Sports Vision Training can build, strengthen & enhance vision to reach your absolute peak athletic performance!
There is more to athleticism than power and speed.
Vision is the pathway to the brain.
Developing sensory skills complement the physical skills.
plus many others!
Multiple Object Tracking
Perform activities effectively with a fraction of your normal vision information while wearing Senaptec Strobe Glasses.
Senaptec Strobe glasses generate a “strobe-like” light which causes interruptions in the athlete’s vision creating a situation where the athlete has to perform the activity with less visual information. This activity can be incorporated into many sports drills and exercises. Professional athletes like Steph Curry and Mets baseball players have used stroboscopic training and have publicized the benefits making this method popular and much more well-known.
The “mental approach” to an athlete’s vision skill training.
Adding this component to your sports vision skill development will train you to:
Achieve “flow” for peak performance.
Get back into the “zone” when events of the game go against you.
Manipulate, balance and control visual functions of the nervous systems.
Flow Performance Training
Developing your mental approach to reach your ultimate peak performance goals.
The visual performance skills improved in our sports vision therapy include:
Central and Peripheral visual attention
The sports vision experts at Christenson Vision Care and EyeZone begin the process of sports vision training with a basic eye exam, and an evaluation of the visual performance that is specific to the position and sport played. The eye exam helps the doctors determine areas of visual weakness or strength, and to use this information to develop specific sports vision training modalities to address any deficits in the visual system. Doctors Christenson, Flynn, and Soukup work one-on-one with clients to develop their visual skills and procession to improve reaction speed times.
This type of eye exam tests the athlete's ability to distinguish between increments of light that are finer and finer, versus a dark contrast.
Eye-tracking tests measure the ways in which the eyes track or follow moving objects. Tests may require participants to follow objects on a computer screen, or on a mechanical rotation device.
An important part of vision therapy is making sure both eyes are aligned to optimally work together. Testing can include covering one eye while offering the other eye visual stimuli, before uncovering both eyes to observe their responses to the same stimuli.
The athlete's ability to see in three dimensions can be measured by the Howard-Dolman Apparatus, a lit boxlike device that contains vertical rods that are manipulated through a system of pulleys and strings by the athlete.
