In the News…… 3-D Vision and Health Symposium

There has been a lot of news about the effects of 3D viewing devices on the eyes, especially the eyes of young children.

Through a joint effort of the American Optometric Association and the 3D@Home Consortium, prominent filmmakers and vision researchers will hold a first-of-its-kind symposium on the topic at SUNY College of Optometry, next Tuesday, March 15.

As a practitioner, you may find the symposium interesting and have some compelling questions for the panelists about how the optometric profession can help patients better enjoy 3D viewing, and discuss those eye conditions that can compromise the viewing experience.

The event is free. Find further details and register at
