Vision therapy helped the most exciting player in the NFL

Recently I met an interesting guy who played professional football in both the National Football League and the Canadian Football League.  Teams in both leagues were using vision therapy to improve the performance of their athletes.  Vision therapy is used, among other things, to improve visual processing, eye tracking and eye-body coordination so its no surprise that it is considered valuable in professional sports.

In fact, "the most exciting receiver in the NFL", according to the wall street journal , credits his success as a star receiver to the vision therapy he had as a child.  To learn more, read the WSJ article linked to above or this story from Marketwire.
