Red light can improve vision in case of age-related deterioration. You just need to look at it for three minutes a day.

This discovery was made by ophthalmologists from University College London, whose article was published in the Journal of Gerontology: Biological Sciences.

Thus, the study found that red light allows to "reboot" mitochondria in the retina, making them work more efficiently.

The study involved 12 men and 12 women aged 28-72 who did not suffer from eye diseases. They were given special LED flashlights to look at for three minutes a day for two weeks.

At the end of the experiment, it turned out that the young participants were not affected by the red light. However, those who were 40 years old and older showed significant improvements. Some of them became 20% better at recognizing colors.

Scientists hope that in the future this method will help many people with poor eyesight and will be used even at home.
