Head-mounted display did not have significant clinical effect on normal eyes

September 28, 2016

Volunteers who watched video using a head-mounted display for 30 minutes did not experience significant clinical effects in their normal adolescent eyes, according to a study.

The study, completed at Korea University College of Medicine in Seoul, included 60 volunteers between 13 and 18 years of age who watched either a three-dimensional movie or a virtual reality application using the head-mounted display. Researchers measured refractive error before viewing, immediately after the start of viewing and repeatedly every 10 minutes after viewing when a myopic shift greater than 0.15 D was observed.
