Improving your eyesight? There's an app for that

A brain-training app that gives middle-aged people the eyesight of those ten years younger will be available to download within months, developers say.

They claim it can dramatically reduce the need for reading glasses in those who already wear them, as well as put off the day on which others need to invest in a pair.

Trials of the GlassesOff software have produced startling results, with people able to read more than two lines further down an eye chart after training.
