Issue 26 of Contact Lens Update, published by the Centre for Contact Lens Research (CCLR), University of Waterloo, features sports vision as an emerging specialization area. David Mann, from the Faculty of Human Movement Science at VU University Amsterdam in the Netherlands, reviews a European study of 157 Olympic-level athletes in a variety of sports, giving clues as to how clinicians might help customize their approach to optimize on-field performance for a given sport.
Kristin Dalton, Assistant Professor and creator of the Sports Vision Clinic at U of Waterloo in 2014, provides practical advice in her editorial overview on how to start up sports vision services in practice.
Dr. Dalton, and the new sports vision clinic were featured in the March 2015 issue of Optik (see page 32). In reference to Sports Vision as a rewarding part of clinical practice, Dr. Dalton concludes that, as in the beauty of sport, “anything is possible”.
