What Is Sports Vision Eye Care?
Sport vision eye care is dedicated to helping you see clearly when playing sports and on the field. Sports vision may be important for anyone at any age who wants to improve their vision and their performance while exercising or playing sports.
Sports vision will include:
- An eye exam to determine your depth of field of vision and
- Eye exam to rule out any vision disorders like astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness
- Choosing the right glasses for your eye care
- Choosing the right contact lenses that are properly fitted to your eyes
Do I Need a Sports Vision Eye Exam?
It's recommended that adults and teens receive eye exams once every two to three years. However, people with pre-existing eye conditions should get an eye exam done at least once a year.
In addition, children should also get an eye exam done at the age of three and up. It's important to listen to your child if they complain of vision issues, or visit an eye doctor sooner if you have symptoms such as:
- Trouble focusing
- Blurry vision
- Double vision
- Increased halos
- Sensitivity to light
- Vision loss
