Many optometrists and ophthalmologists give excellent vision care. However, if you are really interested in an eye doctor to help you improve your sports performance, check out these websites:
www.COVD.org – Click on the “locate a doctor” link of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD) website. COVD Fellows are board certified in vision development and vision therapy.
www.AOA.org – Using the American Optometric Association’s (AOA) “Find an Optometrist” search tool, you can locate an optometrist in your area who is a member of the association’s Sports Vision Section.
