Actually, this explains a lot, particularly the bit about how some games can help fix lazy eye. I’ve been wearing at least reading glasses since I was twelve because of a ‘focus disorder’, which is basically both eyes being lazy. The exercises that they might have prescribed to help correct the problems gave me headaches, so I stuck with glasses, switching to bifocals and then varifocals as my distance vision deteriorated.
I started playing video games to any great degree relatively recently, and in my last couple of eye exams, I’ve been told that my close vision has actually improved. I’ll still probably always need the varifocals, but given that the improvement in my vision came pretty close on the heels of my starting to play video games in any meaningful amount… Well. *g*
I’m missing some nuances here and there and the term ‘educational games’ is not always used correctly, but the idea is sound and true: gaming can be utilized for our physical and mental well being and for the good of our society.
I felt sorry for this polar bear so I made him look cooler.
