MindSpa and EyePort Exercise your Brain and Vision

Exercise has always been good for the soul, but did you know that it can also be beneficial to your eyes and mind?

I've been playing with two new products designed to improve your eyesight and mental fitness and, while I can't really testify as to how effective they are from a medical standpoint, I have been winning at chess and bridge lately.

The MindSpa Personal Development System ($249.95) and the EyePort Vision Training System ($199.95) are two tools developed after years of research that will exercise your mind and your eyes and can improve visual and mental capabilities.

The MindSpa uses a combination of sound and lights to help you sharpen and improve mental performance. And, since it's non-invasive, it's pretty much harmless. And you actually feel more relaxed after going through any of its 11 preprogrammed sessions.

The process is fairly simple: You just sit back, relax, plug its Visual Simulation Glasses and headphones into the unit, choose one of seven sessions and enjoy the show.

The EyePort, which was developed by Dr. Jacob Lieberman, is reminiscent of the exercises you go through when visiting an optometrist's office. Basically, the EyePort consists of a row of flashing and blinking lights (resembling the front of a flying saucer) that you set up in various configurations to exercise your eyes. The purpose here is to strengthen your eyes through a set pattern of exercises, and, by strengthening them, hopefully improve your vision.

Both of these products seemed to work as advertised, but I strongly urge that anyone planning on using them consult with a physician or optometrist before laying out the bucks for the products.
