Sport Vision FAQs
Thinking that 20/20 vision is the equivalent of perfect vision is a common misconception. Visual acuity and visual skills are two separate things. Visual acuity tests measure how well you can read letters from a chart, but it can’t predict how well you’ll see the ball or how quickly you’ll react to visual stimuli. It's common for people with 20/20 vision to lack the visual skills needed to truly excel in their sport.
The sports vision specialist will consult with you, administer eye tests, and provide you with a custom-designed treatment program best suited for your needs and aspirations. During the weekly in-office sessions, the specialist will assign home exercises, measure your progress, and adjust the program as needed.
During the initial consultation, a sports vision specialist will give you an eye exam to determine your eye health and visual skills. The eye exam may test the following:
- Visual acuity
- Contrast sensitivity
- Eye tracking
- Depth perception
