Scientists Show Simple Trick Can Boost Vision in Just 2 Hours
I’m a big fan of feeding your body the nutrients it needs to stay healthy. And that goes especially for the delicate tissues of your eyes. But nutritional supplements aren’t the only way to support healthy vision. A team of scientist at the University of California (UC) has shown a simple trick can boost vision in just 2 hours.
Nutrients like lutein and zeaxanthin are key to promoting healthy vision in the long term. But you may soon be able to “supplement your supplements” for even clearer, sharper picture of the world around you. The secret is a type of training that triggers improvements in visual processing.
Here’s the story…
The UC team used “perceptual learning” to help a group of adults – all over age 65 – improve their vision. The results were remarkable. After just 2 hours of training, spread over 2 days, the improvements in the volunteers’ vision lasted for 3 months!
Perceptual learning is a type of training that focuses on the senses. For example, learning to tell the difference between perfumes by their scents. Or learning to recognize different shades of the same basic color.
Doctors used to think only young brains were flexible enough to handle perceptual learning. But recent studies suggest older brains are more adaptable than we thought. The proof came with the UC team’s experiments. Some volunteers’ ability to detect contrast improved to the level of college students. 1
This is exciting news, but keep two things in mind…
First, this type of training works in the brain, rather than the eye itself. So it can only help overcome age-related declines in visual processing. Not in your vision itself.
Second, it’s just a step in the right direction. Further studies will have to verify the results… and hopefully identify the most effective exercises to take advantage of our new understanding.
But we’re on our way. Especially with the results of the UC researcher’s new study. It suggests the vision benefits of perceptual training may be bigger than they first thought.
The new study – reported in the journal Psychological Science – shows perceptual learning exercises can also improve visual acuity.2
In other words, the volunteers in this 2nd study didn’t just see the difference between things more accurately. They also saw objects more clearly. These newly discovered improvements appeared after just five training sessions.
As I said, these exercises focus on the brain – visual processing. So I still recommend taking a natural vision supplement to defend the delicate tissues of your eyes themselves.
Perceptual training may not be a replacement for a good vision formula… but it may soon prove to be the perfect “supplement to your supplements.” And a great way to help keep your vision more youthful for years longer.
Yours in continued good health,
