Vision Testing for Enhanced Sports Performance

Many athletes do not realize that they suffer from refractive disorders and that they require corrective eyewear. We strongly recommend regular eye exams to our patients, especially those that are involved in sports and other activities that require strong vision. Hand-eye coordination is one of the most important strengths of many sports such as tennis, baseball, and golf. If your game is suffering and you aren't sure why, it may be that you need to enhance your coordination skills.  Our team can assess your vision and provide you with exercises to strengthen this skill.

Depth perception is another important skill for every athlete to have in abundance. The Howard-Dolman Apparatus is a key instrument to measure this skill. We will work with you to provide training to improve both your depth perception through this system of pulleys and strings that can evaluate and strengthen your overall depth perception.

The ability of your eyes and brain to communicate is a significant influence on your reaction time and accuracy, in tasks such as catching a pop-up flyball or returning a tennis serve. Most vision skills are tied to your visual processing speed, making it an impactful skill that can make the difference between good and great sports performance.

Sports vision training is tailor-made for your specific needs and deficiencies that are discovered during the examination process.
