Since the introduction of 3D screen technology and 3D movies, we have been attracted to theatres and everything connected with 3D technology. But no one ever thought of why a headache occurs after viewing 3d content. Why does one feel fatigue or visual discomfort after viewing 3D content?
A Research Team at University Of California, Berkley conducted a research on 24 adults and determined that 3D content hurts both your eyes and brain. The medical term used for this is ‘vergence-accomodation’. To view 3D content, the eyes must adjust accordingly and constantly to both screen and distance of the 3D content which puts unnecessary work on eyes and extra burden on your brain.
