Playing Tetris video game ‘fixes lazy eye’

ea-tetris-6Canadian doctors say they have found an inventive way to treat lazy eye – playing the Tetris video game.

The McGill University team discovered the popular tile-matching puzzle could train both eyes to work together.

In a small study, in Current Biology with 18 adults, it worked better than conventional patching of the good eye to make the weak one work harder.

The researchers now want to test if it would be a good way to treat children with the same condition.
