I usually keep it off 'cause when I turn it on it seems to cause the battle to lag a little and the text is slower.

Off. My eyes start to feel like they are stressed out after awhile when I have it on.

I occasionally turn it on, I love the 3DS feature but I have to find a comfortable position for it not to hurt my eyes, and that takes forever :3

Off. I think I've turned it on once or twice, but only for a very brief moment. Not a big fan of playing in 3D for prolonged periods of time. Not to mention the framerate hit.

I never do, but it's mostly because I never remember to turn it on. For some reason or another it just doesn't ever occur to me. I tested it out once after I first got the system, but not since then. Anyways, I'm of the opinion that 3ds games shouldn't NEED the 3d function to be visually impresive, at least for hand held standards.

I keep it off. I have never really liked 3D. Spy Kids 3D: Game Over pretty much killed 3D for me because the glasses hurt my eyes. I have always considered 3D effect a waste of money.
Heh the one and only 3d movie I ever saw at the cinema and I spent the whole time feeling sick.

I can't see the 3D, or any 3D for that matter. So mine is always off.

I usually have 3d turned off because I think it has a bit higher quality 2d. But that is not to say that I dont like 3d.
A lot of the time it can be an up an down vicious cycle of 3d or 2d xD

I noticed a slight discernment when I turned my 3D on. A slight one unfortunately. For the most part, I played with my 3D off, but I tried to turn the 3D for most of the Gym and E4 battles, and the cutscenes.

I had it on for certain scenes but now it's always off. It's better to save the battery and not have the slight lag, I think. The 3D effects were pretty solid, though, so that was a plus for whenever I had it on.

To people who say your eyes hurt, try checking the calibration settings or something. Unless you have very sensitive eyes, you're probably doing it wrong.

I play with 3D on all the time. I have 8 - 10 hours grinding sessions every now and then, and it doesn't affect me in any way. I personally don't see why anyone would turn off such an awesome feature.

Not really. Its well known that our eyes cannot handle the 3D effect due to how the eyes having to process the images we are receiving at a very fast and changing pace in a scale that is larger than we were born to be able to perceive. There are warnings on 3D TVs, systems, games, and movies that say people are supposed to take breaks from interacting and over exposure could cause irreversible consequences.

I cannot see 3D effects, but I still suffer from the draw backs because, even though I cannot see them, my eyes still try to process the images the way they are meant to be processed and it puts a lot of strain on my eyes.

If you can do the 3D effect, having your slider up at all times, and not suffer from anything that means your eyes are just more accustomed to something it shouldn't be accustomed to at all. Means in this one instance your eyes are better than most people's.

Yes, however, where I live it is also well known that looking at a computer screen for too long would give you square eyes, so I tend to take those kind of statements with a grain of salt.
Granted I see some people do get irritated from the 3D function, but relating to myself I can't figure out why.
That said, the moment I move my 3DS out of it's "perfect position", my eyes get teary because the 3D effect becomes irritating - I can clearly see an overlay of the same two pictures. This is where my previous statement came from.

Therein lies the issue (at least for me). Do you have a regular 3DS or an XL? I hear it's a bit trickier to stay within the "3D zone" on the XL, which is why I never have it enabled for long periods. It's not the actual 3D effect that seems to give me a headache, it's the fact that my eyes are constantly going in and out of "focus."

I play on a regular 3DS, and aside from that, I usually play in bed or on the sofa, primarily when lying down, so I don't move around much. This is how I can keep my screen in focus towards my eyes.

I tried having the 3D on for one battle, then turned it off for the rest of the game. I have to be sitting in a very specific position for the 3D to even look the way it's supposed to, but even then I can't look at it for very long without it giving me a headache, so I don't bother.
