    Yes. Watching 3D movies in a dark place will make the pupils dilated and intraocular pressure increased. The increased intraocular pressure will damage the optic nerve and then lead to acute glaucoma.

    It is quite possible that watching 3D movies can cause glaucoma easily. Because when we are watching 3D movie, the exciting images will cause our pupils to dialate. Some people with glaucoma risk factors will have high eye pressure and result in glaucoma.
