Doctors think 3DS is Ok for Kids

by | @AttackFanboy | on January 6, 2011

Nintendo issued a statement recently about the potential dangers to kids under a certain age when using the 3D functionality of the Nintendo 3DS.  Apparently, eye doctors disagree with Nintendo’s warning.

In a recent New York Times article, top ophthalmologists agreed that there is little scientific evidence supporting these warnings.

A Dr. Lawrence Tychsen, at Washington University in St. Louis, conducted research on monkeys that watched 3D television of the glasses needed variety for three months straight and they didnt seem to have any vision problems.

Nor did they develop eye conditions that deviated from the monkeys that did not observe the 3D screens.
