Vision can be extraordinarily important for athletes. Peripheral vision, oculomotor skills and balance are crucial for many sports. Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoid vitamins that act as light filters in the human eye, and research has shown that supplementing these nutrients is beneficial. The best of supplement available is Performance Lab Vision, which contains 10mg of lutein and 2mg of zeaxanthin. It also uses European black currant extract, saffron and Astaxanthin (an extract made from algae), all of which benefit your eyes. You can get Performance Lab Vision at the company website for $40.
- Athletes who compete at the Paralympics are sometime vision impaired and we really don’t understand their prowess because we have our full vision.
- Athletes use their vision a lot while in the field because one minute they are scanning for the ball while the other they are checking out the opponent.
- The ability of the human eye to span an object is about three degrees and that means we have to focus the eyes on an object.
