Photo Courtesy - Nintendo(KYOTO, Japan) – Japanese gaming company Nintendo has warned that a new 3D video game player could permanently damage the eyesight of those under age six whose eyes are still developing, reports MedPage Today.

The portable 3D player, 3DS, will be introduced starting in late February. In their warning, Nintendo cited "a potential impact on the growth of children's eyes” when using the device in 3D.

Nintendo suggests that the device be switched to a 2D mode when used by children under six years old.
