What role does depth perception play in sports and how can it be improved?

Depth perception is the visual ability to perceive the world in three dimensions and judge distance. This skill is fundamental to many sports actions, like hitting a ball accurately in tennis or judging the distance to the hoop in basketball. Specific exercises in sports vision training can improve depth perception, often by training both eyes to work together efficiently and consistently, which is critical for accurate distance judgment.
