As an athlete, there are many different training options for improving your game. From agility to weight training, there are different aspects of performance that can be worked on. One that is not often thought about – your eyes. Yes, you can actually improve your visual performance which translates into better performance on the course, field, court, etc. Here’s how.
Reducing Glare and Light Sensitivity
Lighting plays an important role in game-time situations. From bright day-time games to competitions under stadium lights, the glares and shadows can impact the outcomes of almost any play/activity. Reducing your eye’s sensitivity to bright light and glare can help you come out on top.
Improving Contrast Sensitivity
Contrast sensitivity is the ability to distinguish an object from its background like trying to identify a dark football soaring across the night sky or distinguishing two similar colors like when two opposing teams have similar colored jerseys. Improving contrast sensitivity can help improve your game on many levels:
- Identifying the rotation of a baseball
- Locating the puck as it flies across the dark stadium ceiling
- Pinpointing the slopes and deviations of the green
Reducing Dryness and Irritation
When your eyes feel dried out or irritated from the environment, it’s hard to concentrate on the competition in front of you. Relieving that discomfort allows you to focus on overcoming the on-field/court/fairway/ice/screen challenges.
Increasing Visual Processing Speeds
When your eyes take in the information in front of you, they process it and transfer that data to your brain, which then processes it and allows you to make a decision. Believe it or not, you can actually decrease the time it takes your eyes and brain to process that information, shortening the time it takes you to make the decision and giving you the upper hand.
