Stereoscopic display produces enhanced game playing experience for the user. However, this experience might be affected by eye strain symptoms produced by the convergence-accommodation conflict in the visual system. In this study we measured the level of sickness symptoms in mobile stereoscopic game playing situation. Our results showed that playing a mobile game with an autostereoscopic display did not cause eye strain that differed from eye strain caused by ordinary mobile device usage. The results suggest that with sufficiently small disparities a mobile stereoscopic display can be used to achieve a comfortable user experience. We also found links between experienced sickness symptoms and background variables. Firstly, our results indicated that females reported higher symptom levels than males. Secondly, we showed that the participants with higher susceptibility to motion sickness reported higher sickness levels in the experiment. Thirdly, we showed that participants with less computes skills or with less enthusiastic attitude towards new technology had significantly more sickness symptoms than the other participants.
