There's a $95 app for that. This app presents gabor patches at different locations on the screen, and you have to respond when a gabor patch is presented at the target location. The app increases difficulty as you play by speeding up, changing orientation, and by presenting the gabor patches closer to the target. I can see how such an app could lead to faster processing/response times, but I don't see how it increases visual acuity. "After training, the volunteers were able to read more than two lines further down an optical chart held 40 centimetres from their eyes - corresponding to a reduction in "eye age" from 50.5 to 41.9 years". Can the brain really be trained to take a blurry image coming from the eyes and make it clear? Anyone familiar with this research?
