Athletic performance is dependent upon many factors and all too often, vision is ignored once good visual sharpness or protective eyewear is obtained. Sports vision care with our Maplewood optometrist, Dr. Dennis Delesio, makes use of basic and developmental vision therapy. This therapy improves speed and accuracy of visual judgments, helps our sports-minded patients to better understand their movement capacity, and direct their movement appropriately. Enhancements in these areas provide our patients with the best chance to make the most of their talent and achieve a higher level of success in their sport. Basically, sports vision is a specialty field at Maplewood Vision Care that examines how athletes use vision in play, helping them to improve their performance by improving their visual skills. Our vision is composed of many skills, and much like exercise and practice can increase our speed and strength, it can also improve our vision skills. Our Maplewood optometrist focuses on specific vision skills and uses special exercises to improve them. There are certain types of exercises that can also be helpful when combined with a total program of sports vision care.
Maplewood Eye Care
Dr. Delesio knows that the philosophy behind testing and improving visual skills differs with each sport. For example, it’s important for a golfer to have good eye-hand-body coordination, depth perception, and timing. Visual memory is not as important, yet extremely useful for team athletes who must continually know where other players and objects are, in order to make their next move. Eye-foot-body coordination is crucial for tennis and soccer players, while peripheral vision is important for basketball. Skiers need contrast sensitivity, necessary to see every shadow in the snow in front of them so they know when to turn.
Some athletes and student athletes have visual difficulties and will require individual, professional attention from our Maplewood optometrist. These patients will not benefit from vision exercises alone and our assessment can identify your individual problems and needs, pertaining to your specific sport. A thorough eye examination at Maplewood Vision Care is the best place to start and be sure to always wear the appropriate protective eyewear for your sport.
