I’m not sure what gives you that assumption..

Actually, eyeglasses are not the same; they refocus light into your eye, and you actually see through them, so the eyes still converge and focus on the same point in space like they’re supposed to. A VR or 3-D film experience forces your eyes to focus on a fixed point in space (the screen) but to falsely converge at another point in space in order to make out the three-dimensional image and its corresponding depth.

Additionally, one person’s experience does not make science. There are numerous anecodotal complaints of patients who get headaches from watching 3-D films and VR for lengthy periods. It’s one thing to watch a 90-minute film, but to be playing a game for more than a couple of hours hours with a 3-D viewer where the eyes must converge multiple times per minute, if not second, is another matter.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
