Sports Vision FAQs

What Is Sports Vision?

Those active in sports know the movement and how the roughness can affect the eyes. It is all about protecting the eyes, and we use these procedures and training to work with our patients: 

  • Ophthalmology
  • Optometry
  • Eye Safety Procedures
  • Visual Training

What Are Some Eye Safety Procedures?

It is all about educating and delivering the best protective eyewear. Sunglasses are among the most common because they protect against the sun's UV rays. We offer protective goggles or glasses for those in rough sports like football or other high-impact sports. 

What Is Sports Vision Testing, and How Does It Work?

Sports Vision Testing is also known as a visual performance evaluation. The results will tell the eye doctor what sports glasses are required to achieve the patient's top performance. It is an eye exam but only more extensive and designed for sports and training. The test evaluates the following:

  • Depth Perception
  • Eye Dominance
  • Ocular Alignment
  • Eye Tracking
  • Contrast Sensitivity
  • Hand-Eye Coordination and Visual Processing Speed
  • Visual Activity

If I Do Not Need Eyeglasses, Do I Need Sports Glasses?

The sports vision testing will answer that question. Some people do not need eyeglasses but may find themselves having a problem with depth perception, contrast sensitivity, or one of the others mentioned in the previous answer. Some only need protection for their eyes, and we can furnish them.

What Are the Benefits of Glasses for Activity?

Glasses for activity enhance the vision to bring out the best performance in an individual. Doctors concluded that 80 percent of performance comes from eyesight. Some examples are: 

  • Golf: Vision affects how the body is aligned, how well a putt is read, seeing the target clearly, and visual perception of the shot taken.   
  • Football: Vision affects the reaction times, changes in the game, seeing the ball and the players, and telling the distance between the players.
  • Archery: Vision affects the accuracy of hitting the target. It also tells how far away the target is.
