CW33: Baylor Expert Explains Headaches Caused by 3D Movies

Dr. Marvin Hsiao, an ophthalmologist on staff at Baylor Medical Center at Carrollton was interviewed by CW33's health reporter about temporary eye issues caused by viewing 3D movies. Dr. Hsiao says headaches are common for people viewing 3D movies such as Avatar who have a slight alignment problem with their eyes. Minor eye problems, including muscle imbalance can cause a headache and even nausea. Side effects can be especially severe if you are sitting in front of a TV set and watching that type of program for a long period of time. The good news? Dr. Hsiao says the symptoms are only temporary and shouldn’t cause any long-term damage.
