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.
