This is the biggest problem with 3D.... it actually isn't 3D! The image is still being projected onto a flat surface a fixed distance from your eyes, so your focal length never changes.
Walter Murch had a great rant about this, I think it was a letter to Roger Ebert a couple years ago. (You actually may have been the one to share it here, ps33) If the first (and I believe only) person to ever win Oscars for editing both sound and picture says 3D is junk, then I'm inclined to agree with that.
