This athlete can perceive twice as good on their right and is slower to react, or miss things all together, on their left. Simple behavioral changes to compensate can improve performance and increase safety whether you're on the field, in the office or facing threats.
An eye exam measures your ability to focus on an object clearly. SplitSage tests your cognition and measures where you can perceive objects better across your field of view. That means we measure when and where your brain catches up with your eyes and becomes aware that those objects are there.
It's called situational awareness. Ever wonder why the quarterback didn't throw to the open player?
Our eyes are constantly darting around taking in the scene in front of us in small pieces. With each split-second we can only see a few objects at time. Our brain pieces them together into an illusion where we see everything all at once. Think of your brain like a bucket and the objects around you like water. Once your bucket is full, no more water can get in. It simply spills to the ground until your brain frees up space a split-second later to take in more.
Everyone is different. Some people can perceive three times better in one area of their field of view than the rest. This is because our brains create perceptual blind spots where we will always be slow to become aware of things, and miss them.
It wasn't that the quarterback didn't see the open player. It's that they didn't perceive the player because they were in their perceptual blind spot.
