The sports vision training program at Advanced Vision Therapy Center is considered a premiere Pacific Northwest sports vision training program. Our program is recognized for delivering research based sports vision training that is goal oriented and results driven. We provide a comprehensive approach to athlete vision care and visual skill development.
Athlete Vision Assessment
Every athlete undergoes an Athlete Vision Assessment. This allows our doctor to evaluate the visual skills necessary to compete at optimum levels. An Athlete Vision Assessment differs from an eye exam in that sport-specific visual skills are evaluated and compared to those of elite and professional athletes. This allows our doctor to:
Prescribe competition specific correction to achieve better than 20/20 visual acuity
Determine the precision, speed and accuracy of visual input
Evaluate how efficiently the visual system interprets the game
Athlete Vision Profile
The visual abilities evaluated during the Athlete Vision Assessment are analyzed and, in conjunction with the elite and professional athlete performance comparison, are used to develop the Athlete Vision Profile. The Athlete Vision Profile is a sport specific overview of the visual strengths and weaknesses in context to the position played and the desired level of competition. This Athlete Vision Profile is the foundation of our individualized sports vision training program, and allows our doctor and professional vision training coaches to tailor the program to the specific needs of the athlete.
Individualized Vision Training Program
Sports vision training makes good athletes great. The individualized sports vision training programs at Advanced Vision Therapy Center provide targeted vision performance training, with sport and position specificity, to enhance and develop elevated levels of sports performance. All athletes work one-on-one with a professional sports vision training coach to improve visual performance deficits and address areas of weakness identified in the Athlete Vision Profile. The sports vision training programs at Advanced Vision Therapy Center are unique in that they are tailored to meet each athlete at their current level of visual performance, ameliorate visual performance deficits, and elevate the athlete's level of play. All sports vision training programs are under the supervision and direction of residency trained neuro-optometrist Dr. Ryan C. Johnson, who closely monitors progress toward performance goals throughout the sports vision training program.
