New York Yankees centerfielder Curtis Granderson reportedly is going to get his eyes checked after he struck out 16 times during 30 at-bats during the playoffs, not to mention the 195 whiffs he had during the regular season.

A source told the New York Daily News that the Yankees plan to send Granderson to an ophthalmologist to determine if poor eyesight is the cause of his batting problems.

The Yankees conduct standard physicals — including eye tests — on all of their players each spring.

But the source said the 31-year-old Granderson did not have his eyes checked again during the 2012 season.

Granderson has had eye problems before.

In February of 2010, Granderson was diagnosed with 20/30 vision shortly after joining the Yankees. So, he started wearing contact lenses for the first time.

“They said, ‘Your vision is 20/30, so let’s see if we can improve it,’’ Granderson said back then.

In 2010, Granderson struck out 116 times while wearing contact lenses. In 2011, he struck out 169 times. Then his strikeouts soared to 195 this year.

His batting average during the 2012 season was .232. He had 43 home runs and 106 RBIs. He’s a three-time MLB All-Star.

He made $10 million during the season.
