Default $^%#carrots! Video games improve vision

Hey Kids-- Here's some ammunition against yer nagging mother!


Video Games Improve Vision by 20%

Research says playing video games improves your bottom line on a standard eye chart


Video games that contain high levels of action can actually improve your vision, claim researchers at the University of Rochester. Their findings, which will appear in the journal Psychological Science, show that people who played action video games for a few hours a day over the course of a month improved by about 20 percent in their ability to identify letters presented in clutter—a visual acuity test similar to ones used in regular ophthalmology clinics.
