Sports Vision Academy1

You’ve developed physical strength and speed, now it’s time to level up with our functional Sports Vision Academy.

digital eye cropThere is more to mastering athletics than mindset, motor skills and strength. And there is more to your vision than simply seeing 20/20. At the Sports Vision Academy we help you gain a competitive advantage by improving your visual performance.

Enhanced visual performance is the difference between being blindsided on the field and seeing that left guard with enough time to process and initiate your next move.

About 80% of the information in our environment is perceived through the eyes. How you convert that information into action is dependent upon 17 visual skills. Sports Vision Academy creates a customized program to train you to receive and process this information faster and more accurately.

Now You Can Focus More On The Game

So how does Sports Vision Academy train?

At Sports Vision Academy, our expert clinicians begin with a comprehensive visual acuity test to first assess and address any existing vision deficits, and/or need for tinted lenses to aid in clarity and visual contrast.

Next, we evaluate your unique visual performance baselines to develop your personalized Athlete Profile specific to your functional vision and the sport/s you play.

We measure and analyze eye movement, brain processing, and reaction time, among other markers. We also look to see how balance and coordination are affecting your field of vision and pay attention to tendencies such as, favoring one eye.

Your profile is then compared against the profiles of professional athletes to determine areas of improvement. Our doctors then develop and prescribe a vision training program as unique as you are.

Peak Performance is Attainable

softballlady cropPeak performance is attainable when you’re able to efficiently convert visual information into split-second reactions. Athletes ready to level-up need to maximize all aspects of their functional vision to effectively identify and track objects against various backgrounds within various conditions and lighting levels.

Quickly and accurately locating, following, and successfully calculating an object’s distance and speed is the difference between stopping that run and missing the ball.

Seeing clearly is different than discerning where an object is in space and determining its trajectory and speed.

Football

footballIn football, you’ve got to track and constantly recalibrate the distance and speed of objects and people in motion without losing focus. Catching the pass, connecting on that kick, or spotting the linebacker headed your way requires more than clear vision to avoid injury and make the winning play.

You need to be able to:

  • Quickly and accurately shift focus from one distance or object to another.
  • Focus at one point and register movement and objects in your peripheral vision.
  • Maintain the strength and stamina to track and decipher the distance and speed of objects in motion.
  • Rapidly process and convert visual input into actions which result in effective-eye-hand/body coordination.

All positions in football require dynamic visual skills, we will help you understand which are most important to you and train you to enhance their functions.

Basketball

basketballDepth perception is key in being able to shoot, pass, and evaluate the positions of teammates and opponents. In this fast paced game where everything is in constant motion, experienced players know they need to react quickly to ever-changing visual stimuli against varying backgrounds and peripheral distractions. And making the shot with seconds left in the game? That requires a whole lot of focus and concentration.

Players rely on their ability to make quick, accurate eye movements to instantly survey the location of the ball and other players in relation to the basket and court boundaries. All of these functional vision skills and more help you to be the best player you can be.

Sports Officials

SportsOfficialsFunctional Sports Vision is not reserved for athletes alone. Sports Officials also require similar skills to ensure they are officiating accurately and doing their part in keeping players safe.

Effective officials engage the same vision skills as athletes and the accuracy of their judgment calls require intense concentration, peripheral awareness, and depth perception. The official is expected to be aware of all aspects of movement in the game which contribute to eye strain and fatigue. When split second decision making can make the difference between a team’s win or loss, the Sports official must be conditioned for superior functional vision.
