The reality is that we all have elements of our visual system that can use improvement. A person with 2020 may still need to improve in their ability to track a fast moving object or to improve spatial recognition. The other thing many people assume is that sports vision therapy is only for professional athletes. While it is true that professional athletes do a lot of vision therapy, there is much to gain for all levels of competitions. The ability to play better improves the athletes self confidence and acceptance, and shows the true potential of the athlete.
