Clarity of vision (static visual acuity) is critical in all visual sports.
This factor will be tested in addition to sensitivity to contrast, which may be even more
critical in athletic performance. Contrast sensitivity measurements give an indication of
visual sensitivity to detail. Dynamic visual acuity is a measurement of how clearly an
athlete can see moving objects. Any athlete who needs follow-up care in these categories
should be seen by a sports vision specialist.
