Recently, I have incorporated Visual Perception Training into my Coaching Program using Vima Strobe Glasses. Here is the link to an article with video about the training process.

Very interesting.as an optician table tennis player in Scotland I find this fascinating.i will have a closer look and perhaps ask some questions if that’s ok?Interestingly it tends to be psychologists who get more involved in vision training as opposed to optometrists/opticians/ophthalmologists.
Where did this idea come from originally?By all means send me a PM if you would rather not discuss publicly.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Visual training has been a normal element for high level training for a long time. However, this technology is somewhat new. Many sports have been using strobe glasses and you can find a lot of videos on youtube showing their use. If you do a quick "google" you can find a number of published studies on the science involved.

Yes vision training has been used for some time as a branch of sports psychology. Not much used in the mainstream sports in the UK with only cricket and rugby being strong advocates of the method. A number of soccer teams have done some research but have never really adapted it for their first teams preferring to experiment with the youth teams. I will have a look at the academic papers and will certainly consider trying this for some of our top players. Like a lot of sports psychology results vary considerably from person to person often depending upon how much the athlete "buys into" the training.
Would be interesting to hear from others who have embrace such training?
