Every athlete, regardless of skill level, depends on a team of professionals and coaches to help develop skills and improve athletic performance. A sports vision specialist is an important member of every athlete's coaching and training team.

Even if you have an eye exam every year and your eyes are healthy, you can still benefit from seeing our sports vision specialists at Advanced Vision Therapy Center, who specialize in sports vision. A typical eye exam doesn't test all of the visual skills used by athletes. Sports vision assessments are much more extensive.

At Advanced Vision Therapy Center, their sports vision assessments compare your visual skills to those of over 2,500 professional and Olympic athletes. The data gathered from the professional and Olympic athletes provide a baseline comparative analysis of a wide range of visual skills - all of which are key performance indicators.
