How Does It Work?
Our services focus on improving optical systems (your eyes) as well as your perceptual system (your brain). The basic visual needs for SPORTS are defined as follows:
Being able to focus on an object.
Being able to scan the areas.
Precise eye movement.
Seeing without looking.
Where an object is in space.
Following the path of the ball.
THERE IS MORE!!!
it is much more than just the six basic needs. We evaluate, test, measure and train on the following nine items:
Dynamic - this is how well you can see while in motion.
Static - this is how well you can when NOT in motion.
Coordination between extremities
Convergence - moving the eyes to be able to see a specific object at a specific place.
Divergence - moving the eyes to be able to scan the field or playing area.
This is seeing off to the side without looking.
This is also working on the minds ability to see what the brain picks up on and learning to see what the brain process. We call this "working memory".
The ability to follow an object in time and space.
This is being able to tell the smallest difference in what an object is doing or moving.
Distinguishing the smallest differences in flight of the ball or path it will take.
Making objects seem clearer and more visible.
Being able to respond quicker.
Being able to tell where an object is in space and how it is moving.
Maintaining clear focus also means to able to maintain stability and balance.
Keeping good head and body control will allow you to see better and increase all above visual demands.
