Ready to Get Your Vision Into Shape?

It takes way more than strength and speed to be at the top of your game.

The skills required by an athlete — those that make the difference between good and extraordinary — depend on vision skills which can be perfected.

Baseball, tennis and football are examples of sports games that require the skills and abilities to keep your eyes focused on the ball.

Football receivers and quarterbacks need a high level of tracking and depth perception to complete a pass, as well as high peripheral vision awareness.

Sports vision training can enhance the communication between your eyes, brain and body, to help you excel in your sport and turn your vision into an invaluable asset on the court or field.

Great doctor & staff!

They took the time to discuss the condition of my eyes, as well as taking the time to check in with ... me as a person. Good luck finding that at a Lens Crafters or larger national outfit! Couldn’t recommend them enough.

Staff were very friendly, and did a great job of explaining the procedures and results in a way that... was easy to understand.

Dr. Robbins and his staff are great. The Dr. Is knowledga and friendly. The staff too is friendly an... d helpful. Once you're with them you're in very capable hands. Just make sure you're talking with them and not "corporate", since ABBA is corporately owned. Do not trust the online appointment system. Make your appointment directly with the Gunnison office-- the first person who answes the phone for appointments will be corporate-- not Gunnison. I highly recommend Dr. Robbins and his staff, but the ownership situation can lead to confusion. Corporate also could stand to put some money into the outside of the Gunnison office. It has always been so cute, but is looking rundown. They've done a good job with the interior, so it's a pleasant surprise compared to the walk up. I'm rating a 5 for the Dr. and staff because they deserve it, but as you can guess, if I was rating their ownership my rating would go down.

One of the best eye doctors I've been to in my 30 years of needing corrective vision. Dr. Robbins ta... kes the time to explain the details behind what they are checking for and provides several recommendations to address symptoms in the least expensive way.

Dr. Robbins ("Dave") and the ABBA staff treat their patients with kindness and respect. Lettie was v... ery friendly and helpful! The technology they employ is truly amazing. I'm always pleased when a medical office runs appointments in a timely manner and they do. I highly recommend ABBA Eyecare.

Sport Vision FAQs

I have 20/20 vision. Why should I do sports vision training?

Thinking that 20/20 vision is the equivalent of perfect vision is a common misconception. Visual acuity and visual skills are two separate things. Visual acuity tests measure how well you can read letters from a chart, but it can’t predict how well you’ll see the ball or how quickly you’ll react to visual stimuli. It's common for people with 20/20 vision to lack the visual skills needed to truly excel in their sport.

What does sports vision training involve?

The sports vision specialist will consult with you, administer eye tests, and provide you with a custom-designed treatment program best suited for your needs and aspirations. During the weekly in-office sessions, the specialist will assign home exercises, measure your progress, and adjust the program as needed.

What tests do I need for sports vision?

During the initial consultation, a sports vision specialist will give you an eye exam to determine your eye health and visual skills. The eye exam may test the following: 

  • Visual acuity
  • Contrast sensitivity
  • Eye tracking
  • Focus 
  • Depth perception
