Sports Vision Services

Sports vision care is a specific kind of optometry concerned with improving athletes’ visual abilities. This the kind of care athletes can receive with our Kirkland optometrist, it is useful in assisting athletes in figuring out exactly how well their eyes are performing. Sports vision exams are much more than simple eye tests. We evaluate eyesight on a more comprehensive level by first using a standard eye chart, then a contrast sensitivity test in which gray stripes are placed against various backgrounds. Sports vision care also includes testing eye dominance, which is determined by concentrating on a specific object as it moves closer. Sports vision tests provide various benefits to athletes.

Benefits of Sports Vision Care Services

One benefit of sports vision care services is that we can correct contrast sensitivity problems by giving athletes eyeglasses with a special tint to help increase visibility. Another benefit of this type of vision care services is that we can design specific glasses to meet your needs. Once we perform the standard eye test, we can customize eyeglasses so that they are right for you regardless of your level of vision. The third benefit or these services is we can also determine whether a vision correction procedure is right for you. We may even be able to determine if you are the right candidate for a procedure like LASIK surgery.
