As gamers, due to the way gaming is often treated out there in the real world, we latch onto any small victory like starving peasants grabbing at scraps.
Here’s another one for us. If we can call it that. A study conducted by Canada’s McGill University has revealed that playing Tetris has a higher chance to fix a lazy eye than a patch.

The study, seen by the BBC, gathered a group of 18 adults and made them play Tetris. The results suggested that playing the addictive little classic was more effective at curing a lazy eye than the traditional method of patching the eyeball.
Dr. Robert Hess, a team member, discovered that “when we get the two eyes working together, we find the vision improves. It’s much better than patching, much more enjoyable, it’s faster and it seems to work better.”
The team is currently investigating whether the treatment will work for children.
You hear that? That, is what victory sounds like. Celebratory chocolate is in order.
