By the time you read this, hopefully the Astros have won the World Series. Regardless, they have had an excellent year of baseball! It’s amazing how well Altuve plays. Experts have tried to figure out how he can bat so well. One of the theories experts have is the fact that he can see the ball so well. It’s obvious that you would need to see the ball to hit it, right? The main thing the experts are talking about is how he can pick up the pitch quickly and adjust to hit it. To be able to do that, he must have great vision.
Good athletes need speed, strength, endurance and… good vision. If you or your children are not performing well in a sport, it could be caused by poor vision. It has been shown that approximately 80% of the information we take in during sports comes from our eyes. Vision that is even slightly blurred can reduce an athlete’s performance by 25%. That is why it is so important to make sure that your vision is the best that it can be. If your vision is poor, it may be easily corrected by glasses or contact lenses.
As technology advances, there are many options available, not only to correct an athlete’s vision, but to actually enhance it. Some of these options can even give advantages in particular sports. Digital colored lenses, contacts and safety lenses are just a few of the options available. If you are an athlete and would like to know if your vision could be improved, contact us today at James Eye Associates, 281-359-LOOK (5665). www.jameseyeassociates.com Have a great November and Thanksgiving! “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11.
