Sports vision training consists of improving eight visual skills important to sports performance. We are working closing with the USAFA Cadet Clinic in this area. Before an athlete can begin sport vision training he/she needs to get a complete sports vision exam at the clinic. Following the exam the athlete will come down to the Human Performance Laboratory and get pre-tested. The athlete then does conditioning exercises for 4 to 6 weeks followed by a post-test.
Typical improvements in visual skills range from 15% to 75% resulting in better athletic performance. The sports vision training encompasses some or all of the following areas depending on the sport:
We currently have many state-of-the-art vision enhancement capabilities. Each testing and training regime will be sport specific and the time involved in each assessment/training varies with each sport.
