WHAT IS SPORTS PERFORMANCE VISION TRAINING?

In sports, you are only as good as your eyes. Sports vision training goes beyond basic eyesight to give our athletes the ability to achieve peak performance.

Over 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual. Every decision we make consists of four parts: visual, perceptual, cognitive and an action response. Through a customized training plan, an athlete is able to maximize these skills to increase stamina, flexibility and focus.

Every athlete, from recreational to the professional level, is looking for a competitive edge to enhance their performance. Performance vision training can transform a good athlete into a great athlete.

Different sports require different visual skill sets. Dynamic sports such as tennis, baseball and hockey have different visual demands than shooting, swimming and golf.

Just as strength training is used to help an athlete maximize speed, strength and agility, performance vision can help an athlete react faster, see more and improve their awareness. Athletes who have completed performance vision training remark that the game seems to “slow down”, and the ball or puck seems larger.


What People Are Saying

"...many young athletes work not only with their coaches, but also with private trainers to improve their athleticism, skills and even vision. For example, Performance 20/20, owned by Jennifer Stewart of Darien, opened in Stamford last year to help athletes improve eye-hand coordination, reaction time and athletic performance."
"I could not be happier that my goalies are part of your training program. There is no doubt that this training will improve their game. Every drill they did correlates to some facet of our game where goalies need visually to process a lot of information in a short period of time. As a coach on the field I do my best to create such situations in high repetition, but it's not easy and not nearly as effective as the training you're doing."
“Since training at Performance 20/20, I have a much better understanding of the power of our eyes.”

Research

"Athletes constantly rely on stereo vision to throw, shoot, and pass accurately. But while everyone knows athletes can train to get faster, gain muscle, or improve core strength, coaches have always chalked vision up to natural talent—until recently. As it turns out, people can actually inprove their stereoscopic vision with training, according to recently published research."
The specialists at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center have integrated neurocognitive and visual-motor approaches with traditional neuromuscular interventions in treating injuries.
