Video Games Helps Improve Vision

Contrary to popular belief that playing video games can ruin one’s vision. Researchers found playing the games improved the ability to notice even very small changes in shades of grey against a uniform background. This actually helps improve your vision later in your adult life. You will actually be able to notice even the smallest details. The Nature Neuroscience study has raised the possibility of using a video game training regime to improve vision.

Contrast sensitivity is often one of the first aspects of vision to be affected by aging. It can also be affected by conditions such as amblyopia, also known as lazy eye. Playing video games, as side from improved hand and eye coordination will improve your eye sight as you grow older, so next time someone criticizes you are playing games rather than studying, tell them you are exercising your eyes.
