No health risk from 3D TV

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

As with many new technologies, the introduction of 3D-Ready televisions came with a health warning from some experts.

It is not the transmission or even the television that was the worry; it was the 3D glasses that were a cause for concern.

According to some experts, the 3D glasses force the eyes to focus on an image that is very close, but at the same time the brain receives images that appear to be further away.

The fear was that this could affect the brain’s processing system.

But Australia-based Prof Colin Clifford, an expert in vision, has stated that the fear of health problems brought on by watching 3D television is not an issue and that the fear was just an extension of concerns associated with interactive entertainment.
