Exclamation Violent Video Games Can Improve Vision

What will they come up with next? Playing violent games makes you better at sex?

I find it hard to believe such reports, but here it is, anyway!

Quote:
Violent Video Games Can Improve Vision

"According to a new study, people who played fighting games on their PCs became up to a 58 percent better at perceiving fine contrast differences, an important aspect of eyesight. The breakthrough is significant because it was previously thought that the ability to notice even very small changes in shades of grey against a uniform background could not be improved. Contrast sensitivity is the primary limiting factor in how well one sees. Volunteers in the study played intensively for 50 hours over nine weeks with either Unreal Tournament 2004 and Call of Duty 2, and the results were compared with another group who played The Sims 2, which is richly visual but does not require as much hand-eye coordination. The improvements lasted for months after game play stopped. The new finding suggests action video games could be used as training devices as a useful complement to eye-correction techniques, since gaming may teach the brain's visual cortex to make better use of the information it receives."

Re: Violent Video Games Can Improve Vision

i won't say the things completely wrong as since i was also gamer and played some action packed games sometime ago, so i may not be able to say the whole to be correct or not but to what i think it is right, and also anyway we have to take care of the eye sight normally when playing these games usually. That's it.

Re: Violent Video Games Can Improve Vision

I was surprised when ophthalmologist suggested that I should allow my son to play videogames in which too much of eye movement is required.

Although 3 years down the line his vision has not improved but at the same time it has not deterioted.
