I was browsing IGN today and found a post about video games and it’s effects on vision. It was very interesting because it had comments from dallas lasik surgeon, dr boothe, and brought up some interesting questions. With video games becoming more and more popular and the age range of gamers starting to really widen, the effects on video games on our eyesight is a valid concern. In my opinion, it should have similar effects to watching television, but the blog article on IGN linked to research done to show that video games acually helped your vision. I don’t mean by improving eyesight like lasik would do, but more in that it helped reaction times. The blogger goes on to talk about how dr boothe had recognized that this was a very logical and possible idea.
