3D movies can make some people sick

Posted:

(KWWL) -- 3D movies have been around for a long time now, and with blockbuster hits like "Avatar" and "Toy Story 3" in 3D, we're sure to be seeing more and more of these in-your-face type movies.

But doctors say, 3D isn't for everyone. For people with Lateral Phoria, it can make them sick.

That's because the eyes have trouble focusing on 3D images. Studies show about three percent of people who watch 3D movies experience vision problems.

Doctors say an eye exam should help patients figure out if they'll have problems with 3D.

He says a simple prescription for glasses or contacts can alleviate any eye trouble.
