Would anyone feel cheated if they realized they couldn't see the 3D effect?

My girl friend can't use it. She can't see very well out of one eye, and when it comes to 3d the effect blurs out for her. I feel really bad for her for it because I know she'd love the 3d.

That sucks, I always complain about my nearsighted eyes, but the fact is a contact lens or my prescription glasses make me me 20/20 in both eyes. People with one "bad" eye have it worse.

And then there's the blind. But yeah, tuen down the slider when you're girlfriend is around or she'll it all blurred and doubled.

Couldn't your girl friend get a single contact lens to help balance (correct) her eyesight?

Heh there are two types of eye problems basically.

One is focus/optical power. The vast majority of people with glasses/contacts have normal healthy eyes, except for the fact that they have the wrong optical power in their eye. So glasses/contacts have an optical power in the opposite direction to cancel out the problem.

His girlfriend has an actual eye problem, where the eye physically doesn't work right. It's either lazy eye or something worse. Basically no contact lens or glasses will magically make it see right, the eye itself isn't healthy.

Glasses don't fix your eyes, they just cancel out the optical power of your eye. My eyes for instance are +2.25 each, which means that a -2.25 lens in front of my eye (concave lens) makes my eye at 0, and thus 20/20 vision.

Maybe something like that can help your girlfriend.

For those that don't want to check the link:
Here's a bit of good videogame news to start your work week out with. A child from Billericay, Essex, had his eyesight saved by playing Mario Kart for two hours every day. Six-year-old Ben Michaels suffered from amblyopia, a severe lazy eye syndrome, in his right eye from the age of four. His doctor recommended him to a specialist who in turned recommended he played Mario Kart on his DS for two hours every day while wearing a patch over his dominant eye. This would, evidently, strengthen the weakened eye.

Heh, a good doctor. Doing something that makes sense. An other "professional" would have given the kid some expensive medication instead.

People who's eyes have been damaged by some type of accident or something can now have them healed because of stem cell research. She should do that.
