My eye or eye glasses, 3D All-in-one PC and 3D blu-ray problem?

I have astigmatism for myself.

So, I wear glasses.

And one day, my family members visited uncle's house, for holiday family and relatives gathering.

Uncle showed us 3D video using his All-in-one PC that has 3D monitor capable.

Without glasses, I can't see clear because of me having astigmatism and I had to wear both my glasses and 3D glasses.

When I was watching the 3D blu-ray, like 96-98% of time I couldn't see 3D effect, but other people viewed fine, they could see all the 3D effect.

"Is this only me having this problem?"

If yes to above question, can anyone tell me what's wrong and how to fix the problem.

Hi,

If you Google "3d with astigmatism" there is a lot of information out there.
From what I read, the eyes have to work together in order to view 3D. So those unfortunate people who have just one eye cannot appreciate the effect.
I also read that it is about 5% of people who have eye problems who cannot view 3d.

Somebody suggested contact lenses may help.

This is really a question for your optician. They will be able to explain far better than I why you are not able to see the effect.

Good luck.

Oh, ok.
Thanks for reply.
I should have been more clear.
When I saw that 3D Blu-ray, some part I could see proper 3D effect, but for some part, I could just see as regular DVD movie like.

Hi,

I suspect it may be the quality of the 3D. I am not a fan of 3D so have only seen small bits - but what I have seen is as you describe.
Some effects are far better than others and this does vary throughout a film.
This is the problem of everybody being different; we all see, hear, taste etc things differently.
You are probably getting the benefits of the better 3D effects but the others you are seeing "normally" which is an individual thing.

As I said before, a quick chat with your optician will explain things far better than I can.

Oh, that's possible.
But unluckily....
All people who are there, watched fine.
It didn't do what happened to me.
I asked them that is this only happening to me?
They said yes.
They could see all the popping out or all the features of 3D.
And to make sure, they all don't have astigmatism.

This is unfortunate - and frustrating for you.
I don't know what more I can say.

It's ok.
Your reply helped me a lot.
You made me realize it might be my eye problem (astigmatism) can cause this situation.
