The present study was conducted to find out the effect of ocular health status on simple reaction time of male sportspersons. To conduct the study, 50 male sportspersons who took part in team and individual sports were selected as sample. Participation in university or national level tournament for sports like basketball, badminton, tennis, volleyball, hockey and cricket was the minimum criteria for selection of subjects. Simple reaction time was assessed by Nelson test whereas ocular health status of the subjects was determined by ophthalmic reports. Results indicate that simple reaction time with normal ocular health status was significantly lower as compared to the simple reaction time of subjects who need ophthalmic corrections due to ocular health problems. It was concluded that motor response for a visual stimuli is dependent upon ocular health status of a sportsperson.
