Understanding Sports Vision
Sports vision is testing that is designed to visual abilities for athletic performance. Since sports require clear eyesight, sports vision testing is different from a traditional eye exam. These tests are utilized for athletic training and to improve your overall performance. Once we learn more about your condition, we can recommend eye exercises and vision correction that can enhance your skills in the sport you love.
Sports Vision Testing
Sports vision testing measures how well an athlete’s eyes perform. Our optometrists may start by having you read letters that are at least 20 feet away to test the accuracy of your vision at far distances. Along with that, we may test hand-eye coordination as well, since this skill is important for athletic performance. During your appointment, we’ll also check for any refractive errors and a contrast test will be provided to review how well you see color contrast in different lighting. If we detect any issues with your vision, we may recommend corrective lenses and at-home exercises to improve your eyesight.
