Playing Nintendo Daily Saves Boy’s Eyesight

Check out this article about how playing Nintendo DS while patching helped reverse Amblyopia!

Playing Nintendo Daily Saves Boy’s Eyesight

Playing two hours of Mario Kart each day with his twin brother Jake while wearing an eye patch on his good eye forced his weaker eye to work harder. The treatment worked immediately, improving his vision 250% in the first week. Truly amazing!

Warning Note: Nintendo has announced the release of a new 3D capable Nintendo DS handheld device called the Nintendo 3DS. As children with amblyopia struggle and are unable to see in 3D, the 3D version should be avoided for children with Amblyopia. The safety of children using a 3D device is also at question. Repeated exposure to 3D can damage the optic nerve and actually cause/worsen Amblyopia and Strabismus in children.
