Does Listening To Mozart Improve Vision?
The Effect Of Music On Eyes
We've all heard of studies claiming listening to classical music may improve your academic or work performance. But can listening to Mozart improve your vision too? Maybe..
A Brazilian study suggests that medical students who listen to Mozart for ten minutes before taking a visual test performed better than their non-music listening counterparts. Mozart may be the next answer to eyeglasses. How about Bach for contact lens wearers?
In this particular study on vision, researchers divided sixty participants in two groups. Study participants then took an automated visual perimetry test. This test helps identify whether someone suffers from peripheral vision abnormalities or blind spots.
Half the study participants listened to Mozart's Sonata for Two Pianos for ten minutes and scored better on the vision test than the remaining half, who sat quietly for 10 minutes instead. Perhaps Mozart stimulated the brains of the participants in some way. Because the test was not repeated using other musicians or stimulus (like Bach or reading), it is unclear whether the results related to Mozart's music directly or the mere fact that researchers stimulated the senses of participants directly for ten minutes before the test.
Regardless, this test just provides one more reason to put Mozart into your CD player. It can't hurt, and most likely will help! You'll probably still need to visit your eye doctor for regular checkups, but you might as well have a good time testing the effects of Mozart on your life.
