In most sports, success is achieved by accurately made decisions based on information obtained by vision as 85-90% of an athlete’s sensory input is visual.
To be competitive in any sport it is vital to achieve the best possible performance from the whole body — including your eyes. However, research at the Olympic Games has consistently shown that over one fifth of athletes have visual problems.
“Few realise their eyes are in danger of being injured while playing sport. Eye protection is available but few choose to wear it.
