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.

"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:

American Optometric Association
At what age can my child view 3D safely?


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.

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.

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.
