New Sports Vision Video with NBA Star Tyreke Evans and VSP


This new video from VSP is great! Not only is it pretty fun and entertaining, but it also makes a great point about the importance of vision and activities like sports. I'll be honest I don't know who  Tyreke Evans is, because I don't follow basketball, but I do know that vision is very important for sports! Not only do you need to see clearly, you and have to have  good peripheral vision and good visual reaction time; all of these things are necessary to win. The great thing is that if there are problems with any of these things, they can be fixed with corrective lenses or vision therapy!

This video shows that protecting your eyes on the court or on the field is very important. Regular glasses are not designed for sports and are actually less safe than sports glasses. And don 't worry,  the modern sports glasses are way cooler than the ones I had when I was a kid! Stop by Bright Eyes to check out some of the new models.

The VSP video also does a great job of highlighting the American Optometric Association's recommendation that the  first eye exam should occur at six months, then three years, then before kindergarten, assuming nothing is wrong.

If you have any questions about your little one's vision,  have concerns that vision may be interfering with sports, or whether or not they are protecting their eyes sufficiently during sports, ask us!
