Dr. Donald S. Teig, OD, FAAO, received his BA in psychology from the University of Buffalo, and his BS and OD from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry. He has served as vision consultant to many professional sports teams in areas including baseball, football, and hockey, and is past president of the International Academy of Sports Vision, prior chairman of the Sports Vision Section of the American Optometric Association, and former director of the Institute for Sports Vision. Dr. Teig is also the founder and director of a national team of sports medicine experts known as "The A Team--High Performance Vision Associates."
Beginning over forty years ago, Dr. Teig pioneered work in sports vision and visual-motor performance training with major league baseball. Subsequently, Dr. Teig and his associates have worked with over fifteen major league baseball clubs, pro golf and tennis tours, several NBA basketball clubs, many Olympic teams, professional football and hockey teams, and dancers of the Joffrey Ballet.
Dr. Teig has written numerous articles on the relationship of vision to improved athletic performance. He has lectured throughout the world on this topic, and has developed much of the equipment and techniques being used in the field today. As a sports-vision specialist, Dr. Teig has appeared on several network television and radio programs, including featured segments of The Today Show, Dateline NBC, ESPN Sports Center, The View, and programs on HBO. He has also contributed to sports segments on New York's all-sports radio station, WFAN, earning him the nickname "Doctor Jock."
