Have you ever faced down a 90-mile-per-hour baseball, or a tennis serve that seemed to be propelled by rockets? Whether you’re an elite athlete or a weekend warrior, your vision is essential for athletic performance. After all, you can’t hit a baseball or return a serve that you just can’t see. At Schaeffer Eye Center in Hoover, we offer SportsVision exams to assess skills like dynamic visual acuity, visual concentration, and visual reaction time and show you how to improve your performance.

Our Hoover eye care center also assesses injuries such as concussions that can affect your vision in both short- and long-term ways. Check out this Infographic to learn what vision skills you need for sports and to discover how a concussion can affect your vision as well as your overall health. Please share with your friends and fellow athletes.
