News video: Video Game Improves Children's VisionAre video games able to help children gain improved vision? According to a study, researchers say children with poor vision experience huge gains to their peripheral vision after only eight hours of training on kid-friendly video games. Duje Tadin, associate professor of brain and cognitive sciences at the University of Rochester, said: "Children who have profound visual deficits often expend a disproportionate amount of effort trying to see straight ahead, and as a consequence they neglect their peripheral vision." Tadin's team created a kid-friendly game that encouraged players to pay attention to the entire visual field, not just where their vision is most impaired.
