Good visual abilities are critical to the success of any athlete.  Both serious and casual athletes must develop their vision in the same way they must develop and improve their bodies.  Visual deficiencies can limit athletic performance and developing better vision (specifically sensorimotor skills) results in faster and more accurate reactions.

As a life-long sports enthusiast, Robert Jacobs, OD has a special interest in sports and vision.  He has worked as a vision consultant for the Titleist Performance Institute (for professional golfers) and with several NFL teams, for whom he did vision performance testing with potential players.

In his McLean office, Dr. Robert Jacobs has seen many patients specifically for the improvement of athletic performance, including college athletes, high school players of various sports and elementary school children fearful of PE/recess. Dr. Jacobs is an avid golfer, and he has evaluated and advised a number of golfers concerning the impact of vision on their golf game.

Please call the office if you would like to schedule a sports-related vision exam.
