Myth #4: Therapy Can’t Help Athletic Performance

Vision plays an important role in the ability to succeed in sports. It's impossible to catch a ball or throw it accurately if you have poor eye/hand coordination, peripheral awareness, or tracking. Most professional sports teams; football, baseball, soccer, hockey, etc. have developmental optometrists on their “team” to help athletes become more successful. Vision affects all athletes and not just professional players.  Child athletes can benefit from better visual skills to help them hit a baseball, catch a football, or control their vision to be able to play better in every sport. Being better in sports can help improve a child’s self-esteem.

Vision Therapy corrects the vision problems that affect learning.  School and learning is then easier and more fun for your child.
