Ready to Get Your Vision Into Shape?

It takes way more than strength and speed to be at the top of your game.

The skills required by an athlete — those that make the difference between good and extraordinary — depend on vision skills which can be perfected.

Baseball, tennis and football are examples of sports games that require the skills and abilities to keep your eyes focused on the ball.

Football receivers and quarterbacks need a high level of tracking and depth perception to complete a pass, as well as high peripheral vision awareness.

Sports vision training can enhance the communication between your eyes, brain and body, to help you excel in your sport and turn your vision into an invaluable asset on the court or field.

I appreciated the sincere interest Dr. Leahy showed in my eye problem.

I’ve seen lots of eye doctors, but Dr. Leahy is the only one who has ever been able to get me seei... ng well. He explains what he is looking for and why certain things work and do not work in terms that a layperson can understand. He takes all the time he needs to get things right. It is really nice that we have someone who really excels at his profession in such a small town. After ten years living out of state with insurance that would not cover IEC, I finally decided it was worth it to pay out of pocket just to see Dr. Leahy—and see again!

Sport Vision FAQs

I have 20/20 vision. Why should I do sports vision training?

Thinking that 20/20 vision is the equivalent of perfect vision is a common misconception. Visual acuity and visual skills are two separate things. Visual acuity tests measure how well you can read letters from a chart, but it can’t predict how well you’ll see the ball or how quickly you’ll react to visual stimuli. It's common for people with 20/20 vision to lack the visual skills needed to truly excel in their sport.

What does sports vision training involve?

The sports vision specialist will consult with you, administer eye tests, and provide you with a custom-designed treatment program best suited for your needs and aspirations. During the weekly in-office sessions, the specialist will assign home exercises, measure your progress, and adjust the program as needed.

What tests do I need for sports vision?

During the initial consultation, a sports vision specialist will give you an eye exam to determine your eye health and visual skills. The eye exam may test the following: 

  • Visual acuity
  • Contrast sensitivity
  • Eye tracking
  • Focus 
  • Depth perception
