In the competitive world, conditioning is everything. Athletes who can get an edge have a better chance of moving up the ladder to more and more elite levels of play. But one aspect of conditioning that is often overlooked is vision.

Ignored or undetected problems in the visual system have stopped many athletes' progress before making it to the professional -- or even college levels -- and has even ended otherwise promising professional athletic careers. Vision can be conditioned just like any other physical attribute, and the earlier this conditioning starts, the better.

In See to Play, eminent optometrist Michael Peters, who works with many professional athletes and sports teams, addresses every aspect of this vital component of elite athletics. Included are in-depth discussions of all facets of vision accompanied by myriad exercises to help athletes hone and condition peripheral vision, acuity, speed of focus, eye- hand-body coordination, and more.

His techniques also help the older veteran athlete play young and the weekend warrior gain the edge!

Constructed for athletes of all ages, this essential book will truly enhance your or your child athlete's ability to see to play!

Review:

''See to Play is a must-read for athletes and athletic trainers worldwide; Peters has helped many minor league players reach the big leagues with these techniques. . . . A home run!'' -- Sandy Krum, Trainer, The Biggest Loser

''Dr. Peters discovered my eye disease, kerataconus, when I arrived in Raleigh during the 1999 - 2000 season. Since that time he worked diligently to keep track of my condition and keep the disease at bay. He has always given me the best care possible and I know that he will continue to provide me the most advanced treatment for my condition. I am extremely pleased to have Doc Peters on my team. -- Rod Brind'Amour, Carolina Hurricanes

''I had a wonderful experience working with Dr. Peters while recovering from my concussion. His techniques are cutting edge and results-driven based on his professional experience with countless athletes. Dr. Peters' ability to interpret and diagnose visual symptoms, along with the capacity to objectively measure one's progress in recovering from those symptoms makes consulting Dr. Peters a priority for any brain injury.
How concussions can affect the visual system, and how the visual system interacts with cognitive and vestibular functions during concussion recovery is just beginning to be understood. Dr. Peters is no doubt a leader in that research and a developer of new therapeutic techniques based on its findings. As a professional athlete, and having recently recovered from concussion, I would consider any treatment plan that does not include dorsal stream visual therapy as incomplete.'' ---- Jay Harrison, Carolina Hurricanes

''If you aren't seeing at your best, you're not playing at your best. Having the confidence that you can see the ball as well as possible is huge, especially when you have less than half a second to determine pitch type, location and whether to swing or not. Dr. Peters gave me the confidence to know I can see my best and compete at my best.'' -- Elliot Johnson, Tampa Bay Rays

''Dr. Mike Peters has been one of the best eye doctors that I've worked with and probably the best in the business. When I had my concussion in Carolina, he had to adjust my contact lens prescription several times while my vision was changing. He also helped me by giving me eye exercises which even included him coming to the arena for some of the drills.'' -- Matt Cullen, Minnesota Wild

''I first came to see Dr. Peters in the summer of 2008 when I was having a lot of trouble with my eyes. After informing him that I was a professional golfer and struggling with my putting, he asked me to do a couple of simple eye tests.

These tests immediately showed that my eyes aligned to the right and along with some exercises to rectify my problems, my putting has now become one of the strengths of my game. Dr. Peters also changed both the brand of my contacts and the type of solution I use and in the 4 years since, I have never had a problem. His professionalism and enthusiasm is inspiring and I look forward to continuing to work with him for many years to come.'' --Ewan Porter, PGA Golfer

''Vision is critical in any sport, and football is no exception. Athletes should commit to taking care of their eyes the same way they commit to taking care of their bodies. Dr. Peters keeps athletes vision strong so they can maintain a high level of performance throughout their athletic careers.'' -- Torry Holt, NFL St Louis Rams Super Bowl Champion, NFL Pro Bowl

''I've known Dr. Peters since my days in AAA baseball almost fifteen years ago and he understands how hard it is for athletes to make the jump to the Majors. See To Play helps trainers and athletes understand the important role that vision plays in making athletes their best.'' -- Paul Harker, A.T.,C, Training Staff, Tampa Bay Rays

''I'll never be able to get my SR year of high school sports back. I wasn't the level of player See To Play would write about but I lost a valuable year because of stubbornness and poor vision. All of the sudden, baseball was difficult and could have been made easier if I paid attention to my eyes.
Dr. Peters attacked a subject that athletes tend to take for granted: their vision. Great athletes are always looking for separators and this book makes you look differently and provides insight into an area that is not only valuable but can be improved without much stress. See To Play is an enjoyable read written by an expert whose opinion is valued at the highest level of sport.'' ---- Dave Telep, ESPN
