Product Description

2D-Glasses are a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser for your 3D-addled eyeballs. Buy them. Gizmodo. These things are going to sell like crazy. Techland About 10% of Americans experience some form of discomfort while watching 3D movies and television. Symptoms range from a mild headache to severe nausea. 2D-Glasses are the solution. Glasses allow any RealD 3D movie to be viewed as if it is a normal two-dimensional movie. They were created so that Hank Green's wife could watch 3D movies together with him without getting a headache. Soon, Hank realized that they weren't the only people with this problem, so he made them available to help the rest of the population. Hank's wife loves them, and he hopes you will too. Frequently Asked Questions my girlfriend friend / husband / mom has a condition. Will 2D Glasses help them? If your friend or loved one can enjoy a regular movie, they can enjoy a 3D movie with 2D glasses. Will your 2D Glasses work with my home 3D television? Maybe. If your television uses "passive 3D" technology then they will work. Basically, if your 3D glasses have batteries and cost lots of money, our 2D glasses won't work for your 3D television. Do 2D Glasses work at IMAX theaters? Alas, no. IMAX uses a different technology than normal movie theaters so 2D-Glasses will not work at an IMAX theater, however over 85% of the 3D movies shown are viewed with RealD technology, which the 2D glasses are perfect for. How do 2D Glasses work? 2D Glasses block the same image with both lenses, so each eye gets the same picture resulting in a 2D image and an elimination of eyeball strain. Now You Can go to the Movies with Friends, See the 3D Film you all Want to Watch, and Enjoy it Without Walking out with a Throbbing Headache.

Many of us are skeptics of 3D movies, and yet we still have times when we get dragged to 3D movies with fiends, lovers, or groups; or when a 3D showing may be the only thing available to us. Enter 2D Glasses, designed to turn the 3D image back into 2D. But do they work?

Well, based on my test screening, they work perfectly. I took them to a 3D screening of Thor, and had the theater-provided 3D glasses and the 2D glasses side by side. Thor has some really effective, pronounced 3D when viewed with the theater gasses, as did some of the previews. The 2D glasses were so good at flattening them back to 2D that I was really quite shocked. No residual blurriness (one of my big complaints about 3D is the sometimes blurry images), and really no hint at all that I wasn't looking at a "natively" 2D projection.

If you aren't a fan of 3D but feel like you just can't escape it, you can buy these in confidence.

I've always had discomfort when watching 3D movies, and i've always hated it because i like to watch movies, but 50 % of all blockbuster movies are only in 3D nowadays. With these amazing glasses i can finally watch movies again. I thank you

these glasses are so simple, but so brilliant.
many people experience discomfort watching 3-d movies, and until now, no one has really seemed to care
why haven't these been made before?

With a product such as this, I am amazed that there are so many "joke" reviews and so few real ones. Made it difficult for my wife and I to decide to purchase them. So, now that I've tried them out, here is my take on them.

Frustrated by all the blockbuster films ONLY being released in 3D, or being mostly released in 3D? Get migraines or headaches when you try to watch it, in 3D? Even get sick to your stomach? Then if you want to be able to watch your anticipated films on the big-screen, and not have to wait for the DVD release, you need to get these glasses.

They are very comfortable, and as sturdy as any of the 3D glasses that are given to you when you go to a 3D movie. Occasionally, the film will get a bit blurry around the edges, but that isn't due to the glasses. That is a product of the 3D filming process, because they want certain objects on screen to stay in the background, and other items to pop out at you. The glasses can't stop it, but it's rare.

The only thing I would caution you about is to be careful with your glasses at the end of the movie. They look like the regular 3D glasses, so be careful not to throw them into the recycle bin with all the rest!

Thanks for an awesome product!

I recently purchased a Vizio passive 3D TV, but some family members do not enjoy 3D, so I was very pleased to find the 2D glasses. The glasses shipped and arrived very quickly and work great. These are essentially the same thing as the Real D glasses used in most movie theaters, but render the image in 2D vs. 3D. Build quality was good. Recommended if you have friends or family members that don't like the 3D effect.

These glasses worked perfect! My husband and I both get headaches from 3d movies and over the weekend watched Priest 3D with the glasses on. If you are tired of watching 3d movies at the theater, these are worth it!

Real 3D movies: WORKS GREAT
IMAX 3D movies: Not Compatible

I purchased a set these glasses after watching a film critic who couldn't stand 3D but wanted to watch IMAX movies. I tried wearing the glasses at a couple of normal 3d movies and was very impressed with the results. These are also compatible with any 3D television that uses non battery operated glasses.

So follow up, these glasses DO NOT work on IMAX 3D movies. While disappointing, these glasses still work wonderfully with Real 3D.

One more note, I saw a reviewer bought a pair of these to use at amusement park attractions, those typically use IMAX 3D technology.

My wife gets headaches from what we assume is a result of her inner ear issues and my daughter just flat out doesn't like 3D. Myself, I like 3D. So for situations where a theater like the El Capitan only has one screen, one viewing and it's in 3D....my gals can use these and be just fine while the rest of us enjoy the 3D.

However, do yourself a favor and READ the product description. The only negative reviews on this product are from people who DID NOT READ and tried to use these glasses at something other than a RealD screening like IMAX.
