Any kind of movie is pouring into the 3D market, how can animation not participate! However, when you go to the cinema with your children in high spirits and prepare to see a 3D visual feast, have you ever thought about whether 3D movies are suitable for children?

Watching 3D movies under 10 may affect eye development

Xia Jiangsheng, deputy chief physician of pediatric ophthalmology in Fuzhou southeast ophthalmic hospital, said last week that he received two teenage children because he watched a 3D movie for an hour and a half, which resulted in eye discomfort. One of them has amblyopia, but the symptoms of both are not serious and have recovered after treatment.

Xia Jiangsheng said that people with well-developed stereo vision have better effect in watching 3D films, while people with poor stereoscopic function, even if they wear 3D glasses, do not necessarily see the three-dimensional effect clearly, or even easily cause visual fatigue.

“Children under the age of 10, especially those with severe amblyopia, should try to watch less 3D movies.” Xia Jiangsheng said that for children under 10 years old, the eye muscles and visual system are not mature. If you watch 3D images frequently, it may affect the normal development of the eyes.

Xiong Lichun, deputy chief ophthalmologist of Fujian maternal and child health care hospital and Xie Maosong, chief ophthalmologist of the First Affiliated Hospital of Fujian Medical University, both said that at present, there is no detailed clinical research report on the damage of 3D films to children’s eyes, but children should watch as little as possible.

In addition, some instructions for 3D TV sets also remind children to watch movies. For example, Toshiba reminded in the manual of its 3D TV: “as 3D images may have adverse effects on children, it is recommended that children under 6 years old not use this product.” Samsung also specially reminds its 3D TV users that compared with adults, children are more likely to have symptoms such as blurred consciousness, nausea, muscle twitching and spasm. Therefore, young children should be accompanied by their parents when watching 3D TV.

It was also noted that Italy’s supreme Health Care Commission had issued a ban on children under 6 years old from wearing 3D glasses to watch 3D movies, on the grounds that “children with underdeveloped eyes may cause strabismus, amblyopia and other vision problems if they use 3D glasses”.

Therefore, the child too small to see 3D movie, has the damage to the vision development! I hope parents will be cautious. If you want to know more about children’s home electric shock prevention knowledge, this website has a lot of relevant knowledge for you to find, hope to help you!
