What if you can't see in 3D?
Up to 12% of the population can’t revel in the new trendy 3D deal. Either they can’t get the “effect” or they get it but it causes headaches and nausea.
The latter cuts into popcorn sales.
This is known as being stereo-blind. People with vision in only one eye, like your correspondent here, are affected. Other eye disorders can also cause it.
If you only have sight in one eye, don’t wear the glasses.
Can you learn to see in 3D? There is a book out called FIXING MY GAZE by Susan R. Barry that discusses this.
Pretty soon, though, 3D will be everyplace and glasses won’t even be needed. What then for the poor afflicted?
