What is Sports Vision Training?
Our optometrist, serving patients in Somerset, Franklin Township, and Manville, welcomes athletes who play any sport and wish to improve their visual processing skills.
If you play tennis, poor hand eye coordination can affect your ability to connect with the ball. If you're a basketball star, weak depth perception can result in a low free throw percentages. As these examples illustrate, whatever your preferred sport, sports vision training can help you correct weaknesses and strengthen skills. Many professional athletes swear by sports vision training for that extra advantage.
Sports Vision Training With Our Somerset Optometrist
When you see us for sports vision services, we start by testing your eyes. These eye tests focus on how well your eyes work together, track movement, and perceive depth.
We test your vision, just in case you have an undiagnosed vision error. Fitting you with the right glasses or contacts is an important first step. Other tests include contrast sensitivity, which affects your visual perception in low light situations, and alignment tests that track how well both eyes work together. The aim of all these tests is to identify weak visual processing skills to work on during training sessions.
When you train with our optometrist, we will give you exercises to perform at home and in our office. These exercises, which may use visual aids, strengthen your weak skills by promoting eye coordination, teaming, tracking, and movement. We may fit you with colored lenses or glasses to increase object contrast or help you accurately gauge depth.
