Fast near vision focus after forty is a fleeting thing! Think of that tennis ball or softball coming at you!
Our eyes have lenses in them behind the colored parts (iris) whose purpose is to focus clear at objects far away and then zoom in like a camera lens to focus at small things up close.
Some athletes are born with a weaker focusing system and in my book, See To Play, we give several exercises to help improve the focusing system. This focusing systems starts weakening in all of us after the age of forty, and sometimes the same exercises found in my book for the young, will also help the over forty athlete.
Since I wrote my book in 2012, there are several vision exercise developments that aided people in keeping their focusing systems working better instead of succumbing to the aging process.
One such app that has been recommended to me over and over is the Glasses Off App.
This app as been shown to help people keep their focusing ability moving so they can put off grabbing reading glasses to help them see a menu or focus on the computer. If we extrapolate that out to the athletic world, it quite possibly is helping them focus better on incoming targets such as tennis balls and softballs.
