Ready to Get Your Vision Into Shape?

It takes way more than strength and speed to be at the top of your game.

The skills required by an athlete — those that make the difference between good and extraordinary — depend on vision skills which can be perfected.

Baseball, tennis and football are examples of sports games that require the skills and abilities to keep your eyes focused on the ball.

Football receivers and quarterbacks need a high level of tracking and depth perception to complete a pass, as well as high peripheral vision awareness.

Sports vision training can enhance the communication between your eyes, brain and body, to help you excel in your sport and turn your vision into an invaluable asset on the court or field.

I wish I was able to give more than 5 stars. Kari at the front desk was extremely helpful and insure... d I left a happy customer. She went over and beyond even calling other establishments so I can get my glasses with the insurance I had. Kari is the definition of a great worker that ensures every patient are being care for.

Good news and bad news… When I arrived for my appointment that was confirmed via phone yesterday t... hey told me they’d texted me Oct 30 (a week ago) to cancel. I checked my txt messages and I did NOT receive a cancellation text. I did however receive a CONFIRMATION text Oct 26. So something is amiss with their communication dept! No problem however as they got me back in next week. The good news…as long as I had a few free minutes I got my glasses adjusted. Candy, the gal that helped me , TOOK HER TIME to get it right! I’d fallen on my face several months ago and got the scratched lenses replaced but the fit was not quite right. Came in one other time to readjust and they still weren’t quite right. Candy spent all of 20+ minutes with me and even replaced the black dots to be sure they were right.THANK YOU CANDY! I truly appreciate your time!!

The ophthalmologist knew exactly what I needed and explained in detail regarding my eyes, my new eyewear, and then fitted me for new contacts with the newest technology.

Robert Eyecare is a busy place. That’s because they’re the best around at what they do. Normally... it’s a pretty long wait to get an appointment there, but… My wife had a scheduled appointment, and we went to it. I was due for a checkup myself, but hadn’t scheduled it yet. When we checked my wife in, the lady at the desk (Anna, thank you!) checked on my chart and asked if we would like to get me checked up also, as they had a cancellation. Of course, yes. And the checkup was smooth and quick and thorough, as always. Anna did not have to check and see if I wanted to get my checkup done that day, but she did. That’s above and beyond.

Sport Vision FAQs

I have 20/20 vision. Why should I do sports vision training?

Thinking that 20/20 vision is the equivalent of perfect vision is a common misconception. Visual acuity and visual skills are two separate things. Visual acuity tests measure how well you can read letters from a chart, but it can’t predict how well you’ll see the ball or how quickly you’ll react to visual stimuli. It's common for people with 20/20 vision to lack the visual skills needed to truly excel in their sport.

What does sports vision training involve?

The sports vision specialist will consult with you, administer eye tests, and provide you with a custom-designed treatment program best suited for your needs and aspirations. During the weekly in-office sessions, the specialist will assign home exercises, measure your progress, and adjust the program as needed.

What tests do I need for sports vision?

During the initial consultation, a sports vision specialist will give you an eye exam to determine your eye health and visual skills. The eye exam may test the following: 

  • Visual acuity
  • Contrast sensitivity
  • Eye tracking
  • Focus 
  • Depth perception
