Gain An Advantage Through Sports Vision Therapy
Coordination, concentration, balance and accuracy are just a few of the skills related to vision that high-level athletes depend on for success. Vision can affect your batting average, your free throw percentage, your ability to catch a ball or pass a hockey puck accurately. Successful athletes have sophisticated links between their brain, their muscles and their eyes which can be enhanced and improved through sports vision therapy.
We also love to help the average student or the amateur athlete who wants to be able to successfully play sports during PE at school, on recreational leagues, or with friends at the club to improve confidence.
