dc.description.abstract Sports vision has been a part of sport for a long time, probably since an athlete was first told to: ‘keep his eye on the ball’. It is only recently that athletes are beginning to realize the advantages of using their eyes to their full potential, and the difference it can make in an athlete’s performance. This is more prevalent today, where athletes can become instant hero’s and earn huge salaries. For a number of years specific instruments were used to test specific visual skills and norms were calculated for these skills. A few questions arises though when the norms for these visual skills are carefully studied. The purpose of this study was to evaluate previous norms and to develop norms and protocols for sports vision evaluations. Various visual skills were examined and previously used results evaluated. Key performance indicators in the evaluation of an athletes, as well as the cornerstones of sport vision were also discussed. Only elite athletes were used in this study. en
