WHAT IS SPORTS VISION TRAINING?

There is much more to vision than just seeing clearly. Just as you can improve your athletic strength, speed, endurance, and flexibility with special training, you can also improve your visual fitness and accuracy skills with sports vision training.

Sports vision training is a series of sport-specific vision training techniques designed to improve an athlete’s entire visual performance.

Sports vision training allows an athlete to unlock his or her fullest potential beyond what could solely be achieved through practice on the field, on the court, or in the weight room. You can learn how to improve your concentration, judge the distance of targets more accurately, as well as practice visualization to keep you calm and focused.

These are components of the visual system that our team will both evaluate and train as needed for your specific sport:

  • Dynamic Visual Acuity: ability to see objects clearly while they are in motion
  • Tracking: “Keeping your eyes on the ball” along with tracking multiple objects simultaneously
  • Binocular Coordination/Eye Teaming: Both eyes working together and efficiently at all distances, even under high speed and physically stressful conditions
  • Depth Perception: Judging relative distance between targets quickly and correctly
  • Visual Focus: Quickly shifting focus to and from a target at any distance and keeping it clear
  • Eye-Hand-Body Coordination: Responding to visual stimuli with appropriate use of the hands, feet, or body
  • Peripheral Awareness: Ability to react and adapt according to “side” vision; ability to see people and objects “out of the corner of your eye”
  • Central-Peripheral Integration: Following the ball while simultaneously being aware of other players on the field
  • Speed of Processing: Cognitively interpret and react quickly and efficiently to changes in the game
  • Visualization: The ability to mentally picture or imagine your game, plays, or planning future action

“THE EYE LEADS THE BODY”

All sports are different and therefore visual demands can greatly vary. Your Doctor of Optometry can assess your visual system and recommend the proper eyeglasses or contact lenses, as well as design a unique sports vision training program to maximize your visual performance for your specific sport.

WHO IS SPORTS VISION TRAINING FOR?

Sports Vision Training is for any athlete wanting to take their game to the next level. Whether you are a little leaguer, a professional athlete, or a recreationally competitive adult, an individualized sports vision training program can help you gain a dynamic edge on the competition.

WHAT IS THE SPORTS VISION EVALUATION?

The Sports Vision Evaluation first begins with your Comprehensive Eye Exam with one of our Optometrists. This initial exam will include assessment of acuity, eye teaming, depth perception, visual focusing skills, tracking, and more.

After your initial comprehensive exam, you will see one of the Sports Vision Directors to complete the Sports Vision Evaluation. During this evaluation, we will continue assessing some skills covered in your initial comprehensive exam but will place an emphasis on your specific sport. We will also assess critical skills such as:

  • Visual-Motor Integration
  • Peripheral Awareness
  • Central-Peripheral Integration
  • Visual Memory
  • Reaction Time
  • Speed of Processing
  • And many other skills necessary for athletic success.
  • Visual-Motor Integration
  • Peripheral Awareness
  • Central-Peripheral Integration
  • Visual Memory
  • Reaction Time
  • Speed of Processing
  • And many other skills necessary for athletic success.

Following your Sports Vision Evaluation, we will discuss findings from your exam, the Sports Vision Evaluation, and will recommend a training program based on your goals and skills. During this consultation following your evaluation, we are happy to answer any and all questions you may have.

Sports Vision Training is not just training eyes. It is a neurological re-wiring of the brain that syncs the entire visual system with the rest of the body. Sports require a unique blend of physical ability, mental ability, and sensory processing. Maximizing one’s vision can make the difference between a good and a great player.
