Once the athlete has completed the sports vision evaluation and the visual skills profile has been created, we can build the training program. The training programs are tailored specifically to the athlete's baseline skill level. They are designed to target any weaknesses and to keep all of the visual skills in balance so the visual system will perform like a well-oiled machine. Depending on the initial skill levels, the programs will vary from athlete to athlete. Typically, the training programs are 8-10 weeks long. The athlete will usually spend 10-20 minutes a day, 3-5 days per week performing the drills. The programs are set up to allow the athlete to perform their drills at their home or gym. There are more intensive programs that include in-office or one-on-one sessions depending on the circumstances. Ideally, these programs are performed during the off-season of the athlete's sport. These training programs are like any other fitness programs; the more you put in the more you get out. Motivation and consistency is the key to getting the maximum benefit.
