These skills are what make the difference between professional play and weekend casual fun. Fortunately, these visual processes can be refined and improved through sports vision therapy. Using a series of drills and exercises customized to the player and demands of top basketball, Dr. Brandon Walley will work to retrain the neuro-visual processes which define how well an athlete performs these crucial visual tasks.

Vision Skills Required By an Elite Basketball

Let’s take an example. The point guard is constantly surveying the court of players in motion. Who is open? When will they become open, based on all the moving parts of the game? Accuracy is everything and that depends entirely on visual processing skills such as predictive visual memory and peripheral vision to take in all the variables in motion on the court. It also requires exceptional and real-time reaction processing to choose the pass or shot that stands the best chance of success. And the same is true for any other position on the court.

This is where sports vision training can help. Dr. Brandon Walley conducts assessments, drills, and exercises to expand a player’s peripheral vision so they can see the whole court and anticipate moves by the opposing team. At the same time, Dr. Brandon Walley will also work to improve hand-eye coordination, which leads to better ball handling skills and reaction time so that the player can be faster and adapt perfectly on-the-fly to high-speed play dynamics.
