News – 12% of brains can’t process 3D images

According to The Eyecare Trust, 1 in 10 people are unable to actually see those fancy 3D images that everyone keeps talking about. This is apparently because these people have a visual impairment (poor binocular vision) in which their eyes aren’t working together properly, leaving their brains to not produce the desired 3D effect. Instead, such people have headaches and eye discomfort, which obviously isn’t good when playing games or viewing films in 3D.

Luckily, according to The Eyecare Trust, such eye complaints are easily detected by a visit to the opticians, and a new pair of glasses or eye therapy can do the job.

Personally my optician visits are up to date, but being able to afford a 3D TV is another matter entirely.
