Vision & Age
What is sports vision?
To stay competitive on the playing field you need peak performance from your entire body and your eyes are no exception. Sports vision is "full-scope" primary eye care that can help you optimize these three key visual skills:
Contrast Sensitivity lets you see fine details from a distance like the subtle contours of a golf course
Dynamic Visual Acuity keeps your vision as clear when you're running as when you're standing, so you can see every obstacle
Focus Flexibility keeps a ball in sharp focus as it moves toward or away from you
Which visual skills do I need?
Every sport poses unique challenges: glare, wind, haze, and close encounters with moving objects. Every sport has unique demands: for depth perception, peripheral vision, eye-hand coordination. Discover which visual skills are most important in your sport. And why.
Can contact lenses help?
Contact lenses are an athlete's dream. Contact lenses can increase peripheral vision. You can easily wear appropriate protective eyewear over them such as goggles or sunglasses. And you can quit worrying about broken frames or lenses. Plus, contact lenses don't fog up, slide down, or fall off. That adds up to better vision when you need it most.
What kind of lenses should I try?
Most athletes say that disposable contact lenses are the way to go. You can replace them daily, bi-weekly, or monthly whichever schedule works for you. More comfortable. Less maintenance. The bottom line: You see better.
