Eye and hand preferences were determined for 268 elite athletes and 90 non-athletes to determine occurrence patterns. Comparisons were made between athletes and nonathletes to evaluate patterns of ocular preference, hand preference and tendencies for homolateral or crossed preference. No significant differences were found for ocular or hand preferences in athletes versus nonathletes. Similarly, no significant differences were shown for homolateral or crossed preferences. Recommendations for standardizaton of evaluation technique related to eye and hand preferences are discussed.
