Sports Vision in Wapakoneta, OH

Sports Vision

Nowhere is it more obvious just how reliant we are on our eyesight than when we participate in sports. In fact, almost 80% of perceptual input when playing sport is visual. There are countless different ways in which your vision is important, from assessing other players and people around you to determining how fast a ball is traveling and which direction it is traveling in. Seeing clearly is one thing, but when you are engaged in sports, you need to be able to see with complete accuracy when things are happening around you at speed. Failure to do so will not only affect your ability to participate in sports but could also put you and those around you at risk of injury.

While conventional eye tests are important for checking the health of your eyes and to ensure that you can see clearly if you are a serious sportsperson, only proper sports vision testing can ensure that you stay at the top of your game.

We are delighted to be able to offer comprehensive sports vision testing right here at our offices in Wapakoneta, OH.

What is Included in Sports Vision Testing That Isn’t Normally Assessed in Conventional Eye Tests?

If you are an athlete, there will be certain aspects of dynamic vision that will be more important for you than perhaps someone who doesn’t participate in sports at such a serious level – in particular, your hand-eye coordination and reflex reactions. These specific vision skills could make a huge difference to your success in your chosen sport. As a result, when you opt for our RightEye Sports Vision EyeQ program, you can benefit from testing that comprehensively assesses the following vision skills:

  • Eye movement speed
  • Processing speed
  • Dynamic visual focus
  • Smooth visual pursuit
  • Simple reaction time
  • Choice reaction time
  • Binocular vision skills
  • Visual concentration
  • Contrast sensitivity

The data from each of these tests will be measured and analyzed against peers, amateurs and professional athletes. If the report identifies that there is a definite opportunity for improvements, our expert sports vision eye doctors will use their training and experience to create a personalized plan of eye exercises that can enhance your vision and skills, thus improving your ability in your sport.
