Sports Vision at Prescott Valley Eye Care
When someone talks about sports vision, it is important to protect the eyes from the unique pressures brought on by sports participation. At Prescott Valley Eye Care, we are committed to providing eye care to help you get the edge you need in your sport and in your life.
Eye Care for Sports Eyes
Participating in sports is a great way to stay active and healthy, but because we spend more time exposing our eyes to the elements, and our opponents, it definitely puts an added layer of responsibility on Doctors of optometry to keep our eyes safe.
Providing the Right Eye Protection
At Prescott Valley Eye Care our optometrist, Dr. Courtright has more than two decades of experience in taking care of the eyes of both children and adults.
Protecting eyes against injuries is among the top priorities for athletes of all ages, and sports eyewear quickly becomes a necessity. Wearing protective eyewear can help to stop the more than 40,000 eye injuries caused by sports. Possible dangers include
- flying balls or rackets
- sun and wind exposure
- other environmental debris, such as sand, gravel, insects,
At Prescott Valley Eye Care, we can discuss the types of activities you participate in, and help you find the right glasses or goggles that will provide you with the protection you need.
Enhancing Vision for Better Sports Performance
Seeing better on the field or court can make a big difference when it comes to sports performance. Because of this, the field of optometry has made different advances in glasses and contacts that help athletes do their best and give them an edge over their competition.
Testing for someone concerned about sports vision goes beyond the standard comprehensive testing and can help measure and find ways to improve
- Hand-Eye Coordination
- Depth Perception
- Ability to track motion
By evaluating the results of these tests, we can determine whether any help with ocular alignment or tracking is needed. It also can identify eye dominance and measure depth perception and make sure your eyes are working as a proper team. One of the least complex ways to tackles sports vision issues is to opt for contact lenses or LASIK surgery. At Prescott Valley Eye Care we manage Ortho-K prescriptions and other types of contact lenses that were created with sports vision in mind. We also monitor LASIK patients and counsel them on how to take care of their eyes before and after the procedure.
