It’s been some time since I’ve offered a posting on the topic of 3D and vision health, so please allow me to take a brief side journey back to the world of optometry and the importance of 3D in vision health. It is important to revisit this theme because the negative mythology associated with 3D is still so stubbornly apparent.
In fact, just this last week I read a movie review, written by a well-known critic, who repeated two stubborn myths:
- "How uncomfortable cardboard 3D glasses are." (Folks, we don’t use those any more); and
- "I get headaches when viewing 3D" (My dear friend, read the research. Such symptoms serve as an indicator of an underlying vision problem, one which can be successfully addressed by your optometrist or vision therapist)
In combatting these unfortunate misconceptions, we need every good story we can find. And here are two good stories, worth your time:
These stories give you a reason to teach with the 3D tools you’ve come to love or sell the 3D resources you sell. These stories help dispel the stubborn myth that 3D is somehow harmful. One story, one miracle at a time—we will see the change.
