One of the challenges with visual impairments and visual deficits is that it's difficult to detect them just by looking […]
Skateboarding is a sport which requires high levels of body control, coordination, and quick reaction times. Additionally, skateboarding is generally done on hard surfaces, so improving key skills can not only help overall performance, but may also help avoid injury.
Sports vision training is customized training that gives athletes a major edge against the competition by improving the specific visual skills needed for the position and sport that they play.
While there are a number of vision skills that are important for skateboarders, some are more crucial to performance than others.
Core vision skills for skateboarders include:
Secondary visual skills for skateboarders aren’t necessarily any less important than core visual skills, though they are not quite as central to what is needed for a skateboarder to be successful.

Vision therapy is well worth the response, time and effort. Our Son had a hard time focusing and writing neatly. After vision therapy Seth could complete a task in half the time if previously took. His abilities to focus improved greatly and so did his handwriting.
Also, he was better at listening. As a parent, we wanted learning to be fun for our Son, and vision therapy made this possible.

Vision Therapy has given or son the tools he needs to be able to scan and read the written word more effectively and efficiently.
He love working with John and these working sessions give him the motivation to gladly work on his homework assignments.
It amazed us to see the difference in the tracking of his eyes and along a line of it's from the beginning to the end of the treatment.
Dr. McBryar , Kristen and John are all marvelous and we would recommend them to anyone I only wish that we would have found them sooner!
Prior to coming to the institute for vision development my son complained of daily headaches. Therapy has eliminated his headaches completely. I love knowing my son is able to learn pain-free for the rest of his life because of the work that has been done over just a few weeks in this office. He he absolutely loved coming that didn't even feel like going to a doctor or therapy. We are grateful for the relief he was able to find by coming here.
