MemorEYES is an app I developed for an eye doctor. While you play, your eyes are being trained to be faster and more accurate.
Research shows that up to 80% of everything you learn comes through your eyes and many psychologists believe that most people use less than one-fifth of their available mind-power to process that information? That is where MemorEYES comes in. A simple training game that can make your visual system a super computer. Read faster, react faster, and remember more. All of that can be improved using MemorEYES.
Studies have shown that you can increase your reading skills by using the technology that MemorEYES employs. Increases in words per minute (WPM) and comprehension have been well documented using this type of training. Ordinary people have gained over 100 WPM and increased their comprehension from 52 to 85 percent just by using this technique (the average educated adult has an approximate 50 percent comprehension rate!). Imagine being able to read books, briefs, letters, email, homework or manuals faster and retain more information.
MemorEYES’s effectiveness isn’t just limited to academics. It can have the same effect for athletes. Many college and professional athletes use this technology. Professional baseball players have 4/10 of a second from the time a pitcher releases a ball until it hits the catchers mitt. The ability to recognize the type of pitch, it's speed and rotation is paramount in making solid contact. MemorEYES plays a vital role in training that process. Have you ever heard an athlete talk about the game slowing down? When your visual system is running at peak performance, it processes everything so much quicker that is seems like things are moving at a slower speed thus allowing you to “be ahead of the game.” The old adage in sports is “if you have to stop and think about what to do next, you are too late.” Baseball, basketball, football, hockey, tennis, even referees- this list of sports that MemorEYES can help you with is endless.
Differences between free and full version: Full version has the reading and comprehension tests for children and adults. Full version has the expanded range of letters and exposure time. The free version only has 2 choices (3 or 5 letters). Full version starts at 1/50 of a second up to 5 seconds. Free version only has 1/2 of a second or 2 seconds. Having these choices in the full version is what makes MemorEYES more effective as a training tool.
Before you start using MemorEYES, take our reading and comprehension tests to document how many WPM you can read and your comprehension rate. Use MemorEYES for up to 30 minutes per day and after 30-40 sessions, reread the same passage. Then keep training and measure it again after 30-40 more sessions and so on. For the training to be effective, start at a level that challenges you, but is not so hard that you aren’t getting any benefit. Training at a level way above your ability will not yield a very successful result.
Parents, this is a great way for your children to use an app that plays like a game but will help them in school and sports. Encourage them to use it in the car, waiting for a sibling, before dinner,as a warm up before sports, any time and any amount of training has a benefit.
MemorEYES was developed by an eye doctor who has used these techniques for over 20 years for his patients. Watch for more upcoming EYES apps to help enhance your visual skills!
