Ready to Get Your Vision Into Shape?

It takes way more than strength and speed to be at the top of your game.

The skills required by an athlete — those that make the difference between good and extraordinary — depend on vision skills which can be perfected.

Baseball, tennis and football are examples of sports games that require the skills and abilities to keep your eyes focused on the ball.

Football receivers and quarterbacks need a high level of tracking and depth perception to complete a pass, as well as high peripheral vision awareness.

Sports vision training can enhance the communication between your eyes, brain and body, to help you excel in your sport and turn your vision into an invaluable asset on the court or field.

Sport Vision FAQs

I have 20/20 vision. Why should I do sports vision training?

Thinking that 20/20 vision is the equivalent of perfect vision is a common misconception. Visual acuity and visual skills are two separate things. Visual acuity tests measure how well you can read letters from a chart, but it can’t predict how well you’ll see the ball or how quickly you’ll react to visual stimuli. It's common for people with 20/20 vision to lack the visual skills needed to truly excel in their sport.

What does sports vision training involve?

The sports vision specialist will consult with you, administer eye tests, and provide you with a custom-designed treatment program best suited for your needs and aspirations. During the weekly in-office sessions, the specialist will assign home exercises, measure your progress, and adjust the program as needed.

What tests do I need for sports vision?

During the initial consultation, a sports vision specialist will give you an eye exam to determine your eye health and visual skills. The eye exam may test the following: 

  • Visual acuity
  • Contrast sensitivity
  • Eye tracking
  • Focus 
  • Depth perception

I’ve been going to Dr. Bernier for about 15 years now and wouldn’t have it any other way. He’s... an incredible doctor- knowledgeable, kind, and truly listens to and cares for his patients. He’s a great advocate and I’m always so impressed with his team. I’ve heard stories from friends of them buying glasses and getting them adjusted at other places (specifically chains) and they are always very disappointed with the quality of product and care they receive. You won’t run into that here! Thank you so much, CEC!

Dr. Burke is excellent. Sharon my optical technician spent over an hour helping adjust 2 pairs of gl... asses that I had spent a ton of money for at another provider. She helped make my current glasses work and helped me with a new pair from their office for my technical work. I had tears of joy after I left. I could actually see!! Very few places put the EFFORT in like the Chippewa Eye Centre.

New patient process was absolutely seamless. Everyone in this office is so nice and personable. They... were great at handling every step of the appointment with no friction, explaining everything as they went. I was able to get my exam, pick out frames, handle costs/insurance questions, and complete extra testing with no hiccups. I highly recommend this office and will continue to visit for any future eye care needs I have!

Dr. Bernier is the best. I have seen opthalmologists and optometrists in 5 states: NY, PA, IA, KS an... d MO. Because of a congenital eye condition, I have worn glasses since age 2. I was first examined by Dr. Bernier while he was volunteering at the Society for the Blind and Visually Impaired. In all my years of getting fitted with the proper prescription, I had never had a doctor who made that process seen calm and unhurried. Not only that, but the prescription was significantly better than any I had ever had. I was curious to see if Dr. Bernier would take the same calm unhurried approach while in his own practice. Well, I can assure you that he does. I have been a very satisfied customer for 20+ years and have not been shy about recommending his services to others. Dr. Bernier--and all of his staff-- give customer first care from the moment you enter the door.

I always have a great experience at Chippewa. Dr. Bernier very intelligent and goes above and beyond... for his patients. The staff are all super friendly and knowledgeable about what they are doing. I know I'm always getting a great experience and product here and thats what keeps me coming back!
