3D Hurts Your Eyes

Rjcc Re:i posted a story about this a few months ago (244 comments)

OH ok, sure. So your rumor from some crackpot >>>>> actual eye doctors.

I thought when you asked for sources that you were actually interested in the facts, when really you were just going to believe whatever appealed to the views you already held.

Cool.

Oh, wow, I just clicked on my profile, it had the old address of our site. I guess in my 10 year slashdot commenting hiatus I forgot to update the URL. I updated it to my Engadget profile, thanks.

3D Hurts Your Eyes

Rjcc Re:The study actually doesn't say that, read it. (244 comments)

The problem is most people read the abstract and didn't give even a cursory glance to the study.

It took me about 5 seconds of reading to realize the TC and AT blog posts were way off, i have no idea how they got published.

Thanks for your comments. Have you ever read the warning label on a PlayStation 3 or an Xbox 360 concerning regular old 2D video?

Go do it, I expect you'll find it to be quite illuminating.

3D Hurts Your Eyes

Rjcc Re:i posted a story about this a few months ago (244 comments)

No, I'm a human being who has talked to optometrists about this subject in order to research it for my articles.

I don't get paid by anyone to support or knock 3D, I do get paid to find out and report the facts. My name and my association are in my first comment on this thread, if you missed them.

3D Hurts Your Eyes

"The reasoning against having kids watch 3D content is because their eyes aren't far enough apart yet."

Provide a source, now. Plenty of other animals have great 3D vision with eye spacing CLOSER than that of a human child.

Are you just being purposely obtuse or are you just that retarded?

Human beings aren't other animals, and becuase kids don't have adult sized heads, 3D video isn't created with them in mind

Deeper explanation of how 3D sight develops:

http://www.eye-patch-info.com/eyesight-test.html

American Optometric Association
http://3deyehealth.org/faq.html
At what age can my child view 3D safely?

Answer:

Vision, including binocular vision, develops from birth. No detrimental effects of viewing 3D have been reported at any age. Parents should note that from 6-12 months of age, basic binocularity is established. By the age of 3 years most children will have binocular vision well enough established to enjoy viewing 3D television, movies or games.

"A child's eyes begin to develop most crucially between the ages of 6 months to 6 years. It's at this time that the two eyes learn to coordinate and that the child can perceive 3D objects. In fact, from the age of 6 months the eyes themselves are as physically developed as in adults."

You're welcome.

>simulated 2D does not in anyway ask our eyes to behave as they haven't behaved in tens of millions of years of evolution. do you understand logic and reason?

It's a simple fact that it does. You choosing not to acknowledge that, shows where your argument starts from -- hating 3D, not not taking a clear look at how vision works.

3D Hurts Your Eyes

Rjcc Re:i posted a story about this a few months ago (244 comments)

This is all entirely dependent on what you're watching. 2D video changes focus too, however it usually doesn't do it too quickly or too often because --- evidence has shown that causes viewers discomfort.

Sit around and watch some 2D shakycam footage with some idiot constantly changing focus from close up to far away and tell me your eyes don't get tired.

I'm not saying 3D doesn't make your eyes work, I am saying it is not a 3D exclusive problem.

What is that google search supposed to show?

I have facts and doctors to support what I said. You have incorrect blog posts.

Clearly, it's my emotion that's getting in the way, not information and research.

LOL. Did you read it?

There was no evidence to support it.

3D Hurts Your Eyes

Rjcc Re:i posted a story about this a few months ago (244 comments)

The problem is your argument doesn't make sense. The idea that watching simulated motion is any more natural than simulated 3D is silly, false and entirely without proof. The fact is many people have problems watching simulated motion too, will that never work?

That you tied your earlier argument to this post, which is entirely incorrect, provides more reason to believe you'll just go along with anything anti-3D whether or not it's true.

If you want to approach this logically, please do, i'm still waiting.

3D Hurts Your Eyes

Rjcc Re:i posted a story about this a few months ago (244 comments)

Oh yeah, and this:

"there is also some concern that very young eyes, that are still developing, can actually be permanently harmed by 3D"

also not true. Doctors actually believe watching 3D video can help diagnose vision problem in children while they're young and can still be fixed. The reasoning against having kids watch 3D content is because their eyes aren't far enough apart yet.

Rjcc Re:i posted a story about this a few months ago (244 comments)

Well, obviously it's true because you said it, since there's no other evidence to support that claim.

Also, you didn't answer my question. At any point before motion pictures did anyone's eyes have to watch still images and pretend they were moving?

Unnatural things only seem to bother you (and Ebert following syncophants) when they have to do with 3D.

The only thing that makes less sense than thinking these two stories are relevant, is believing in the one you posted above.

Explain how millions of years of evolution prepared our eyes to watch still images flashed rapidly in succession to create the illusion of moving pictures.

I'll wait.

3D Hurts Your Eyes

Rjcc The study actually doesn't say that, read it. (244 comments)

TechCrunch (Along with Ars Techinca and others) got it completely wrong.

http://www.engadget.com/2011/07/22/samsung-studies-3d-viewing-discomfort-finds-out-bloggers-dont/

If you read the study, and not the abstract, you'd know they didn't actually watch any 3D. They tested different situations of focusing on various objects to find out WHY some 3D hurts peoples eyes. They did not "find that 3D hurts your eyes" becuase that's not what they were looknig for.

In fact, they discovered the comfortable range for 3D viewing is wider than previously thought.

But you have to actually read the study to know that. - link to the study: http://www.journalofvision.org/content/11/8/11.full

If you hate 3D, hate 3D, but actually read the article before throwing your two cents in.
