Sports Vision Training

What is sports vision training?    

Sports vision training is a specialized program designed to help athletes improve their visual skills and abilities to enhance their athletic performance. Sports vision training is not just about improving visual acuity or correcting refractive errors. It is a comprehensive program that focuses on enhancing and developing visual abilities such as:  

  • Reaction time 
  • Depth perception 
  • Eye-hand coordination 
  • Sharpness of focus 
  • Peripheral vision 
  • Visual tracking 
  • Other critical visual skills needed for sports  

Who benefits from sports vision training?    

Sports vision training is beneficial for athletes of all ages and skill levels, including amateur and professional athletes, weekend warriors, and young athletes. The sports vision training program is tailored to the specific needs of the individual athlete and sport, so it is designed to provide the maximum benefit for their specific sport. 

Athletes who can benefit from sports vision training include those involved in team sports such as basketball, soccer, hockey, and baseball, as well as individual sports such as tennis, golf, and track and field. Any athlete who relies on their vision to succeed in their sport can benefit from sports vision training. 

What can you expect during sports vision training?  

A sports vision training program typically involves a comprehensive eye exam to identify areas of strength and weakness, followed by a series of exercises and activities designed to improve the identified areas. The program may include activities such as reaction time drills, eye tracking exercises, visual memory exercises, and contrast sensitivity training.
