This year’s conference (Download Program) provides the latest studies and results concerning stereoscopic 3D (S3D) and the visual system. A goal of S3D is to create a high quality immersive experience that is also comfortable for the viewer: two objectives that can be at odds with one another. At the VPI we specialize in understanding the viewer visual experience. This conference explores how we can optimize the S3D experience and stay within human comfort ranges. We also will explore the impact of S3D on children in the classroom and its potential positive effects on public health. We also provide a first report on what we have learned from our 3D Performance Vision Clinic.
