Technology gives rise to "3-D Vision Syndrome"

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- 3-D TVs and movies may be all the rage in Hollywood, but for many people they can cause a raging headache!

Here's the problem: two separate images are shown to each eye to create the illusion of depth in a 3-D effect.

Some people have trouble making their eye muscles work together to see and process those images correctly.

The strain can leave them with what doctors are calling "3-D Vision Syndrome."

Anywhere from two to six percent of people are affected, but the problem often remains masked until they watch something in 3-D.
