Cataract Surgery: Better vision with video games By William Goldstein on February 22, 2012

Cataract surgery patients may experience better vision with daily use of video games, a recent Canadian study shows. This finding was in patients 19-31 years of age, who had cataract surgery done when they were children.

The researchers had already established that adults who played video games had improvement in their vision, and in their ability to recognize faces and read small print.

The study spanned 1 month, and had 6 patients play 40 hours of video games during that month. All patients had improved function, and 5 of 6 had improvement towards 20/20 vision.
