Sports Vision Therapy
Are You An Athlete?
Excellent visual skills are absolutely essential if you want to excel at your sport of choice, whether you play baseball, basketball, soccer, hockey, football, or any other sport. Proper visual tracking can help you keep your on a moving puck against the ice, while good peripheral vision can help you see opponents approaching from the side so you can avoid being tackled or having the ball stolen.
Why is Sports Vision Therapy Important?
Good sports vision can give you the ability to see more of the field, court or rink in front and to the sides of you and help you react faster to the visual information you’re receiving. This can make all the differene between a homerun and a strike, a made or missed 3-pointer, or a caught or fumbled ball in the end zone. But beyond gaining an edge over the competition, better peripheral vision and quicker reaction speeds can help you avoid impacts with the ball or other players, preventing injury.
In Sports, Approximately 80% of Perceptual Input Is Visual
