Synopsis:
Beyond physical superiority, mental stamina, and smart play, most of the world's best athletes possess another specific advantage that gives them an edge. We're not talking about performance-enhancing drugs or blood doping, but something a lot more natural—good vision. Being able to follow a fastball as it flies over home plate, judge the shooting distance to a basketball hoop, or leap in the air to catch that spiraling football at just the right moment all depend on good eyesight. And maximizing one's vision can make all the difference between a good player and a great one. While wearing corrective lenses is certainly one way to sharpen visual acuity, it isn't the only one. In his new book, High Performance Vision, sports-vision specialist Dr. Donald Teig, shares his highly successful approach to visual enhancement.

During his work with professional athletes over the past forty years, Dr. Teig developed a series of visual and visual-motor performance tests to determine the strengths and weaknesses of their eyesight. After establishing an initial baseline of test results, the athletes were given specific exercises designed to improve their visual skills. He then tested them again and measured the results against the baseline. With each succession of exercises, their sight and motor coordination improved, as did their performance on the playing field. In High Performance Vision, Dr. Teig details his unique approach and offers his highly effective exercise regimen for improving your own vision.

If you've been looking for safe, natural way to improve your game, High Performance Vision offers the perfect solution. In a clear and reader-friendly style, it shows you how to gain the edge that many pros have used for years.
Dr. Donald S. Teig, OD, FAAO, has served as vision consultant to many professional sports teams in areas including baseball, football, and hockey. As the former director of the Institute for Sports Vision in Ridgefield, Connecticut, and founder of "The Training Room," Dr. Teig works with a multidisciplinary network of sports medicine experts.

Beginning over forty years ago, Dr. Teig pioneered work in sports vision and visual-motor performance training with major league baseball. Subsequently, Dr. Teig and his associates have worked with over fifteen major league baseball clubs, pro golf and tennis tours, several NBA basketball clubs, many Olympic teams, professional football and hockey teams, and dancers of the Joffrey Ballet.

Dr. Teig has written numerous articles on the relationship of vision to improved athletic performance. He has lectured throughout the world on this topic, and has developed much of the equipment and techniques being used in the field today. As a sports-vision specialist, Dr. Teig has appeared on several network television and radio programs, including featured segments of The Today Show, Dateline NBC, ESPN Sports Center, The View, and programs on HBO. He has also contributed to sports segments on New York's all-sports radio station, WFAN, earning him the nickname "Doctor Jock." .
