Eye Doctor in Culpepper Assists Athletes in Optimizing Performance

Far beyond just a traditional eye exam or eye care, your eye doctor in Culpepper Eye Care of Virginia offers a full suite of services to athletes looking to perform at the top of their game. One of the foundational elements of sports vision therapy is sports vision testing.

Sports vision testing involves a series of processes and techniques to train the eyes to work in better cooperation and collaboration with the body. Many major league athletes use sports vision therapy to improve and enhance their performance.

The areas assisted by sports vision therapy include:

Hand-Eye Coordination - The importance of this ability is clear for those who play a sport. In some cases, eye-foot coordination is also essential.

Visual Tracking - This refers to the ability to follow moving objects smoothly, fluidly and accurately. 

Depth Perception - The ability to judge distances in relation to moving objects is also important to sports performance.

Visual Acuity - This refers to the clarity of vision, the ability to pick up on visual cues and act accordingly.

Visual Reaction Time - The connection of vision to key reflexes is also crucial to optimal sports performance. Sports vision therapy can assist with sharpening reaction time to a remarkable degree.

Peripheral Vision - Seeing from side to side is important for ideal sports performance in order to see opponents, teammates, and opportunities in the game.

Visualization. The ability to imagine a successful performance and result is also crucial to sports performance, and sports vision therapy can help. Visualization is important to both long-term goals and success on the field in every moment.

A range of state-of-the-art testing procedures are used to optimize vision in all of these areas. Some of the eye care and eye exam tests used by our optometrist in King George include:

  • Pursuits
  • Tachistoscope
  • Saccades

Optimizing Performance with the Vizual Edge Trainer

Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Press CARES about his patients, insurance or not AND he is the most thorough eye doctor I have ever been to. The prescription he gave me, made me see correctly, once again, I am so thankful. Dr Press and his staff are great!"
    Katrin H
  • "I'm so glad I changed eye doctors. I had been going to Dr. H by the hospital for a long time and he had given me a prescription for contacts that I tried and tried to wear with no success. Dr. Press gave the right "size" contacts and was able to walk out wearing the contacts with no problem! He has great manners and even took my blood pressure! Glad to have finally found a knowledgeable Optometrist I can SEE in a regular basis."
    Ines P
  • "I recently needed to change my vision prescription and was finally in need of bifocals. I went to see Dr. Miles Press for both convenience (local eye doctor) and because he accepted my insurance. I needed to have vision in my right eye adjusted several times, and several right lenses replaced. Dr.Miles Press worked tirelessly to make sure my vision was correct and I was never charged for each subsequent visit or lens replacement. I've never had an eye doctor like that before, that really cares and is fast and on the ball with knowledge to get you the correct prescription. He also cared that I went with Progressive lenses over bifocals because they provide three fields of view and eliminate the annoying line. To sum it up, an eye doctor that treats you like he would his own family is a rare experience. I will continue to go to Dr. Miles Press as long as he is in business and accepts my insurance. No question."

  • "I didn't know my vision could change, and I also didn't know that I could see the world more clearly than how I was already seeing it! Dr. Press was professional and very helpful and educating! Highly recommend!"

  • "Dr. Miles Press was very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. He explained a lot about my eye care that no Dr. has ever taken the time to do."
