the science behind
the edge trainer
The Edge Trainer combines 3D technology with decades of advanced clinical research in sports vision. The Edge Trainer exercises are specially designed to sharpen neural pathways between the eyes and brain, enhancing an athletes ability to optimize performance. With 80% of sensory information rendered through the ocular system, vision training is an essential part of any athletic training regimen.
Improvements in vision can occur as young as 8 years old. From Little League to Olympic training, athletes of all levels can benefit from training and perfecting the Core Six Visual Skills. Vizual Edge makes it easy to train with brief sessions that can be done virtually anywhere with an internet connection on both computer and tablet devices.

Typically, training takes place 3 times per week for 10-15 minutes per session.
How long does a session last?
A session can run for up to 20 minutes. Most athletes train for approximately 8 – 12 minutes.
What size monitor/screen is required?
Computers: Minimum screen size is 15 inches, up to a maximum of 26 inches (diagonal measure).
Mobile Devices: The smallest screen currently supported is an Apple iPad 1 which is 1024 x 768 px (or 768 x 1024 px if rotated).
What is the optimal viewing distance from the monitor/screen?
Approximately 18 to 24 inches is the best range.
Should I wear my glasses or contacts when I evaluate and train?
It is essential that the athlete wear proper vision correction and have their eyesight checked/corrected before using the product.
What if I've had laser eye surgery?
That’s ok! You can still train and perfect your visual skills with the Edge Trainer.
What if I use bifocals?
Use the distance portion of glasses for testing and training.
When can I expect to notice improvements in my athletic performance?
Typically, an athlete will notice an initial improvement in their ability to “see” the ball, puck, or field after 2 – 4 weeks of training.
What are the red and blue glasses for?
The glasses allow you to experience 3D perception. They are required for the Alignment, Depth Perception, Convergence and Divergence Exercises in both Evaluation and Training. They are not used for the Recognition or Tracking Exercises.
Can any red and blue 3D glasses be used?
Glasses from other manufacturers may not be color compatible with the Edge Trainer. Polarized glasses cannot be used.
Can I train during my season?
Yes. Our experiences with professional sports teams have shown that training is effective in and out of season.
Will this training affect my ability to read?
This type of training was originally developed for children with reading disorders. Since similar visual skills are used for both sports and reading, there is frequently a crossover benefit.
Will training reduce the need for the use of glasses or contact lenses?
This type of training will not improve your visual acuity or remove the need for contact lenses or glasses.
What is the ideal setting to do my evaluation and training?
Ideally, you would take the evaluation or training in a dimly lit room, minimizing glare on the screen.
If I stop training will my skills diminish?
Visual training is analogous to weight lifting – if you stop training your visual system will start to reduce towards your initial baseline score.
