and how sports vision training can improve performance
Archery is a sport which requires intense focus, concentration, and precision. The very nature of the sport requires that, and often things are compounded by both the pressure of competition, crowds, and the allotted time to make the shot. Improving key vision skills can lead to dramatic increases in performance.
Sports vision training is about identifying the neuro-visual processes that are essential for high level athletic performance, and creating a customized training program that helps the athlete excel at those critical visual skills. As over 80% of all information processed in competitive sports is visual, athletes who undergo sports vision training have an edge over their competitors.
While there are a number of vision skills that are important for archers, some are more crucial to performance than others.
Core vision skills for archers include:
Secondary visual skills for archers aren’t necessarily any less important than core visual skills, though they are not quite as central to what is needed for a racer to be successful.
Secondary visual skills for archers include:

I haven't actually used the optometrist side, so my review is limited to the vision therapy offered. This office was recommended by my occupational therapist for the treatment of my double vision following a stroke.
Love this location. I had a brain injury accident from day one one. All the team make you feel you still important and hope in the horizon after when the medical system fell you miserably. Dr. Ikeda very professional and very understanding about your issue. Two tombs up.
My husband and I were immediately impressed with Dr Ikeda. I was hit by a car while cycling which caused broken bones and three brain injuries. The brain injuries caused double vision. Dr. Ikeda examined my eyes and got me started on vision therapy with his occupational therapist who specializes in vision therapy. She (Chris) is absolutely great. I am impressed with the array of tools used to help recover my binocular vision. I am doing things I never thought were possible (balance boards etc). Chris pushes me and keeps me motivated. I really enjoy my sessions with her. The office staff is always friendly and they have a wonderful appointment reminder tool that makes it easy to keep my calendar up to date. I am happy the rehab center at Little Co. of Mary recommended them!!
The Vision Therapy is handled in a separate office through a different door from the shared waiting room. Chris, the vision therapist, has a wide and varied assortment of tools, equipment and resources to best evaluate and treat most vision issues. After just a few visits, my double vision became easier to control, using exercises developed during the therapy process. It was time well-spent.
I have been coming here since I can remember. I love it here. The staff is so amazing and nice. They explain everything they gonna do and never make you feel rushed. Dr. Ikeda has always been my doctor and I would never want another one. He is the doctor for my whole family and is always asking how everyone is doing. I am also so crazy about picking out my frames and have to try so many and each person who helps me take the time and lets me try them all on. I would never want to go anywhere else! I definitely would recommend this office to anyone looking for a great eye doctor.
