Get More Enjoyment from 3D Movies

Posted by administration on June 4, 2014

Movies, televisions and even theme park rides in 3D really help to bring the action to life. Of course, in order to get the full effect of 3D experiences, the viewer must wear special 3D glasses. In fact, if you view a 3D movie without the glasses, the blurry image on the screen can be very uncomfortable on your eyes.

If you currently wear regular eyeglasses for nearsightedness (myopia) in Rapid City to see distant objects clearly, going to a 3D movie can be a real hassle. You have the options of:

  • Wearing 3D glasses over your regular eyeglasses (this is also uncomfortable)
  • Wearing contact lenses instead of your regular eyeglasses (although not everyone can wear contacts)
  • Purchasing special 3D clip on glasses that you wear over your regular eyeglasses to watch 3D movies (you have to remember to bring them with you)
  • Watching the alternate 2D version of movies instead of the 3D version (and miss out on some special effects)
  • Having LASIK vision correction to possibly correct your myopia and eliminate your need for glasses

Dr. Wright and Dr. Fromm at Great Plains Eye Specialistshave performed thousands of LASIK procedures on myopic patients. While not all of them have been fans of 3D movies, they all wanted to find out what life could be like if they didn’t have to wear glasses or contacts. Most of them didn’t enter into the decision to have LASIK lightly. They researched the LASIK process in Rapid City. Then they learned if their eyes were right for LASIK (through a free LASIK Consultation at Great Plains Eye Specialists) and interviewed Dr. Wright and Dr. Fromm extensively to make sure they had the best experience, the best LASIK technologies and best “chair-side” manner.

There are a lot of 3D movies coming out in spring/summer 2014: How to Train Your Dragon 2, Transformers: Age of Extinction; Maleficent, Godzilla, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Guardians of the Galaxy and more. If you would like to have a more enjoyable 3D summer, find out if Location LASIK vision correction is right for you. Call Great Plains Eye Specialistsat 605-718-5123 or
