I just wanted to write you with an update. When Lydia first tested with Vizual Edge in Dec. 2013, she scored quite low, 10th percentile. Tonight (Oct. 2014) she tested for the first time in 6 months, and tonight’s score put her in the 99th percentile! She hit her first over-the-fence homerun this past summer….after years of struggling with her hitting. She is now very consistent with quality at-bats. Her fielding (infield) has always been above average, but this summer she really took it to the next level and her quickness and charging the ball has definitely improved. She does seem to have had an improvement in the classroom too! We are so excited, and I firmly believe Vizual Edge has helped take her abilities to the next level. She is now being recruited by some of the top Divison 1 softball teams/schools! Thanks so much for helping us get started last December! And for the skeptical parents (like myself), it is legitimate and it works! Don’t delay. This can help your daughter play to the top of her abilities! ~ Pam Clanton, Mother
Vizual Edge has been a valuable tool for Islanders Basketball. Every member of our team has said how much it’s helped them in every area of their visual game. From picking up targets to depth perception to peripheral vision – our guys got better in all those areas. They also commented about how much it helped them off the court with their academics as well. I’m confident that using Vizual Edge made us a better basketball team last year, and we are excited to continue use it for the coming year.

Table Tennis Academy Founder Sees Great Improvement with Vision Training
by: Vizual Edge
People from ages 5 to 105 can play table tennis, which is one of the many reasons the game has become one of the most popular sports in the world. The game propelled into the spotlight when it became an official Olympic class event in 1988.
Even celebrities are into the sport. "Table tennis has been growing rapidly since the introduction of Susan Sarandon's spin table tennis in bars, restaurants and clubs," says Alan Gulick, professional player and owner of North Bay Table Tennis Academy. "Academy's really took off after researchers announced that they found table tennis can slow effects of Dementia and Alzheimer's the baby boomers really got into the sport," said Gulick.
After a consultation, and watching Gulick play, Robinson videotaped Gulick playing. "We videotaped him before we began training and then took another recording several weeks later and you could noticeably see the difference," said Robinson who firmly believes in visual training after conducting her own research. "I tried the program, and as a former professional soccer player, I wished they had this when I was playing. Vision is so important and can greatly impact playing a wide range of sports," said Robinson. Vizual Edge is a web based vision training program that many athletes say is compared to weight lifting for your eyes.
Within weeks of using the web based program Gulick says his game noticeably improved. "I am now able to play at the table, hit the ball and have time to think and react," said Gulick. Robinson took another recording after Gulick started using Vizual Edge and the results were incredible. "You could see how much his aim had improved and that his depth perception improved," said Robinson who trains athletes in multiple sports and highly recommends strengthening your vision.

Better performance on vision tests like counting flashing dots was associated with better catching.
Vision skills can lead to sports success, research claims
by: Martha Finnegan Bradford
The Irish Times (9/9/2015)
Researchers tested elite athletes such as rugby players, as well as sporty members of the general public and people who don’t play any sport.
Better performance on vision tests like counting flashing dots was associated with better catching, even under challenging visual conditions.
Some elite sportspeople performed poorly, so this is not the be all and the end all of sports performance, but it might be the extra one per cent that could win the game.
What’s not clear is whether this is an innate talent or something that developed over thousands of hours of practice.

Out of Sight

Eyesight is one of the most complex actions of the human body. It is one of our most important survival characteristics and crucial for performance in any sport. While the eye is an incredible organ in its own right, the real act of seeing occurs in the brain. This is where visual data becomes the world that we know and interact with. The world's most powerful computers cannot do what our brains do instantaneosly, every moment of the day. The eye is merely the starting point for our amazing visual system.
