Millions Of Americans May Suffer From Vision Issues Making 3-D Films Difficult To Watch

The Wall Street Journal (5/18, Valentino-DeVries) “Digits” blog reported that, according to the American Optometric Association, an estimated three million to nine million Americans suffer from vision issues which make it difficult or even impossible for them to view 3-D television shows and movies. While some people get eyestrain from watching 3-D films, others become dizzy, nauseated, and experience headaches. The AOA suggests that people having difficulty with 3-D films should see their optometrist for evaluation of possible dysfunction in their binocular vision.
