Unfortunately I do. My left eye is fine but my right eye has horrible astigmatism. So bad I'm not even eligible for LASIK. If I close my left eye I'm as blind as a bat. It really sucks because I wish I could see it but alas....

Anyone in a similar position?

My eyesight isn't anywhere near that bad. I can actually get away without glasses or contacts for things up close (and if I wore them, my vision literally is the same). Just once stuff gets about 10 feet away or more, my vision is blurry. So, yeah, I can see the 3D. I don't think you're missing anything in not being able to see it.

However, I'm incredibly biased against it. The 3D gives me a headache very quickly after turning it on. I'm pretty sure it's a motion sickness related thing, because I get similar headaches if I read in a car and such. So I leave it permanently off.

A life of misadventures has left me with retinal scarring in my right eye... it can be treated, but is extremely expensive... I can sort of kind of see the 3D from the 3DS but not well. I'm lucky I can memorize the eye chart for the driver's license exam. Left eye, fine. Right eye, a big blur.

My eyes are so bad I'm blind.

I can see the 3D, but I have diplopia (double vision) and the 3D is too much added stress on my eye. I usually cover one eye to prevent seeing double and trying to painfully focus it into one image, so the 3D effect is lost on me anyways.

I can see it, but the 3D effect causes me to have incredibly painful eye muscle spasms and migraine level headaches.

I've never been able to see much of anything out of my left eye. If I were to close my right eye I could probably avoid crashing into walls, but that'd be about it. I did have surgery a few years back to get lenses implanted in my eyes (basically contacts that you never have to change) that in combination with glasses gives me enough vision to drive, and I don't need to wear glasses anymore for anything else.
I still can't see muhc out of my left eye though -_- not enough for 3D anyway. It dosen't bother me too much though.

I have pretty much perfect vision, but for some reason I can't see 3D effects that well. The only game I played where it didn't hurt my eyes was Resident Evil Revelations, and even in that one I didn't notice a big difference. Movies are the same way for me.
