See ‘Avatar,’ Diagnose Your Vision Problems web article says that 56 percent of people aged 18 to 38 have vision problems that could make it difficult to view 3-D properly. Not everyone’s eyes can perceive perceive the stereo images correctly, and then their brain can’t merge them into one image in 3-D. This can cause a degree of discomfort, such as headaches, when watching 3D movie. That’s alarming news to people pushing 3D TV technology to every home if this figure is true.
I have already known for long time that another 5 percent of the population have problems that make it impossible to view in 3-D. But it was totally new that around half of the young population have some problems with 3D video viewing. The article says that there are therapeutic exercises that can be prescribed that enable some people to gain the ability to see in 3-D, but it won’t work for everyone.
I can imagine something like this happening in the future: A customer has bought a brand new 3D and comes back to shop to complain. The customer says: “I can’t see the image in 3D on this 3D TV you sold to me. The TV must be broken!”. The salesperson says: “There is nothing wrong with the TV. The problem is you. You have to go to therapy to get to see right way and believe that what you see is really 3D. What kind of therapy package you want to buy? I have a good selection of therapy products for this…” Is this imagination or future of the 3D TV?
