What is Sports Vision?

Sports vision is a field of optometry that focuses on eyesight as it relates to competitive athletics. Our optometrist will measure a few important fields. This includes depth perception, eye tracking, judgment, and reaction times. We have the ability to improve your eyesight, giving you an advantage when it’s time to compete.

Why is Sports Vision Important?

Sports vision is important when it comes to athletics for a number of reasons. First, most sports involve people tracking more than one object at a time. This might include a ball, multiple players, and an intended target. The brain has to be able to process all of this information quickly in order to react appropriately.

Next, sports vision is also important because it impacts athletic performance. The quicker someone is able to respond to changing conditions on the field of play, the more competitive they can be.

Finally, sports vision is also important from a safety perspective. Athletes need to be able to respond to changing conditions around them both for competitive and safety purposes. This is why working with professionals is important.
