Better Vision After Listening to Mozart

Study published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology shows listening to Mozart improves vision test scores.

Listening to Mozart may improve some vision test scores, but don't toss your glasses yet.


São Paulo, Brazil – 05 June 2006 -- Just in time for the 250th anniversary of Wolfgang’s birth, a Brazilian study has determined that listening to Mozart for ten minutes before taking a vision perimetry test helped medical students score higher than their counterparts who did not listen to the piano concerto.

One must wonder what is next; Bhrams for contacts? Beatles for sunglasses? Abba for cataracts? Barry Manilow for glaucoma? Before you trade your spectacles for an iPod, the study’s conclusions appear to have little practical value.

Studies have attributed enhanced brain development in unborn children, better math skills, improved learning among college students, and many other perceived benefits to Mozart’s music, but not to Bach, Beethoven, or others. The “Mozart Effect” is not well understood and is considered controversial by many. This study, as those before, seems to raise as many questions as it offers answers.

Sixty similar individuals were separated into two groups of 30 each. All 60 took the same automated perimetry test, which is designed to determine abnormal peripheral vision or blind spots in a person’s visual field. Immediately before the test, 30 subjects listened to the Mozart Sonata for Two Pianos (K.448) for ten minutes through headphones. The other 30 sat in a quite room for 10 minutes. Of the two groups, those who listened to Mozart had statistically significant higher scores on the vision function test. The positive Mozart Effect wore off after 10 minutes.
