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.

Dear Valued Patient,

At Family Eye Care, the health and safety of our patients and employees is our top concern.

Our office has a long-standing practice of disinfecting all areas of our office throughout the day, and all clinic areas are disinfected prior to every patient seen.

As always during the peak of flu season, and with the growing concerns around the Coronavirus, we have taken extra measures to increase frequent cleaning and have provided additional training and precautions to our staff to help keep their health and yours safe.

As a reminder, if you have fallen ill, have traveled abroad, or had close contact with someone who has traveled abroad within the past 14 days and are due to be seen for an appointment, please let our office know. We will be happy to change your appointment to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you.
