French Group Issues Warning
Children under 6 years old shouldn't have access to 3D content, warns the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety, or Anses. The group issued their warning after reviewing research on the potential impact of 3D imaging on young, still-developing eyes. Anses believes that processing the 3D effect requires eyes to view images in two separate places at the same time before the brain can translate what it sees into one image. The groups warns that this "vergence-accommodation conflict" may be more severe for young children since their visual system is still developing.
