Playing Tetris Treats Lazy Eye

The lazy eye condition is usually treated by patching the good eye. This forces the lazy eye to work harder and over time catch up with the good eye. Canadian doctors found out now that playing Tetris can fix the condition too. According to a publication in Current Biology (via BBC) playing Tetris worked better than patching in a small study with 18 adults.

Now the researches are planning to test Tetris on children. Playing Tetris hands down beats running around with a patch. Note that this will not work with playing BioShock Infinite. Tetris is special as the placing and rotation of the shapes requires both eyes to work together.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
