PEDIATRIC SPORTS VISION
Sports vision tests and therapy help younger athletes determine how well their eyes perform, beyond a basic ability to see letters and objects clearly on a standard eye chart.
Many sports vision skills can be addressed to improve athletic performance, such as:
- Hand-eye coordination, which helps athletes — including baseball players at bat — anticipate and hit a fast-moving ball.
- Improved depth perception to aid athletes such as downhill skiers when they negotiate turns and avoid obstacles.
- Eye tracking ability, which includes following and anticipating motion of a bouncing basketball.
Dr. Schuetz has helped us through vision issues since my son was 7. Couldn’t imagine going anywhere else. She has been supportive and knowledgeable throughout the whole process. Best of all, my boys aren’t afraid to go to the eye doctor because she makes them feel at ease.Jenine E
