Vision Training Products
Physical prowess, agility, coordination and strength have always been the main criteria in judging athletic ability. And all athletic training programs have been designed with those criteria in mind, even though our body will only respond to what it can see. Despite this fact, little attention has been paid to vision, which is not the last frontier for those interested in improving their performance on and off the playing field.
This last frontier, the optometric discipline known as sports vision, starts with regular eye exams and with making coaches and athletes aware of how important vision is to athletic performance. But regular eye-exams and the use of corrective lenses are just a beginning. By undertaking a simple visual training program, an athlete can improve his performance. That's because the eye, like the muscles in our bodies, can be strengthened to perform better with exercise.
Some of the skills that can be enhanced with training are:
Tracking--the ability to follow a moving object smoothly and accurately with both eyes, such as a ball in flight or moving vehicles in traffic
Fixation--the ability to quickly and accurately locate and inspect, with both eyes, a series of stationary objects, one after another, such as moving from word to word while reading
Focus Change--the ability to quickly look from far to near and vise versa without momentary blur, such as looking from the dashboard to other cars on the street, or from a book to the chalkboard.
Depth Perception--the ability to judge relative distances of objects and to see and move accurately in the three dimensional space, such as when hitting a ball or parking a car.
Peripheral Vision--the ability to monitor and interpret what is happening in your side vision while attending to a specific central vision task; the ability to use visual information perceived from over a large area.
Binocularity--the ability to use both eyes together, smoothly, equally, simultaneously and accurately.
