At the end, the subjects were post-test.Results: The results mixed ANOVA showed that the experimental group's the horizontal and vertical saccades and NFN improved with sports vision trainings in all three variables (P≤0.0005). independent t-test showed a significant difference between the two groups in the horizontal and vertical saccades and NFN tests.Conclusion: sports vision trainings significantly improves eye movements in children with ADHD.
