We thank the authors of this letter to the editor for their interest in our publication titled “Does Visual Performance Influence Head Impact Severity Among High School Football Athletes?” We also thank the editors for the opportunity to respond. In reply to the comments:
In summary, we stand by our conclusion that a 1-time preseason measure of visual performance was not associated with head impact severity among high school football players. These results reduce enthusiasm for the concept of intervening on this factor in a high school population, especially using a population-based prophylactic approach. However, our study was not an evaluation of a vision-training program. As stated in our article, further research will be needed to determine whether visual training reduces concussion risk.
