Sports & Performance Vision 

Sports & Performance Vision

Boerne Vision center can help you protect your eyes and address vision impairments that affect your safety and performance while engaged in sports.

 

About 89-90 million Americans of all ages avidly participate in sports. Many, if not most, sports-related eye injuries are preventable. Unfortunately, many patients and athletes are unaware of the risk associated with their physical activities and how to properly protect their eyes. Although athletes understand the need for sports equipment, sports shoes and sports clothing, many do not understand that sports-safe eyewear is just as important. “Dress glasses” are not meant for sports and can be broken—or worse—provide no protection against trauma. Improper eye wear and use can lead to decreased performance and vision, as well as increased chances of accidents. Athletes who do not properly address vision impairments will not perform adequately, and in many cases, will not be able to safely participate in sports. 

Concussions and traumatic brain injuries

For unavoidable injuries, the early detection and treatment of eye and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), including concussions, can prevent further harm, injury and accidents. 

Brain injury affects 2.4 million Americans each year. We focus on evaluation and assessment of common visual conditions associated with TBI, including binocular vision, accommodative and eye movement disorders, and other treatment and management of brain-injured patients over time.
