  • 56. So is the 3D Vision Syndrome Really a Syndrome? Yes.The symptoms and signs consistentlyinclude: headaches, nausea, dizziness, avision induced sense of motion, diplopia,blurred vision and eyestrain; as well as adisconnect between accommodation andvergence.
  • 57. The 3D’s of 3D Viewing:Discomfort, Dizziness and Lack of Depth Discomfort: Since 3D viewing is based on the eyes converging in front of or beyond the screen, viewing 3D images can potentially create eyestrain and headaches

  • 59. The 3D’s of 3D Viewing:Discomfort, Dizziness and Lack of DepthLack of Depth:A viewer lacking binocularvision, simply won‟t see 3D.While this doesn‟t pose anyproblem viewing the screen, itserves as a “vision screening”that something is abnormalwith the viewer‟s binocularvision.

The scientific basis for and efficacy of optometric visiontherapy in nonstrabismic accommodative and vergence disorders.Optometry. 2002 Dec;73(12):735-62.BACKGROUND:For nearly 75 years, optometric vision therapy has been an important mode oftherapy for both children and adults who manifested a range of nonstrabismicaccommodative and vergence disorders.METHODS:In this article, the scientific basis for, and efficacy of, optometric vision therapyin such patients will be discussed. Using bio-engineering models of theoculomotor system as the conceptual framework, emphasis will be focused onstudies that used objective recording techniques to directly assesstherapeutically related changes in oculomotor responsivity.RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS:The findings clearly support the validity ofoptometric vision therapy. Furthermore, theresults are consistent with the tenets of generalmotor learning.
