In 1990, Dr. Huggett developed the Low Vision Clinic at James Haley VA Medical Center Outpatient Clinic, New Port Richey, Florida. He was the Team Eye Physician for the MLB Toronto Blue Jays in 1994 serving the needs of the team and providing sports vision therapy.

He developed cognitive and vision exercises for the improvement of visual-motor integration and vision related learning and reading problems. These exercises are used today by patients, students and athletes both professional and amateur.
