Washington: Scientists have found that playing video games could help improve the vision of adults with ‘lazy eye’.Adults with amblyopia, or ‘lazy eye’, experienced marked improvement in 3-D depth perception and the sharpness of their vision after spending just 40 hours playing off-the-shelf video games, the researchers said.Amblyopia is a brain disorder in which vision in one eye does not develop properly. It is the most common cause of permanent visual impairment in childhood, affecting 2 to 3 out of every 100 American children, according to the National Eye Institute.Amblyopia is also the most common cause of one-eye visual impairment among young and middle-age adults.Although amblyopia can be successfully treated in children by putting a patch over the “good eye” to force the brain to use the weaker “lazy eye,” few options are available for adults with this condition.
