Discover how the benefits of perceptual-cognitive training are moving beyond sports and into all aspects of our lives.
Dr. Richard Hoctin-Boes, O.D., is an experienced neuro-optometry and sports vision specialist from the Netherlands. He is the Director of eye4vison Neuro Optometry centre in Ridderkerk, a place nearby Rotterdam. From the beginning of Richard’s career he saw the potential of vision training. Since 2014 he introduced and implemented NeuroTrackerTM as instrument to further enhance the visual and cognitive performance of athletes and police/military. At the same time he developed the PuP® (Perform under Pressure) program and done several scientific studies and research to professionalize the program. As working in the field of performance he also got involved with rehabilitation programs for sports induced (m)TBI and PCS (post-concussion syndrome). He noticed that most of the existing programs are based on “acceptance and learning to deal with”, instead of actual working on recovery. Based on the neuroplasticity and neurogenesis of the human brain in combination of previously acquired empirical experiences in the neuro-optometric field, he developed a unique recovery program for these patients. Since then he sees and helping lots of patients dealing with PCS in the Netherlands and without, giving them more quality of live. He is a highly recommended speaker and expert in the neuro-optometry and sportsvision field, he educates colleagues and gives advice in how to set up practices.
