iPad App Trains People To Fix Their Bad Eyesight

iPad App Trains People To Fix Their Bad Eyesight

A new platform can help people see more clearly up to 20 feet in front of them.

It’s all too easy to blame bad eyesight on genetics or some other factor that you have no control over, but the truth is that there is now a way to improve your eyesight. UltimEyes is an app that was designed by neuroscientists which teaches your brain how to make better use of your eyes. It was originally designed to help baseball players see better, but is available to use for anyone who has an interest in superhuman sight.

Researchers originally recruited 19 players from the University of California, Riverside baseball team to use the app for 30 25-minute intervals. Afterwards, players were able to see farther by an average of 31 percent, while nine of them even managed to attain vision of 20/7.5 – which means they can see clearly at 20 feet what normal people could only see at 7.5 feet.


The app may not sound all that exciting, it requires you to identify various blurry grey blobs, but if it can help you see farther, which makes us think boredom is a small price to pay for such a privilege. There is also the actual price of the app, which comes in at $6, and again, is a very small price to pay for long-range eyesight. If you’re interested, make sure to download the app here.
