Video Games Improve Vision

A study suggests that action video gaming can improve one's eyesight.

People who played 5+ hours/week were found to have better contrast vision than non-gamers. Contrast sensitivity is useful for driving at night or in poor visibility ... and the first aspect of vision that deteriorates with age.

Also, non-gamers, who did a daily action video gaming workout boosted their contrast vision that lasted for months. Non-action video games didn’t have the desired effect.
