Improvements in the theater 3-D movie experience have sparked a surge of 3-D movie releases, as well as initiating the home 3-D movie experience.

3-D is definitely going to be a big part of the home theater future.
Television will become more immersive or life-like in its experience, as 3-D capability comes to Blu-ray Disc and flat-screen television over the next decade. You or someone you know may already be experiencing some frustration with 3-D viewing, perhaps experiencing headaches, stomach aches, motion sickness, boredom, or simply wondering what everyone is oohing and aahing about when watching 3-D films.
Unfortunately, some of the recommendations being made to viewers to improve their home theater 3-D viewing experience actually run counter to some behavioral optometrists’ recommendations for good visual hygiene (daily practices for healthy eyes).
To view stereo images (in 3-D movies, 3-D posters, pictures, book etc.), your two eyes must be working together simultaneously as a coordinated team for success.
If you are having trouble seeing 3-D, this might mean you have problems with your Binocular (two eyes co-ordinating together) Vision or Stereo Vision (3-D vision). Vision Therapy can help you work toward successful 3-D viewing.
