How clearly do you see? According to a podcast on Healthy Vision™ with Dr. Val Jones, great sport performance starts with how clearly the athlete can see. Healthy vision is important to good sports performance. The eyes tell you what you need to do in sports.
Listening to this excellent podcast is clear and easy on the ears. It may raise your awareness to the role vision plays in sports--whether professional or amateur. You will hear about eye exercises at home to help develop eye/hand coordination, such as playing often the game of table tennis. Practicing this fun game helps you see contrasts, depth perception, and increases visual motor processing.
Dwight Howard is an exceptional NBA athlete with great court vision. Dr. Val says that basketball is 97% peripheral vision but Howard emphasizes that depth perception is important too.
