eyes together or anything like that.”
He did not have a certain opinion for young children, but modern 3D technology is not being recommended to very young children as it is. Please share your remarks below!
For those who heard about the U-Decide Iniitative and haven’t made their submission yet, better get on it! The first time we did this in 2009, we had over 700 respondants. With over 50 prizes up for grabs, including a 3D HDTV…the chances for winning something are pretty good. Don’t miss out!
