A 34-year-old member asked:

Does having astigmatism in one eye prevent one from seeing in 3d?

No: As long as your eyes have good corrected vision with glasses or contacts, and they are aligned normally, then you should have depth perception ( 3d). Now how much depth perception you have depends on how good your visual system works.

Yes: If there is any difference/imbalance from one eye to another including astigmatism, this can cause eye strain or even headaches. Correcting the imbalance should relieve the symtoms.
