Abstract

A survey was sent to sports vision specialists and vision consultants of 102 major colleges and universities for current visual testing procedures of athletes. Fifteen percent were returned. The information received from the survey and a review of the current literature involving sports vision testing have been assembled into a practical guide for the vision specialist with a need to screen athletic teams. This screening guide includes far and near visual acuity, far and near cover tests, distance retinoscopy, near point of convergence, color vision, depth perception, and accommodative rock.
