Cut the indexes off your cards and just practice counting cards. Or white them out. Then you'll be able to recognize the cards more easily without having to see the index.

Default practicing sleights

Try practicing the same way you would a sleight - in front of a mirror.

They actually have some programs for your computer and things of that nature that help you train your eyes. you can set it to different speeds and things like that. Also flip one card over in the middle of a deck and ruffle threw them slowly and see if you can pick up what the card was as time goes on just ruffle faster and faster
