3D movies, televisions, gaming systems and phones have exploded onto the market!  This technology appears to be the future direction of entertainment and everyday life.  However, did you know that seeing something in 3D requires a certain level of visual function?  There are many people who may not be able to see 3D images because of visual problems they never knew about.

Shanks Family Eye Care is proud to be a part of the American Optometric Association’s effort to educate patients and the public about 3D vision and eye health!  3D movies and technology can alert people who are unaware of their vision problems to seek eye care.  This helps undetected vision problems be properly addressed and treated.

If you experience discomfort, dizziness or a lack of depth when viewing 3D materials, it is a great idea to schedule an appointment with your eye doctor.  If you have any questions or concerns about 3D vision, please contact Shanks Family Eye Care today.
