What is Sport Vision Therapy?

Sport Vision Training

We start with a sports -focused visual assessment. Sports vision testing helps athletes determine how well their eyes perform. 

These tests go beyond standard eye tests that only evaluate the ability to see letters and objects clearly on a standard eye chart. Sports vision testing can be beneficial for assessing athletic abilities associated with hand-eye coordination, eye tracking, and depth perception.

Next, we develop a tailor vision training program for your needs and goals. You will work 1x1 with you trained vision therapist and learning exercises to continue your training out of the office. 

Train like the professional. Train like he best. Train your eyes and brain to have an edge and reach your full potential. 

We train the necessary visual skills for athletic success. 

Dynamic Visual Acuity – the ability to see objects clearly that are in motion.

Eye Tracking – the ability to “keep your eye on the ball.”

Focusing – the ability to change focus from one object to another quickly and clearly.

Peripheral Awareness – being able to see things out of the corner of your eye.

Depth Perception – the ability to quickly and accurately judge the distance and speed of objects.

Eye-Hand or Eye-Body Coordination – the ability to use our eyes to direct the movements of our hands/body.

Reaction Time – how quickly a person perceives an anticipated visual event and how quickly they can react to that stimulus.

Balance – the ability to stay upright or stay in control of body movement. Vision and balance are directly related.

Contrast Sensitivity – the ability of the visual system to distinguish between an object and its background.

Sports Vision Therapy

Athletic performance is not only enhanced in the gym; it also requires excellent visual processing speed and hand-eye coordination. We can help you or your team see better & react faster so you can perform at a higher level.
