Our sports vision training program starts with a comprehensive eye examination. It is very
important to make sure your eyes are healthy and that your vision needs are met through either
prescription eyeglasses, contact lenses, or orthokeratology. We require your exam be updated yearly.
We would be honored to provide these needs to you. Please click the link here to request and eye
If you have already had your exam through another provider, you will need to request this
information be sent to us before starting the program.
By testing and training techniques, we want our athlete’s visual system to improve in all kinds of
sports. Each athlete will be enrolled in a week-by-week course that specializes in improving
these areas below.
This is the ability to screen out distractions and stay focused on a target
This helps you maintain better balance and react to situations more quickly.
This is how your hands, feet, body and other muscles respond to
the information gathered through your eyes.
The process of remembering fast moving people and objects. Like a batter
when he is standing on the on-deck circle watching the pitcher, the batter can take that information to the batter’s box when he is up to the plate.
The ability to in your mind see yourself making the free-throw or connecting your racquet and the tennis ball. Picturing yourself doing something can actually help you do it!
In sports, a lot of time things are not happening directly in front of you. By
enhancing your peripheral vision, you will be more competitive because you are aware of what is going on around you. Such as seeing the pitcher seeing the base runner lead off second trying to steal third or an open man on the basketball court wide open.
DYNAMIC VISUAL ACUITY
If you are playing a sport like tennis, soccer, or baseball, it is important
that you be able to clearly see objects while you and/or the objects are moving fast.
VISUAL REACTION TIME
The speed with which your brain interprets and reacts to an action. Such
as, the batter being able to react to the ball leaving the pitcher’s hand.
The ability to see things in three dimensions (including length, width and depth), and to judge how far away an object is.
WHY DO THIS?
Our program is for athletes and weekend warriors that are looking to enhance their skills. Sports vision is more than 20/20 vision.
The International Sports Vision Association states that doctors estimate that up to 80% of perceptual input in sports comes from the eyes.
We firmly believe that training your eyes is just as Important as training any other body part for sports performance.
The evaluation consists of a one-on-one meeting to discuss the skills you desire and need in your sport. We will also be testing to determine strengths and weaknesses. We can also discuss if you have any specific areas where you are wanting to improve. This step is critical to set up a program to best suit your needs.
If you are participating in our virtual program, we will hold this meeting either on Zoom or over the phone.
