Athletic performance is not only about strength and speed. How quickly and efficiently athletes can process visual information, including the ball, teammates, competitors, and the field, can determine the outcome of a game. 

Just like training other muscles, visual functioning can be strengthened. Many professional athletes and teams have used sports vision therapy to fine tune their visual functioning and provide a competitive edge. However, you don’t need to be a professional to find benefits from vision training. Young athletes and children who have difficulty with balance and hand-eye coordination can find great success in vision training not only on the field, but in many aspects of daily life. 

 Vision therapy can enhance athletic performance by strengthening: 

  • Depth perception
  • Reaction time
  • Eye alignment 
  • Eye tracking
  • Peripheral awareness
  • Visual motor integration (hand eye coordination) 

If you or your child would like to enhance their athletic performance, come in for an evaluation!
