3D Technology Revealing Vision Issues

LINCOLN, NE (NET Radio) - Video produced in three dimensions is intended to give the viewer a sense of depth and space that two dimensional video doesn't. State of art technology is putting 3D in front of eyes in more places than ever before. Movies, video games and television can be watched in 3D. Much of it now doesn't require the special 3D glasses of previous generations for the experience. As 3D becomes more common place, optometrists around the state say it could be impacting vision health.

3D has been around for more than 50 years, but when the animated movie Avatar was released about two years ago, it was produced with the latest cameras intended to revolutionize the movie-watching experience. For Omaha optometrist Dr. Corey Langford, it brought two new patients.
