Yet Another Study Says First Person Shooters Are Good For Your Eyesight
from the tell-your-mother dept
Participants were all born with cataracts that were removed — but because of their condition, their vision never developed to 20/20. Six of the seven were not gamers.10 hours straight seems excessive...
They played the game for 10 hours straight in a controlled environment, and then two hours a day only until they reached 40 hours of play.
"We brought them back four weeks later and they all had improved vision," Lewis said.
That said, this is hardly new. We first noted a study like this nearly a decade ago. Then again five years ago. And, for good measure, three years ago. Whether or not the improved eyesight cancels out the urge to kill (rising) that such video games also provide is left to future research to determine (and because people are humor impaired: that's a joke).
