Sports Vision

Flint and Partners Optometrists have invested heavily in our SportsVision service and were delighted to be awarded SportsVision Practice of The Year at the Optician’s Awards.

When the difference between coming first and second, scoring a goal or hitting the crossbar or looping that squash shot right into the corner can be as little as hundredths of a second or fractions of a millimeter, having that visual edge is all important.

Edward Lyons is our Sportsvision Optometrist, and, since passing his Diploma in SportsVision practice in 2006 has helped hundreds of athletes across a plethora of different sports, from 24 countries around the world!

His clients have gone on to win local, domestic, national and even World titles – including some Team GB medallists – from Premiership Footballers and Rugby Players, TT Racers, Olympic Archers to Shotgun Shooters.

Raise your game

Whether you are an Olympic athlete or a recreational sports player, a customised sport specific eye examination could help raise your game.

Data shows that over 82% of all sensory information is visual – only a part of this relates to how clearly we see, but also involves Binocular Vision, Dynamic Fixation, Spatial Awareness, Depth Perception, Tracking and Eye Dominance.

Our research shows that vision and sport are directly linked, therefore deficiencies in one or more of these key visual facets equates to reduction in performance.

This expertise allows us to determine your sport-specific visual strengths and weaknesses and offer appropriate advice to assist in overcoming any problems you may have. We are able to provide the highest standards in optical solutions for your sport, giving you the best quality vision combined with the most practical and efficient safety eyewear from brands such as Adidas and Oakley.

Children & Sports Vision

A full range of protective eyewear is also available for children. When consulting for a club or sporting association, We work closely with coaching staff and provide a detailed report about each athletes visual status along with recommendations as to possible treatment and visual management programs.

An invaluable tool for any age

Whilst this is an invaluable tool for Senior players, it is just as important at Junior level: at a young age, our visual system can be very responsive to treatment, and the early diagnosis and management of an otherwise undetected visual deficiency will allow the player to progress and develop unhindered to their full potential.

“I won the 1st Pietro Bortolin Memorial and the 6th International Para Grand Prix… the service and professionalism I received was 1st class; my target pick up is now quick and precise rather than the blur it was before”.

“After lots of 18m over the last couple of months, it’s easy for 70m to look so far away! Not with these Prescription Pilla’s in blue though! Absolutely loving my prescription 580’s in 32 MXB and the awesome 35 Dead Centre tints!”
