At Eversee Boutique Eyecare, we have experience working with athletes in collegiate and professional levels. To be highly successful, many sports demand visual skills functioning at a high level. Athletes work with trainers to improve their speed, strength, and stamina. Athletes perform repetitive patterns to build up muscle memory. There is an enormous connection to the eye, the brain, and how the surrounding space is perceived.
Eversee Boutique Eyecare can help take your athletic skills to the next level. A sports vision evaluation will include:
Comprehensive eye examination
Visual processing evaluation
Sensory motor evaluation
Picture two children playing catch with a ball. Pretend one child catches the ball every time, and the other child has trouble catching it. Maybe this child has blurry or poor eyesight. What if this child has perfect eyesight? Maybe if the child practices more, the catching ability will improve. Consider that this child has poor awareness of the space around them. When the ball is thrown, the child could perceive the ball closer or further than it really is. This would also affect the ability to catch the ball.
A visual processing evaluation will determine if there are any aspects of eyesight and vision contributing to athletic ability, and if there is anything that could be used to improve the athletic performance.
