Sports Vision

To be successful in sports, a person must have a good vision. Being able to see the ball, the opposing players, and the playing field is crucial for athletes. Even if you are not a professional athlete, it's vital to make sure your vision is up to par so you can perform your best in any activity.

Are you a sportsperson who feels their vision has deteriorated for the past few months? Visit us at New Vision Optical Wilmette.

Sports Vision Skills Needed for Great Performance

Eye-tracking: Being able to track a moving ball is essential for athletes in many sports, such as tennis, baseball, and football. Those who have trouble tracking a ball may benefit from vision therapy.

Peripheral vision: It's important to be aware of what's happening around you on the playing field. Players need to have good peripheral vision to avoid being surprised by an opponent or a ball coming from the side.

Depth perception: This skill is important for athletes who need to judge the distance of a ball, such as in golf, basketball, and soccer. Those with poor depth perception may have a hard time judging how far away an object is, making it difficult to judge the strength of a shot.

Hand-eye coordination: This skill is crucial for athletes who need to hit a moving target, such as in baseball and tennis. Athletes with poor hand-eye coordination may have trouble making contact with the ball.

Eye focusing: Changing focus quickly can be important for athletes who need to track a moving ball, such as in tennis, baseball, and basketball. If you can't focus as necessary, a visit to an optometry clinic can help determine the cause.

Dynamic visual acuity: Sharp vision allows you to see a ball clearly when it is in motion. With excellent visual acuity, you can see the ball and other players without struggling and perform your best.
