Sports Vision

What does this involve?

Sports vision tests and training help athletes determine how well their eyes perform, beyond a basic ability to see letters and objects clearly on a standard eye chart.

Many sports vision skills can be addressed to improve athletic performance, such as:

  • Hand-eye coordination, which helps athletes — including baseball players at bat — anticipate and hit a fast-moving ball.
  • Improved depth perception to aid athletes such as downhill skiers when they negotiate turns and avoid obstacles.
  • Eye tracking ability, which includes following and anticipating motion of a bouncing basketball.

The sports vision tests that assess how well an athlete sees sometimes also can be used to train athletes and improve visual function.
