Sport Vision & Better Performance
Sport Vision Training boosts your performance!
All sports start with vision. Every reactions start with vision. Therefore, athletes with superior vision skills perform better on the playing field.
When we see things, the image of objects is first caught by our eyes, reflected on our retinas, sent to our brain through optic nerves, and then recognized as an image there.
It is instant when the object is stationary but it takes generally 0.5 to 0.6 seconds when it is moving. Shorter "delay of perception" you have, quicker reflects and timing you can get. In this sense, Sport Vision is 'The Trigger' to level up your performance.
Sport Vision composes several different visual skills.
Perhaps you know that there are several important vision skills, such as, Dynamic Vision (Dynamic Visual Acuity), Eye Tracking, Peripheral Vision, Depth Perception, Eye and Hand Coordination, etc.
For example, Dynamic Visual Acuity is inevitable for baseball or cricket players.
Eye-foot Coordination is important for soccer or tennis players, while Peripheral Vision is crucial for basketball or handball.
Dynamic Visual Acuity:
Dynamic visual acuity enables you to see objects clearly when they are moving quickly.
This ability involves perceiving what's going on at either side of you without turning your head. Eye doctors test for peripheral vision loss by having you look straight ahead while lights flash at various angles off to the side.
This visual ability enables you to make spatial judgments, including how far away an object or person is from you.
Eye and Hand Coordination:
Hand-eye coordination is the ability of the vision system to coordinate the information received through the eyes to control, guide, and direct the hands in the accomplishment of a given task, such as handwriting or catching a ball.
The reason why your sport vision can be trained.
Just like strength and endurance for your legs or arms, your visual skills can be trained too! Why? Because mostly sport vision skills depend on the effect of eye-ball muscles those make eye-balls work much smoother and quicker.
Therefore, if you can train your eye-ball muscles, you can improve your visual skills – visual fitness and accuracy.
