Description:

Athletes at all levels are constrained by the amount of time available to pursue visual skill improvement. Before the athlete can work specifically on the opportunities for enhancement, we must know what they are. This course will cover the primary care athlete eye exam elements and concussion tests. You will learn how to identify and gather pertinent visual information based on the history and simple exam lane tests. We will also explore high-performance automated evaluation equipment. Don't stop there, come join the Sports Vision Lab to get the hands-on practice and learn to solidify those skills before returning to your office.
