The game of football requires a considerable amount
of speed and strength. Every player has a dominant
hand, foot, and eye that are controlled by the dominant
hemisphere of the brain. On the side of the dominant
eye we see an increase in tone of the musculature
on that side of the body. So, on the side of the non-dominant
eye, we see a decrease in tone.
In order for a player to be effective, he needs to
have equal output from both sides of the body. Eyelights
promote equal output by stimulating the non-dominant
eye and non-dominant hemisphere of the brain. One
of the best places to accomplish this is in the weight
room. Many players have one side that fatigues sooner
than the other. Eyelights stimulate this weaker side
allowing you to lift more and finish the set stronger.
With Eyelights we have seen strength improvements
at an average of 4-10%. This improvement allows the
player to become quicker and stronger, thus enabling
him to become a more complete player.
Coordination & Muscle Memory
On the offensive side of the ball there is a considerable
amount of coordination involved. Eyelights stimulate
the receptors of your non-dominant eye, creating greater
visual acuity. This will create an increased perception
of your surroundings, enhancing coordination, resulting
in more passes completed. Eyelights improve coordination
by stimulating the cerebellum where all learning and
movement (or muscle memory) begins. Therefore, by
wearing the glasses while running pass routes, a muscle
memory pattern will be established for quarterbacks,
running backs, and receivers. This "blueprint"
or "efferent copy" will allow offensive
tasks to feel automatic in nature.
Reaction time can mean the difference between missing
a tackle or stopping the ball in the backfield. Players
need to react to the movement of the ball. By using
Eyelights to stimulate activity of the non-dominant
eye you improve your ability to gather and process
information. The end result is heightened attention
and a quicker reaction time.
