Taking visual skills to the next level
Does your son have trouble with his timing at the plate?
Do you wish you could shave a few strokes off your golf score?
Does your daughter always seem to be a few feet away from the soccer ball?
Have trouble returning your tennis partner's serve?
All of these challenges may be related to the way you see. Vision, just like strength and speed, is an important component of every sport.

Sports Vision Assessments
A primary eyecare provider will check for things like acuity at distance and near, the health of the eye, and the need for glasses or contacts. In addition to these standard tests, our office also performs more in-depth testing in a comprehensive eye exam. We examine every aspect of the visual system, including:
Eye Movement Skills: make quick, accurate eye movements
Eye Focusing: quickly focus on an object at any distance & keep it clear
Eye Teaming: proper alignment of the eyes to know where the target is located
Depth Perception: judge relative distances between objects
Eye-Hand-Body Coordination: direct the hands, feet or body efficiently due to visual information
Peripheral Awareness: be aware of surroundings while attending to objects straight ahead
Visual Memory: remember a fast-moving, complex picture of people and things
Visual Reaction Time: the speed that your brain interprets and reacts to visual stimuli
Visualization Skills: seeing yourself performing in your “mind’s eye”
