What Are Sports Vision Exams?

It’s easy to think that all an athlete needs—or all they have—in terms of competitive abilities boils down to supremacy in musculature development and cardiovascular endurance.

But recently, vision has been the subject of greater study.  One part of this is obvious—of course, athletes need to see well; otherwise, how can most of them be expected to compete?

It’s not just base ability, however, or the mere idea that athletes, like most anyone, need their vision to perform their best.  More and more time and research are being put into training an athlete’s vision, like any muscle group or cardiovascular capacity, to reach ultimate and peak performance. 

The game is no longer about the athlete who can lift more and run faster and longer than anyone else—it’s about the one who can do all that and still keep their eyes sharp, focused, and clear on the goal ahead.  Those are the ones that win.
