3D Viewing, Is It Safe?

A lot of people are concerned about 3D viewing and if it is safe for the eyes. According to statistics, 10% of people in the world develop headaches and eye-strains whilst watching in 3D. Is this true?

Let’s start off with a fact. 3D viewing does not cause any permanent damage to the eyes, health or body. The lenses in our eyes are the most sophisticated in the world. Lens companies are constantly trying to replicate this level of complexity and sophistication into their own artificial lenses. Our eyes naturally allow us 3D vision from which we can determine approximate distances. 3D image visuals are not bad for the eyes.

The main difference from what your eyes naturally sees compared to what’s projected at the cinema or TVs is that, the 3D images are simulated. This can put new demands and strains on the eyes as it is an unnatural 3D image. The main problem is that the focus of your eyes is constantly shifting between vergence and accommodation requirements. This basically means your eyes have to work extra hard trying to reprocess a 3D visual simulation in a way your eyes and mind can understand, thus straining the eyes and mind with an unnatural demand.

Conventional tests were completed in a research that monitored patients viewing 3D. Findings showed that of those that complained of headaches and eyestrain, their results didn’t highlight any particular area that differed to those who were fine after the viewing. This basically means that viewing in 3D has the same effect on everyone, just that some people feel the strain or dizziness/headaches more than others.

Most people can cope with viewing in 3D and adapt reasonably well. Watching 3D visuals for a short period for most people is fine. The problem is that most movies last at least an hour and a half with no breaks. Still, there have been no permanent injuries reported from watching 3D. Special 3D glasses will make no difference compared to those you can purchase or given freely at cinemas. So yes, watching in 3D is fine but for those who do feel the effects of eye strain more than others, it is recommended to avoid 3D until a more sophisticated 3D spectacle has been made available.
