Ok, can the 3D slider really hurt a child's vision?

Don't worry dude (or dudette). It's been stated multiple times that it doesn't damage the eyes, they just put the restriction to avoid lawsuits and stuff like that.


Except that it actually CAN cause long-term damage if a child under the age of 6 plays it a lot. It's not just an arbitrary warning, it's a legitimate risk. Their eyes are still developing.

TC, just tell your kid if she wants to play she needs to keep the 3D feature off till she's a little older.

But really, a lot of things cause damage to eyesight. The 3DS is just a brand new form of eye-damaging interface. Extended reading in dim light or text that is too small, overexposure to computer screens, small video games or just video games in general, anything that makes the eyes work harder can potentially damage one's eyes. It's been proven again and again. The risk is higher in small kids because their eyes are still developing. Hence the warning.


Reference from an expert, please? Because I've seen experts claiming that it's completely safe.

Yes, if you take it off your 3DS and stick it in their eyes.

There are tests that actually show it can help younger children's eyes develop better. None that show that it harms them.
