In the last twenty years Sports Vision has been acknowledged through clinical practise and the scientific forum as a speciality of the Sports Medicine. Using the expertise from the Optometry and Ophthalmology sciences, it offers its services not only in the diagnosis and correction of the ocular refractive errors (eg myopia, hypermetropia, astigmatism) of the athletes but also for the prevention of eye injuries and ocular hazards using custom-made protective eyewear for sports.
Most important is that Sports Vision scientists can improve the eye-hand co-ordination skills as well as the eye tracking ability of the athlete/coach and the trainee by using specialised equipment. This will result in athletes gathering and processing useful information and respond quickly and efficiently in the context of a sport event. The speed with which this action is taken may distinguish winners from losers among athletes!
The scientific personnel of Optical House will be happy to inform you about the different topics of Sports Vision, for example the use of contact lenses depending on the needs of each sport or protecive eyewear that also protect from different hazards during the game!
Moreover, the eye-shaping contact lenses worn only at night (orthokeratology) offer a safe vision correction alternative for athletes, especially those engaged in rough sports.
