3D Viewing Causes Eye Strain


A University of California Berkeley study determined that watching 3D movies could cause eye strain, especially in younger viewers. Professor of Optometry Martin Banks says that it is because we are looking at things close and far away (convergence accommodation conflict) at the same time. We still think that watching Avatar was worth a couple of hours of strain, don't you?

Charlie Rose Makes Us Crave "Avatar"

If you watch PBS with any regularity, then you have surely heard of Charlie Rose. We don't think there is anyone he hasn't interviewed in the realm of the arts and politics, and masterfully so. Watching him with James Cameron December 17 discussing "Avatar" convinced us even more to run right out to see the 3D movie. While we are waiting for some of the hoopla to die down before our own viewing, let us know if you have seen it and your impressions of the technology that took 10 years to come to fruition.
