4 out of 10 middle school and high school basketball won't make it to the NBA because of their eyes! Think about that...then think about all of that gym time and practice time trying to be the best ....while neglecting to take care of the one thing elite athletes all have in common.....great vision.
Without great vision, you will definitely be kept out of the NBA.
18.9 % of NBA athletes during this 2013 season wear glasses, contacts or have had LASIK surgery to see their best. This is the result from a survey that I sent to the NBA teams earlier this year.
54% of 18 - 29 year olds in the United States need some form of vision correction to see their best (Wow! 1 out of 2!). That percentage increases to 61% if we increase the group size to include people up to the age of 35 (which is the age group of most professional athletes….wow! 6 out of 10!).
The statistics suggest 40% of athletes don't make it because of their vision!
March Madness is a great time to get the message out about visiting the eye doctor to the countless number of young basketball players who have the desire to grow up to be the next LeBron James (who had LASIK) or make it to the NBA..
Help me spread the madness.....get your eyes checked and wear your prescription if you need it!
Welcome to my blog! I hope this helps you learn a little more about me and also keeps you up to date on my fun world of sports vision.
