Our vision is a vital part of the way we sense the world. We utilize touch, smell, taste, and hearing inputs as well, but a very large portion of our perception comes from vision, and an appropriately large part of the brain is dedicated to its function. Vision, generally, is our most accurate way of orienting ourselves and navigating. If you're reading this, you are likely well aware of the wonders of sight! It's important not to take our vision for granted, and to ensure excellent holistic eye care. Holistic Vision, your eye doctor serving Northeast Philadelphia and Huntingdon Valley, specializes in all types of eye care, including sports vision therapy. Both regular vision therapy and sports vision therapy involve vision improvement, although they focus on different aspects of sight.
Regular vision therapy helps correct vision problems without surgery. It involves correcting problems, or eye dysfunctions, in the eyes themselves, or visual processing problems in the connections between the eyes and brain. Vision therapy can aid children or others with learning or reading problems. It can restore vision lost from impairments, injuries, strokes, or chronic illnesses. After a comprehensive eye exam, your Holistic Vision optometrist can help you decide if you are a candidate for holistic eye care vision therapy.
Sports Vision Therapy
Sports vision therapy is a form of vision therapy useful for professional and amateur athletes of all types. It utilizes different sets of exercises to improve visual acuity, peripheral vision, and eye-hand coordination. Visual acuity is the ability to see objects or people in motion. These exercises can help you improve depth perception and more accurately track objects. Other exercises can improve your visual reaction time so that you react more quickly, for example, to a ball or other object coming at you. Peripheral vision exercises permit you to see more from the corners of your eyes, at the edges of your vision. Depth perception enhancement gives you better judgment of your distance from objects. These abilities to see more, in greater detail, and more rapidly can be terrific advantages for any athlete, or really, any person. Eye-hand coordination, and in some sports, eye-foot coordination, can also be improved by appropriate exercises. The amazing thing about these exercises is that, by natural means, they enhance, or improve, visual abilities we all possess.
