Its not 3D TV which affects the eyes or ears. Its the 3D glasses which create flickering while watching 3D picture. These glasses are heavy & uncomfortable for having inbuilt batteries, hence cause headache.
Dont worry man! I can ensure you that the launch of LGs new 3D TV on 26 April in India will remove all the problems like image retention, flickering, cross talk, low brightness etc. By the way, the technology provided by LG would never harm your eyes.

Being a doctor, I would suggest you not to watch a 3D TV because when I watched at the theatre I got severe headache due to flickering of pictures. And its a warning to those who have weak eye-sight; please stay away from 3D TV or if necessary to use, ensure youre using right eye glasses.

If she has identified the problem to be occurring only after watching the 3D tv, then he/she should avoid it, and consult the doctor for the specific probelm.
The largest of TV manufacturers are already into significant volume production for 3D tv, so this problem may not be generic.
Personally I do not find 3D TV attractive, because of hassle of wearing specific types of glasses to enjoy it. But I am not aware of any physical harm it causes.

Japan based consumer electronics manufacturer Toshiba has announced the worlds first 3D Flat panel-TV without glasses. Toshiba has launched two 3D TVs with a screen size of 12 inch and 20 inch in Japans biggest consumer electronics show, CEATEC 2010.

Toshiba claimed that the new integral imaging system helps the users to experience 3D videos without wearing 3D glasses. The new Toshiba 3D TV uses a perpendicular lenticular sheet, an array of small lenses that directs light from the display to nine points in front of the set. If a viewer sits within the optimal viewing zone, the brain integrates these points into a single 3D image.
