Today is See To Play’s 5th birthday! And, we are having a very happy birthday!
Our fourth year was incredible, highlighted with the publication of the See To Play Vision Concussion Protocol. We’ve also ramped up production of our new Gaze Stabilization Exercise that will hit the market in 2016 (more to come on that in our next blog)
Our birthday present to you is to get back to the vision basics of athletic performance as stated in our book, See To Play: The Eyes of Elite Athletes. Athletes allow their vision to mess up their game. Here’s the 16 See To Play vision tips which athletes can follow so that they will reach their genetic potential in athletic performance:
1: See the best, be the best! See first, be first!
2: Athletes miss to the side of the better-seeing eye.
3: Being one unit off in an eye prescription alters an athlete’s reaction time.
4: Astigmatism likes the light and not the dark.
5: Elite athletes have a larger detailed vision zone.
6: Elite athletes have a larger area of extreme side vision.
7: Learn which eye you’re aiming with and use it wisely.
8: Be able to cross your eyes high and low and everywhere in between
9: Fast focus finishes first.
10: Eye-hand-body coordination is enhanced throughout a lifetime by many hours of
practice and repetition.
11: Most elite athletes started practicing their eye-hand-body skills early in life, well before
the age of six.
12: Good eye-hand coordination allows the world and activity to move slower and objects to
appear larger, helping athletes reach the zone.
13: Elite athletes can filter visual noise and keep their concentration.
14: Elite athletes use the mind’s eye to help them achieve athletic goals and sports-specific
15: Proper training, rest, and nutrition affect athletic performance and vision.
16: Never allow an athlete to push on his or her eye when in severe pain.
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.
