A Simple Proposal for a Solution to the Accommodation-Vergence Mismatch Problem in 3D Displays

Here is suggested a solution to the accommodation-vergence mismatch problem in 3D stereoscopic displays. It can be achieved by compensating the mismatched focal length with refractive power of adjustable-focus 3D glasses. The compensation would make vergence of human eyes match with position of virtual stereoscopic motion pictures, reducing visual fatigue.

Vergence-accommodation conflicts hinder visual performance and cause visual fatigue.
This display is used to evaluate the influence of focus cues on perceptual distortions, fusion failures, and fatigue and shows that when focus cues are correct or nearly correct, the time required to identify a stereoscopic stimulus is reduced, stereoacuity in a time-limited task is increased, and distortions in perceived depth are reduced.

Psychophysical experiments are presented showing, even when geometrical deformations have been factored out, specific deviations from veridicality in observers' depth reports for stereograms of simple static patterns devoid of secondary cues.
Visual Discomfort and Visual Fatigue of Stereoscopic Displays: A Review
The importance of various causes and aspects of visual discomfort is clarified and three-dimensional artifacts resulting from insufficient depth information in the incoming data signal yielding spatial and temporal inconsistencies are believed to be the most pertinent.

Previously undescribed switchable, flat, liquid-crystal diffractive lenses that can adaptively change their focusing power have the potential of revolutionizing the field of presbyopia correction when combined with automatic adjustable focusing power.
