Again, we're not talking about 3D in general. As one study pinpointed, the negative effects were especially enhanced for people viewing 3D televisions as opposed to watching a 3D movie in a theater. When the demand for 3D TV rose in 2012, so did the number of people going to see optometrists. Why? Because all those 3D TVs were hurting people's fucking eyes.
The damn things even come with warning labels specifically directed at children under 7, because their vision is still developing. That's right: Plopping your kids in front of Shrek's latest 3D adventure full of antiquated pop culture references and the most irritating voices in cartoon history is permanently affecting their eyesight (as well as their intelligence).
