Vision training is a program designed to develop—or improve—fundamental vision skills that are essential to sports vision performance. Vision training is used to improve one’s ability to make accurate eye movements.
What is vision?
Vision is the ability for your eyes and brain to work together to identify, process and react to an object or perform a skill. Vision is different than sight (20/20, 20/40, etc.) and many individuals with great sight have poor vision, which ultimately catches up to them when they progress through their careers.
What is vision training and how can it be improved?
Vision is a trainable skill, just like any other muscle in your body, and something that can be enhanced through proper guidance. Vision training works to improve the speed and efficiency at which your eyes are able to tell your brain to tell your body what to do. Vision training needs needs to be consistent, customized and progressive, to ensure improvement. When these skills reach a high level of efficiency the visual system will continually perform at this level, increasing the speed and accuracy of one’s performance.

"As hitters, we always want to see the ball better, but often don’t actually train this skill. Vizual Edge fills that gap for me. I’ve really bought into both their training program and pre-game warm up and definitely recommend it to anyone interested in focusing on this detail of their game."
Infielder | Chicago Cubs
"Baseball is a game that requires great vision to be an elite performer. We are very excited to be partnering with Vizual Edge to help our players improve their decision making skills, process information more quickly and improve their vision to see the game more clearly"

"I loved using the 'Game Day' training mode before games this year to get my eyes warmed up and ready to track pitches or ground balls. The Tracking and Pursuit drills were particularly helpful and became a part of my daily pregame routine. I will definitely be incorporating the same drills next season!

"Vizual Edge is a game changer for our hitting program at Minnesota. Not only does this help train our athletes to better handle the complexities of velocity, pitch recognition, and sequencing but it's also essential for their long term cognitive health. The future of hitting is in training the brain and the mind, and Vizual Edge is on the forefront of developing a more efficient athlete to compete in today's game."

"Vizual Edge has been a great extra tool that I love to use to train my eyes…the training can help improve reaction time and visual memory, which in my opinion can only help you when it comes to playing baseball!"
Infielder | Pittsburgh Pirates
"I watched one of my players struggle with his ability to decipher pitches. In a very short amount of time, Vizual Edge gave him the ability to see better, compete and gain confidence in his game. I'd recommend this product to anyone looking to improve their game."

"Before it was a lot of swinging and missing, but after my training with Vizual Edge I cut down that swing and miss rate down by a lot."
Vanderbilt Univ. Commit | PBR '21 Top 10 SS
“We had a record season offensively and I don’t think it was a coincidence that it was the first year we have used Vizual Edge. We saw improvement from almost every single hitter this past year, and I know our hitters felt that was in part due to the vision training that Vizual Edge offers.”
