The entertainment industry continues to produce films and programs in a three-dimensional version, while viewers complain of eye fatigue, nausea, dizziness and headache.
From the Hollywood film studios to the world’s leading manufacturers of televisions, business tycoons are betting that 3D technology will be the future of entertainment, despite the greatest weakness – millions of people feel discomfort and nausea due to the image you see in this way.
At least one person out of four people, reports the AP claims optometrists, had problems because of watching 3D movies – eye fatigue, difficulty in depth perception, nausea, dizziness and headache.
Aware of the shortcomings of the technology, entertainment industry continues to rapidly create films and programs in the 3D version. Some producers believe that this is a revolutionary innovation that occurred in the cinema and viewers from the appearance of color. Manufacturers of television and cinema owners spend over a billion dollars in upgrading the 3D technology, a number of TV stations already broadcast in this technology. Last year in the U.S. market first emerged 3D TVs, but the interest of consumers, it turned out, was not large. Delivered less than the predicted 1.6 million in the territory of North America. Regardless of this, manufacturers continued to throw into the market new models that are more expensive than ordinary and they, as well as in cinemas, needed glasses.
Research on how 3D effect on the viewers were still in the beginning. One American Internet survey shows that 25 percent of Americans have experienced headaches, blurred vision or nausea watching screens in this technology. Samsung is on its Australian website warned that 3D television can cause nausea, disorientation, eye strain and imbalance.
Doctors say that their patients after seeing the hit film “Avatar” complained of eyestrain or can not see three-dimensional effect, as five to 10 percent of people have no ability to form deep and therefore can not follow this new technology. The most vulnerable are those who normally would have a problem to align both eyes. “If you are from those who are sick and tired while driving, you are one of them,” explains doctors.
And the filmmakers were hesitant in the application of 3D in order to reduce eye strain. They try to most parts of the scene, such as the face of the actor, are at the same distance from the viewer as the screen which is much more acceptable to the eyes. That approach, however, limits the freedom of film makers and does not solve the problem. Scientists have begun to develop a new version that would be some of these problems resolve, but it will take years or decades, while the enhanced version is available to the masses.
Until he found a durable solution, or remain spectators to avoid a three-dimensional television or in theaters sit as far away from the screen, or rather, to watch with one eye, and the second paragraph of the patch.
