I don't think they will hurt people's eyes, even for ages 6 and under. http://kotaku.com/5725770/doctors-say-the-3ds-is-safe-potentially-beneficial-to-children
They might put strain on them or make you sick/dizzy, but that's uncommon.

just treat it the same as any other electronic device.

no one really knows as there's never been a long term study on glasses free 3D since it's a newer technology. we'll all find out in 3 or 4 years. --- http://i.imgur.com/SuQlr.jpg -

^ I'd say it's more common than uncommon haha. I'm young with 20/20 and very good eyes in general and even I tend to get headaches on occasion from the 3DS. It gets easier as you play more and more but it's tough to pull long sessions (which I rarely do anyways). But no, it won't cause any eye damage at all. --- 5372 0620 2714 - Pokemon White FC Always looking for some foreign traders outside of the US, legit PKMN only!
