Sports Vision Training for Bowling

To become a good bowler, one needs strength and endurance. But visual skills, like eye-hand communication, depth perception and good balance, are just as essential.

Just as bowlers build muscle at the gym, sports vision training acts as a “gym” that helps improve the visual skills needed to succeed at the bowling alley.

What is Sports Vision Training?

Sports vision training is a customized set of exercises that help an athlete enhance the communication between their eyes and brain by honing the visual skills needed to succeed in their sport. Focusing, eye-tracking, peripheral awareness, visual reaction speed, dynamic visual acuity, and hand-eye-body coordination are just some of these skills.

Balance, Hand-Eye Coordination and Depth Perception

To be an accomplished bowler, you need not only to be physically fit but also have top-notch hand-eye coordination. Your eyes transmit the location of the pins and the gutters to your brain, which instructs your body how to direct the bowling ball.

While pinpointing the distance between you and the pins, and the distance between the pins, requires good depth perception, the ability to accurately roll the ball depends largely on maintaining balance. If your stance is shaky, the trajectory of the ball will cause it to go off-target.

This is where sports vision training can help.

Enhancing the Performance of a Bowler

We offer sports vision training to help athletes achieve their goals and take their game to the next level. A functional eye exam will evaluate your visual skills, after which we will create a personalized sports vision training program, catered to your specific needs and goals.

Contact Dr. Neil Margolis to optimize your visual skills and become the athlete you know you can be!

Our practice serves patients from Arlington Heights, Buffalo Grove, Northbrook, and Deerfield, Illinois and surrounding communities.

Sports Vision Training for Boxing

Eyes Are Vital in Boxing

Few sports rely on strong vision and visual skills as much as boxing — not only for success, but for survival. Swing and miss on a curveball? That’s just one strike. Don’t anticipate a right cross to the noggin, and you’re down for the count … or worse.

But even that right cross is only one of the myriad signals that boxers must visually account for during a match. On offense, a boxer constantly sizes up an opponent, seeking information on weaknesses to exploit. On defense, a boxer must closely observe an opponent’s every move, gesture, and muscle twitch to gauge danger, recognize feints, and prepare protection.

Having 20/20 vision is an advantage for a boxer, but having less-than-stellar visual skills can erase this advantage.

Boxing’s Visual Skills

boxing

Improving your performance and safety in the ring requires more than peak physical fitness, eyesight, strength, training, and smart nutrition. It requires superb visual skills: the ability of the eyes and brain to work together to block a punch or time your jab.

Visual skills consistently employed in boxing include:

  • focus
  • timing
  • hand-eye coordination: the eyes and body working in tandem to execute a move
  • depth perception: understanding how far away something is, like a clenched fist
  • eye mobility: tracking an opponent’s every move
  • peripheral vision: seeing to each side while looking straight ahead
  • visualization: envisioning success

At Visual Symptoms Treatment Center we will create a customized program to hone the visual skills you need most to succeed as a boxer. One visual-skill exercise that’s well known to boxers is gazing straight ahead while bobbing one’s head back and forth in a vertical U shape to simulate ducking an opponent’s punches to the head. We will work with you in the office to improve these visual skills, then provide exercises to help you develop visual skills at home.

If you box, first visit Dr. Neil Margolis for a thorough examination to ensure that your eyesight accords with the rigors of the sport and for us to evaluate your visual skills.

Our practice serves patients from Arlington Heights, Buffalo Grove, Northbrook, and Deerfield, Illinois and surrounding communities.
