In this presentation we will discuss empirical evidence behind combining Sports-specific Vision training with established training techniques of Optometric Vision Therapy. We will use ice-hockey as the sport of choice, discuss associated popular sports vision drills and describe a recent study that we conducted that tested different combinations of Sports Vision training with targeted oculomotor training. We will highlight the best evidenced-based approach to training and will discuss the utility of using electrophysiological measures in combination with sensorimotor testing to monitor training progress. Finally we will identify existing gaps in the literature, outline further research directions in the area of SVT and consider various factors that may influence training progress.
