Athletes should have a high-quality level of vision, which is why athletes need to see an optometrist for routine, comprehensive eye exams.

Can a Pediatric Optometrist Help My Child with Their Sports Vision? 

A pediatric optometrist can help your child with their sports vision, ensuring they have a clear vision to participate in their particular sport. Additionally, the pediatric optometrist may recommend or prescribe a series of exercises for your child to help them improve their vision to meet their sports vision needs. 

Can an Optometrist Help My Child Improve Their Depth Perception? 

Depth perception is the ability of our eyes to judge the distance between different objects. Depth perception is key to playing sports, especially when needing to see where the ball and other players are at. Seeing an optometrist can help improve your child's depth perception through various eye exercises and corrective lenses. If needed, the eye doctor can design special glasses for your child's sport and to protect their eyes, allowing them to wear corrective lenses without having to wear contact lenses.
