SPORTS VISION TRAINING: WHAT IS IT AND CAN IT IMPROVE PERFORMANCE?

Sports vision training works on improving an athlete's visual skills - contrast sensitivity, depth perception, eye-hand coordination, visual reaction time, dynamic visual acuity, visual tracking, focusing, and peripheral vision.

CAN SPORTS VISION TRAINING IMPROVE PERFORMANCE?

Scientific studies prove that sports vision training can improve athletic performance. Sports vision training programs are currently used by many college and professional sports teams. Additionally, individual athletes in sports ranging from tennis to baseball and hockey have used sports vision training to gain an edge on the competition.

“Many athletes need excellent vision to perform well in their sports, and now many are adding something new to their practice regimens: vision training. The idea has been around for years, but only recently have studies hinted that it might really work — that it might be possible to train yourself to see better without resorting to glasses or surgery.”

SPORTS VISION TRAINING SOFTWARE

Sports vision training software allows athletes to isolate and train their visual skills without the cost or space required to purchase large pieces of equipment. We use two state-of-the art software packages - Ultimeyes and Vizual Edge - in our sports vision home training curriculum. Analyzing data from both programs gives us a comprehensive understanding of an athlete's visual capabilities and it allows us to track their progress across two separate sports vision training methods.

 

SPORTS VISION TRAINING EQUIPMENT

Sports vision equipment is a great way to supplement software-based sports vision training programs. Our favorite sports vision training tool is the Sports Vision Ring. The rings look deceptively simple, but they are very difficult to master. That's probably why former MLB slugger Manny Ramirez considered vision rings one of his favorite sports vision training exercises.
