      Re: Sky confirms 70,000 homes sign up to Sky 3D

      Whilst watching Avatar at the Cinema, my friend got dizzy during the scenes where they showed the height of the floating islands. He has a few problems with heights.

      With regards to people getting headaches, etc., I suspect that there is an issue either with their vision or their brain. I know that some epileptics suffer with flashing lights at the wrong frequencies. They can also suffer between CRT TVs and flatscreen TVs.

      It may be worth getting your eyes checked to see it you need glasses, or perhaps there is another issue underneath.

      There are several different methods of projecting 3D images on the TVs. It is probably a good idea to look at the different ones available and see if the shop can swap your TV if you are having issues with a particular model.

      hmmm.... vin Rouge...

      Seriously though, if you need glasses to view the TV under normal conditions, then the glasses supplied with the TV for the 3D effect should also be prescription ones. This alone would be a good reason for anyone getting headaches.

      Knowing that the 3D glasses are expensive in their own right, if it were possible to obtain prescription lenses for 3D glasses, then the cost would be between 100 & 300.

      It used to be possible to purchase special stick-on lenses for SCUBA masks. I wonder if something similar is available for 3D glasses? These were considerably cheaper.

      You should have gone to Specsavers, recommended by Scottish football referees.

      I sign up to sky 3D brought a 3D tv and sent it back the TV as three out of 4 of us could not watch long because eye problems.

      This is interesting, thank you totalwar.

      Would anyone consider the need to wear glasses as a form of disability?

      I've just completed a quick search on-line for 3D glasses with corrective lenses. Admittedly not truly comprehensive, but I would have expected at least one hit.

      I don't have any figures to show just how many people in the UK, but I would expect it to be quite significant.

      It might be worth challenging the TV manufacturers to start producing glasses with corrective lenses for those who need glasses for the 3D televisions. Not everyone can wear contact lenses.

      In case anyone is worried though, if you were to return the TV, as in the above example, you are fully covered by the Sale of Goods Act as the 3D TV isn't fit for purpose.

      I thought the idea was you wore the 3D glasses on top on any 'normal' glasses. That's what my friends and family do who wear glasses.
