How vision training

works

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 training?
Vision training is essentially a method of teaching the eyes and the brain how to perform a skill more efficiently. Sight is a measurement usually designated by 20/20, 20/40. Vision is how the brain uses sight.
How can vision be improved?
Vision is something that can be learned and trained, but only with proper guidance. The visual system relies on past experiences in order to make judgments and anticipations for current and future experiences. Vision training 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.
Is there a limit for improving vision?
Vision training is teaching the visual system a more efficient way of operating. There is no visual age limit, efficient visual skills can be learned at any age. Vizual Edge works to help the athlete learn more efficient visual skills.

the core six

visual skills

As a result of intensive scientific research and decades of progressive development and case studies, the Edge Trainer is the leading solution for evaluating, training and perfecting the core six visual skills. Vizual Edge has found that athletes with better visual skills generally perform better in their sport.

Convergence

Convergence is the ability to focus on objects within close proximity and judge their movement.

  • Ability to focus on the ball as it approaches you
  • Connecting on a hit

Divergence

Divergence is the ability to locate objects in the distance, impacting an athlete’s ability to anticipate and react.

  • Ability to locate the ball off a serve
  • Ability to pinpoint a location on opponent's side

Depth Perception

Depth perception uses both eyes to locate objects in space to judge their distance, speed, and direction.

  • Judge spin, speed and trajectory of a shot
  • Locating the ball coming from a distance

Alignment

Proper alignment creates no difference between the perceived location and actual location of an object.

  • Lining up position to hit the ball
  • Crispness & decisiveness of movements

Recognition

Recognition is the ability to observe, process and recall a series of visual targets, and respond properly.

  • Anticipation & reacting to the ball
  • Overall decision-making & reading of the game

tracking

Tracking allows you to follow an object while continuously monitoring all other aspects of the game.

  • Overall anticipation & reaction speeds
  • Tracking the ball through the air

Use the portion of the bifocal that you would normally use to when viewing the computer screen, specialty glasses that have been prescribed for computer viewing distance will work as well 
When can I expect to notice improvements in my athletic performance?

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?
