Significance: Athletes exhibit better dynamic visual acuity (DVA) compared with nonathletes, whereas action video game players (VGPs) perform more similarly to controls despite having similar static visual acuity and refractive errors. The differences in DVA between groups were not related to differences in static visual acuity, refractive error, or smooth pursuit gain.
Purpose: The purpose of the study was to examine whether athletes and VGPs have superior DVA than controls (nonathletes, nongamers). Read More
