I’ve heard of other people reacting that way.  I went to see it too and I was having a hard time focusing on the 3D images so I had some eye strain.  That’s probably what you’re experiencing and it should go away soon.  There should be no permanent damage.  If there’s an IMAX theater near you, I’d suggest going there for the next 3D movie you want to see.  Its 3D without the glasses which may make it easier to adjust to.  That’s what I’m hoping, since I heard Alice in Wonderland is going to be 3D, and I kinda wanna see it.  I loved it as a child but this version seems a tad creepy!

Was it the first 3D movie you saw? I totally felt that way after I saw a 3D movie for the first time (double bad as I wear glasses so my eyes felt very strained and confused!). But Avatar was the 2nd time I tried watching 3D and it was alright. Maybe just takes some getting used to?

I have a theory – When you watch something in the new 3D it brings the foreground and background into focus.  When we normally look at something, what is closest to us is naturally in focus.  3D makes your brain and eyes work overtime in a way that they are not used to.  I saw Avatar in 2D and loved it, then saw it in 3D because Fiance really really wanted to.  I found that in 3D some of the fast moving action sequences were just a blur because my brain couldn’t process all the extra info that fast.  I didn’t get sick, but it wasn’t pleasant.

Before the movie started, Fiance told me to remember to blink. Halfway through the battle scene, I was like, “oh yeah. blink.”

We sat really close to the front which may or may not have been part of my problem but my eyes hurt after seeing it in 3D too I wish I’d have seen it in 2D it definately wasn’t worth the extra 2 bucks to see it in 3D when I felt sick throughout the movie and my eyes hurt afterward. I didn’t know Alice was gonna be in 3D that one might be worth seeing in 3D cuz Tim Burton is pretty awesome.

This happened to my Fiance when we went to go see the movie. We think it was because some of it was in 3D and some wasn’t.

Haha, my eyes hurt, but only because I hated the movie. Innocent I am glad I didn’t get motion sick or anything; I’ve had to leave movies before because of that.
