Sports Vision Training for Basketball Skills

Sports Vision Training for Basketball Skills

There are numerous visual-perceptual skills that make the difference between a great and an exceptional basketball player. Strength and basic coordination are not enough to be at the top of the game.

Susan Mulderrig, Jared Herzberg, Jordan Rendert, Debbie Staw and Eric Waldo , together with the attentive staff at The Sports Vision Center at EyeCare Associates, will ensure that you receive top-notch eye vision therapy to improve these crucial skills.

The visual skills required for elite basketball performance include:

  • Predictive visual memory
  • Peripheral vision
  • Real-time reaction processing
  • Hand-eye coordination

These skills are what make the difference between professional play and weekend casual fun. Fortunately, these visual processes can be refined and improved through sports vision therapy. Using a series of drills and exercises customized to the player and demands of top basketball, Susan Mulderrig, Jared Herzberg, Jordan Rendert, Debbie Staw and Eric Waldo will work to retrain the neuro-visual processes which define how well an athlete performs these crucial visual tasks.

Vision Skills Required By an Elite Basketball

Let’s take an example. The point guard is constantly surveying the court of players in motion. Who is open? When will they become open, based on all the moving parts of the game? Accuracy is everything and that depends entirely on visual processing skills such as predictive visual memory and peripheral vision to take in all the variables in motion on the court. It also requires exceptional and real-time reaction processing to choose the pass or shot that stands the best chance of success. And the same is true for any other position on the court.

This is where sports vision training can help. Susan Mulderrig, Jared Herzberg, Jordan Rendert, Debbie Staw and Eric Waldo will conduct assessments, drills, and exercises to expand a player’s peripheral vision so they can see the whole court and anticipate moves by the opposing team. At the same time, Susan Mulderrig, Jared Herzberg, Jordan Rendert, Debbie Staw and Eric Waldo will also work to improve hand-eye coordination, which leads to better ball-handling skills and reaction time so that the player can be faster and adapt perfectly on-the-fly to high-speed play dynamics.

Sports vision training enhances all these neuro-visual skills for maximum speed, accuracy, and performance! Give us a call for a free consultation.

Dear Valued Patient,

With all the news and information coming out about the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), we are taking necessary precautions to ensure the health and safety of you as our patient, our staff, and our community. In addition, we are continuously checking for updates from both the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Optometric Association (AOA) on guidelines as to what, we as your health care provider must do and be aware of. All of our offices are diligently practicing proper hygiene through handwashing by both the optometrists and staff, and the disinfecting of all of our equipment and surfaces in the waiting room, pre-testing, optical, and exam rooms.

In addition, we are advising any of our patients with flu-like symptoms including fever, cough, and shortness of breath to stay home, as well as those who have traveled to any country on the CDC advisory list in the last 14 days. For those who are not experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, we advise taking similar precautionary measures such as washing your hands often and disinfecting and cleaning any frequently touched surfaces.

If you are considering changing or cancelling an upcoming appointment please call one of our offices and discuss options with a friendly staff member. Your health and safety is a priority to us, so any same day cancellations due to illness will not be subjected to a $50 cancellation fee due to the circumstances. Otherwise, we look forward to your visit and will hopefully see you soon! For more information on COVID-19, ways to stay healthy, and what to look out for, please visit the CDC.gov.
