If you or your family has a history of
epilepsy or photosensitive seizures, consult
a medical professional before exposing
yourself to flashing light sources, rapid
image sequences or 3D viewing.
To avoid discomfort such as dizziness,
headache or disorientation, we
recommend not watching 3D for extended
periods of time. If you experience any
discomfort, stop watching 3D and do
not immediately engage in any potentially
hazardous activity (for example driving a
car) until your symptoms have disappeared.
If symptoms persist, do not resume
watching 3D without consulting a medical
professional first.
Parents should monitor their children
during 3D viewing and ensure they do not
experience any discomfort as mentioned
above. Watching 3D is not recommended
for children under six years of age as their
visual system is not fully developed yet.
