SPORTS VISION IMPROVEMENT

Vision therapy can help athletes improve their perceptual speed, reaction time, 3D vision, peripheral awareness, and eye-hand coordination. We use the Nike Sparq Vapor Strobe training goggles in sport vision therapy to improve perceptual speed. (Athletes with seizure disorder should not use these goggles).

VISION REHABILITATION FOR SPORTS RELATED BRAIN INJURY

Concussion in sport is a significant problem for both professional and student athletes. Student athletes frequently suffer post-concussion vision residuals. These can vary from difficulty with dizziness, disorientation and balance disorders, to reading tracking, comprehension, and retention. Our Brain Injury page explains more.
