"Protection is key. Too often we are sending our athletes on the playing field in their day-to-day glasses.... Every athlete playing a sport should have a separate pair of eyewear that meets all the safety standards (even patients with no prescription and those wearing contact lenses)." - Dr. Jennifer Stewart
Congratulations to Dr. Stewart and Norwalk Eye Care for being recognized as one of the top 10 optometric practices in the country!
"...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."
"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."
“There’s acceleration training, there’s speed training, there’s plyometrics—a lot of options in the physical space. They’ve been maxed out. ...The sensory cognition, that neuro, is the new frontier. This is really the next phase of human performance.”
"If you're not seeing it, nothing else matters. Your eyes are the basis of your whole game."
