What is performance vision training?
Most eye exams have you read the eye chart, give you an eyeglass prescription to make the letters clear if needed, and make sure your eyes are healthy.
This evaluation has more to do with vision as a sense as opposed to the eyeball as an organ. Things that relate to sports performance, school performance, traumatic brain injury vision, problems that are functional in nature even though patients have been told there is nothing wrong with their eyes or that they have a healthy eyeball.
Do you take insurance?
At this time, we do not take insurance. In my practice, I found that most clients find it more cost-effective to pay out of pocket because of high deductibles.
What is peripheral vision processing?
Peripheral vision processing starts a few degrees off center vision. It’s just not way out by your ears. Peripheral vision goes into the brain 25% faster than center vision. It has to do with protection, like when you see something out of the corner of your eye and avoid an accident. Also navigation like when you walk through a doorway or drive in your lane. Peripheral vision is used when your eyes land in the right place while tracking when reading. It’s also the secret to the zone where the ball is bigger and moving slower.
