      3d suitable for those with visual impairment?



      This is not a question about Sky per se, but I am about to buy a new 46" Tv as my 28" screen is not great for me as I have developed a visual impairment.

      However I wonder if it is wise to buy an HD TV , as the vision in one eye is very poor, and the 3D glasses I suspect would not work for me.


      Or is this not an issue? Will I need to use 3D glasses at all. Do 3D Tvs have an option to turn 3D on or off?

      TIA

      3D TVs only operate as such when viewing a 3D transmission, so not need to worry about that, most programs are still 2D. The point is if you don't really want 3D, why buy a 3D set, you could probably get a larger or better quality 2D for the same price.

      Thanks fir the answer. The only reason I a, tninking of buying 3D is that all the best bargains 46" TVs for around 500 seem t have it.

      My eyes arn't all that clever but with my 50" pansonic you still need the hd as for 3D hardly ever use it.
