Brain-training video games help vision impaired kids see better
A new study in the United Kingdom shows that kids with poor vision report a major improvement in their vision after only eight hours of brain training via kid-friendly video games.
The improvement was not temporary and could be seen even a year later.Scientists say that children who have low vision tend to spend a lot of time seeing straight ahead. As a result, the vision from the sides of their eyes is poor. Action video games help correct that as it forces them to pay attention to the entire visual field.
