"We will recommend that very young children not look at 3D images," he told the site. "That's because, [in] young children, the muscles for the eyes are not fully formed... This is the same messaging that the industry is putting out with 3D movies, so it is a standard protocol."
I don't recall hearing such a warning before?

Not all those who wander are lost

Hmm, AbiMommy. Maybe it is a more crucial warning for the video game system b/c it is most likely used/viewed on a frequent basis rather than the occasional 3D movie.

Of course, just about every kid movie these days is in 3D. So, in addition to breaking the bank to see them, you risk eye damage

I hadn't heard of the 3D risks before either. Hmmm.
Guess I'm going to put this is the "everything in moderation" category like everything else.

Our family just saw its first 3D movie (previously not available in our area) and we were blown away. It was pretty cool. Can't say its something I'd want to see all the time though. With moderation and just as a "once in awhile treat" I think we'd do it again. I can't see spending that much every time or even wanting to see every movie in 3D. (not that we get to see many movies in the theater to begin with, lol)
