What Can I Expect During Sports Vision Testing?

At Advanced Vision & Achievement Center in Phoenix, AZ, we provide a diverse range of vision tests tailored for athletes, aiming to analyze their visual skills and potential. Here are some of the tests we offer:

Snellen eye chart: This foundational test measures an athlete's clarity of vision. The Snellen chart consists of 11 rows of letters. During the evaluation, you'll be asked to read these letters from a distance of 20 feet, continuing until the letters are no longer distinguishable. Typically, the fourth line from the bottom denotes 20/20 vision, considered the benchmark for standard vision. If you can discern the tiniest letters on the chart, your vision is rated at 20/15. This means you can see at 20 feet what someone with regular 20/20 vision would need to be 15 feet away to discern.

Contrast sensitivity testing: This test involves identifying gray parallel stripes (or similar patterns) set against varying colored backdrops. As the test progresses, the background hues closely resemble the stripes' shades. A diminished contrast sensitivity can hamper an athlete's ability to track objects, especially in dim lighting.

Ocular alignment tests: Exams, like the Hirschberg test, are employed to evaluate the coordinated movement of your eyes. Using eye dominance tests, potential alignment issues are identified. These tests measure how your eyes focus on and drift away from a target, pinpointing the dominant eye. Such tests can also diagnose binocularity, a condition where one eye loses focus prematurely, leading to challenges in depth perception and visual synchrony.

I love this place so much. I absolutely would recommend this place to anyone with vision care needs. Dr Hardy is collaborative and attentive to your needs. Clear communication is something you don't get at other vision care places but Dr Hardy is on it. They don't overprice contact lenses either! They've even helped me out when I received a defective lens. I cannot recommend Dr Hardy or the staff here enough. 11/10 service, affordability and care if I could rate it that way.

I recently completed a series of vision therapy sessions with Advanced vision and achievement center. Thelma is my mentor for the eye exercises. From the outset, Thelma's friendliness and approachability set a comforting tone for the entire therapy process. Thelma's dedication to her work is evident in her meticulous attention to detail and her genuine concern for her patients' progress. She was incredibly supportive throughout the sessions, always available to assist and encourage me with each exercise. The individualized care and guidance provided by Thelma have made a significant difference in my vision. I have noticed a remarkable improvement in the coordination of my eyes, which has positively impacted my daily life. Dr. Forest and Thelma's contribution to my vision health has been invaluable, and I highly recommend their services to anyone considering vision therapy. Thank you for your exceptional care and for making such a positive difference in my life."

Hello, I'm very grateful for the care I've received from Dr. Amin and her staff. My vision has improved after a debilitating accident one year ago. Dr. Amin's expertise and guidance have helped me to make better progress than I imaged. It's been a long road to recovery, but I couldn't have done it without the team at Advanced Vision.
