since almost everything is in 3D now, will it damage you eyes if you use it for a long time

Probably not, but it will probably hurt if played immensely.

Yea. I believe it would cause decent amount of eye strain/stress if you've got the 3D cranked all the way up. I'm sure if you use it moderately low or below the half way mark you won't get too much strain.

Any speculation at this point is simply that. It's all conjecture and guesswork. None of us have the 3DS, and there have been no studies on its effects.

The correct answer to your question is: We don't know.

The longest duration of playing one single game on the 3DS I had at E3 was about 12 minutes, and while I felt no strain in that small amount of time, it seemed to feel a bit better to turn the 3D down to about half setting on the slider.

Doubtful, but it does seem like 3D could possibly hinder a child's sight development, which is why they advise not to let children watch it.

I think the 3D slider right in the middle will be the sweetspot for many people..

No studies on the effects?
The technology is already out though, and uses stereoscopic, which have been around forever.
