Nintendo 3DS Could Actually Diagnose Eye Disorders

The Nintendo 3DS, once slammed as an eye-destroying device, is now being thought of as a tool for diagnosing eye disorders. According to Digital Trends, optometrists feel this could be a useful tool for early warning signs.

“The 3DS could be a godsend for identifying kids under six who need vision therapy,” associate director for health sciences and policy for the American Optometric Association Michael Duenas told the Canadian Press.

Kids who can’t see the 3D effect could possibly have a lazy eye. Dizziness or discomfort caused by the 3DS could also indicate a vision problem. Of course, there is still contingency of cranky old men who aren’t having it.

“Kids should be out running around,” noted director of the Vision Performance Institute at Pacific University Jim Sheedy.
