I wear glasses (minus 4,5) and once tried Samsung LCD 3D TV in an exhibition in my local mall. And yes ; the 3D glasses it's very uncomfortable at all.

Not to mention that I feel awkward wearing it. It made me look like a skinny version of Scott Summers...

Theres different designs you can wear. I've tried on 2 different ones that samsung released, wasnt a problem. I also had the classic nerd style big black rimmed ones when watching avatar. Didnt affect me or my friends.

I tried the Samsung ones. They suck. They cost over $100 dollars. They didn't fit well over my regular glasses (unlike the True 3D ones which barely fit over them).

Avatar is not out yet for 3D TVs. You are talking about the movie theater and those glasses are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. The home glasses are active, it has LCD screens that turn on and off 120 times a second. The glasses at the theater are passive and are based on the polarity of the light, something TVs cannot do.

Your entire quote was about the stiffness and uncomfortableness of these glasses. You said nothing about possible strain to eyes.

That's right, so I don't know why you bring up strain now.

You just said what I was talking about are completely different glasses because of the shutter speed. You're deliberately trying to rile me up so I come over and paint your room pink arent you.

I was hoping more for a chartreuse color, but I suppose pink will do.

But isn't any "shutter speed" in the theatrical glasses. Because of this they can be very lightweight.

I dont think I recall any difference in weight between the theatre glasses and the ones I wore for the samsung tv. If anything the samsung ones were more comfortable.
