What Is Sports Vision Care?

Sports vision is a type of vision testing service we use to help athletes to determine just how well their eyes perform. This type of testing is more extensive than traditional eye exams. It can help you to determine the quality of your vision so that the athlete obtains the proper training and visual function enhancements necessary to perform at his or her best. We’ll look at key factors related to your vision including your hand-eye coordination, eye tracking, and depth perception, all critical elements that determine how well a player performs.

How Our Eye Doctor Can Help You With Visual Therapy

Visual therapy for sports athletes is not uncommon. The first step is to provide a more thorough screening of your vision. This is done using the Snellen Eye Chart, which positions you about 20 feet away. This is a basic eye test to ensure visual acuity. When there is the presence of any refractive error or change in the size or shape of the eye that changes vision and reduces 20/20 vision to a lesser amount, you may want to consider more advanced treatment options. This may include the use of LASIK procedures to eliminate the need for prescription eyewear.

We will also provide a contact sensitivity test. You’ll need to identify the orientation of parallel gray stripes against a background that features various colors. This allows us to see how well you can see in low-light conditions. Our visual therapy also includes ocular alignment tests to evaluate how well both eyes work at the same time. This can help with depth perception and visual coordination.

Why You Need Vision Therapy Exercises Through Sports Vision Care

When you come in to see us for sports vision testing, we may recommend more advanced solutions. Some of our patients want to improve their vision to the highest level possible. If that is the case, we may recommend vision therapy exercises that work to strengthen your eyes and the muscles within them. This type of improvement in your vision will directly impact your athletic performance. That’s why it is very important for individuals who hope to perform well on the field to turn to their optometrist for enhanced screening.

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."
