If you're serious about your sports performance, you need to be equally serious about your sports vision. Visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, binocular vision, eye tracking and visual processing skills can make all the difference between performing to your usual standard and achieving a new personal best. Our College Station optometrist here at Crystal Vision Center, Dr. Brice, can administer sports vision testing and corrective techniques to help you optimize your eyesight as you play to win.
High-quality eye care is important for everyone in any walk of life -- but for those who engage in sports activities, optimal eye function and visual coordination are absolutely crucial, and the margin for error can be razor-thin. This is especially true for issues such as:
Our eye doctor offers a range of specialized, in-depth eye and vision evaluations for athletes. In addition to checking for refractive errors, we can run contrast sensitivity tests, Hershberg testing to detect eye coordination problems, and other specialized tests to catch even the tiniest impediments to your vision.
Once we've isolated those little deficiencies, we can proceed to treat them. Refractive errors can be compensated for with corrective lenses such as glasses or contacts. Sports glasses can also play a critical role in athletic eye safety. In addition to preventing damaging UV exposure, shatter-resistant polycarbonate lenses can help protect your eyes against injuries. Special tints on those lenses can also improve contrast. Vision therapy exercises can build your focusing muscles, while light-based simulations can help you refine your eye teaming/tracking, visual processing, and hand-to-eye coordination.
If you're ready to make sure that your eyes are performing at the same tip-top level as the rest of you, then it's time to talk to our eye doctor.
