Almost every sport is driven by the ability to see. You can likely improve your overall performance in your sport by enhancing your visual abilities.
Why? Your eyes guide your body. As an athlete with a well-trained body if you are unable to use your eyes to their full abilities, you will not perform at your full potential.
Athletes in all sports and all levels have found that vision plays an important role in their sports performance. Commonly it is the one thing that keeps a good athlete from being an exceptional one. It also can be the all-important factor that leads a good athlete into an elite athlete.
Sports go beyond simply strength and skills. Your eyes are what drives and directs your movements, so it is critical that your eyes be properly trained as well. Skills such as visual concentration, eye-hand coordination, visual memory and your peripheral vision are all vital parts of Visual Performance Training.
By investing your time and energy in Visual Performance Training you can greatly improve your performance no matter what sport you enjoy!
Highly interactive and fun, you can begin to see the results in your activities in a short period of time.
KEY COMPONENTS OF A PROGRAM
Specialized Training Program To Resolve Post Concussion Visual Disturbance
The eyes have been called the “window to the soul.” The eyes are also a window into the brain. When a person suffers a sudden blow to the head, the result is known as an Acquired Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or Concussion. The brain becomes inflamed, just as a sudden blow to the body produces swelling, bleeding, and many invisible biochemical and neurophysiological effects.
67% of the neural connections within the brain are involved with some aspect of vision, whether it is visual input, visual perception, or visual integration. With so many of the connections within the brain involved with the process of vision, it is no wonder that vision problems are so common following an acquired TBI. (We are not just talking about seeing stars).
Upon being concussed, CT/MRI scans only show results in Major TBIs (less than 10%). The vast majority of Acquired TBIs do NOT result in a loss of consciousness (also less than 10%), making diagnosis challenging. Many mild and sub-concussive TBIs go unreported.
The use of the eyes can be used to help diagnose Acquired TBIs. Since the “neural software” of the visual system is intimately woven throughout most of the human brain, a TBI, even mild, can result in visual problems that can dramatically affect the quality of life of the victim.
We provide training for Convergence Insufficiency (CI), an eye teaming deficit that affects approximately 8% of the population (1 of 12 people). CI can be caused by a traumatic brain injury (even a concussion).You do not outgrow CI, which is why without specific training it can have a lifelong impact on your vision and overall well being. It’s a vision condition that causes headaches, double vision and reading difficulties.
Convergence Insufficiency affects a person's ability to:
Why Do I Need This?
You likely want the best equipment available to play your sport. Part of your equipment list should include the best eyes you can have. Our experience with NCAA athletes is that 30% have a vision deficiency that needs to be resolved. Some of the vision deficiencies are considered minor but faster recognition and a a few milliseconds of accuracy, can likely make a difference. Don't let your game time performance be restricted by a visual issue, something you may consider to be minor but could out to have a major difference.
What Makes This Different?

We determine, measure and then recommend how you can exhibit the type of vision that scouts are looking for in terms of eye-hand and eye-body coordination speed and accuracy.
MLB Scouting Analysis
We have provided our Visual Performance Analysis for several MLB organizations. Our recommended players for drafting in the 1st round include Giancarlo Stanton, Troy Tulowitzki, Ryan Zimmerman, Adam Dunn, and numerous others.
Additionally we have helped players prepare for the draft including Michael Conforto, Andrew Susac, Matt Duffy, and oth
