We know that athletes spend countless hours working on strength and conditioning to build up their muscles to help them run faster, jump higher and excel at their sport. But an athlete’s VISION is one area that often goes over looked.
Sports Vision Training helps athletes strengthen the connection between the eyes, the brain, and the rest of the body. Scientific research shows that visual skills such as reaction time, hand-eye coordination, peripheral vision, depth perception, and visual processing can indeed be sharpened and improved with the proper training.

Visual diseases or conditions can severely affect you or your child’s social and physical development as well as their performance on the field. If they do not receive regular visual care, then they are at risk of developing life-changing conditions. A visit to an optometrist provides vital preventative care and, if needed, lenses, therapy, and other protective eyewear.
Success Starts off the Field
Nearly 90 million Americans actively participate in sports. The majority, however, do not see a visual specialist. Sports of all levels require optimal vision and athletes, especially young ones, require regular vision evaluations and testing to both maintain their health and optimize their performance. Athletes that don’t care for their vision give opponents an edge on the field and open themselves up to risks that can severely affect their playing careers and life off the court.
If you’re an athlete or the parent of one, a sports vision training assessment from Elite Eyecare and the Senaptec Sensory Station will give you the edge you need both on the court and off. By utilizing the world’s most advanced visual training system, you can get the edge you need in just 25 minutes. It all starts with a phone call to our Abilene offices today.
After a visit to Dr. Liles, you will not only have a thorough evaluation of your visual health (including testing vital to the early detection of visual conditions and diseases), you will be provided clear training for improving each of the most vital visual skills.
Do you ever wonder how a goalie deflects a puck traveling 100 MPH or how a center fielder can spot a miniature ball in the sun and perfectly time his dive so it lands in his glove? Perfect vision.
