Eyelights stimulate the receptors of your non-dominant
or weaker eye, creating greater visual acuity. This
will create an increased perception of the ball you
are about to hit, enhancing coordination and accuracy,
resulting in more fairways and greens hit in regulation.
Furthermore, stimulation of the non-dominant eye will
allow you to accurately read the green.
and Shoulder Turn
Light stimulation to the weaker eye will create an
increase in tone to the paraspinal muscles (stabilization
muscles of your spine) on the same side of your back,
allowing for greater recruitment pattern. A stronger
hip and shoulder turn will result in increased club
head speed. This allows you to not only hit the ball
further, but also prevent injury. Disc herniations
and muscle and ligament tears are a result of inequality
of supporting structures of your back. Eyelights promote
bilateral (both sides) equality of the paraspinal
muscles of the back.
The Eyelights have a timing pattern of 10 seconds
(blink on for 2 seconds and off for 8 seconds). This
has considerable application for golfers because it
aids the golfer in developing a set pre-shot routine.
This is a fundamental aspect of a successful golf
game. Many of the great golfers, including Nicklaus,
have set pre-shot routines of around 10 seconds. Additionally,
the timing pattern enhances muscle memory, resulting
in a swing that can be easily reproduced.
Stimulation of both hemispheres of the brain and cerebellum
will promote central stability. This will create global
improvements to strength, power, balance, and coordination.
This will enable the golfer to generate more club
head speed in a coordinated fashion, resulting in
a golf shot that flies straighter and further.
