It may come as a shock to some parents and a pleasant surprise to your children.
Recent studies show habitual video game players tend to have much higher levels of visual attention, meaning they're able to notice more things and react more quickly than others.
Dr. David Todd says some doctors use games to help with lazy eyes.
Todd says, "You could potentially use it in sports if you did that type of training with a catcher where he could see all of the bases, a tennis player or an air traffic controller."
However, Todd does not condone endless hours of video games and he advises children to stay away from games with violence and obscenities.
