Shahzad and Bresnan eye bright future!

— 25 October 2010

Yorkshire and England’s Ajmal Shahzad and Tim Bresnan are both now enjoying the benefits of eyesight described as “better than 20/20” having undergone laser eye surgery with Accuvision.

Ajmal has waited nearly 2 years for the treatment. Simon Falk, YCCC team Optometrist, wanted to ensure there was no change in his prescription before surgery was undertaken: “It was important to get Ajmal’s treatment plan exactly right for his game. He has years of top class cricket ahead of him so it was vital to be patient in order to deliver the best possible outcome.”

As he arrived at the new Accuvision clinic in Wetherby Ajmal was particularly upbeat and very much looking forward to ditching his old glasses. “I have waited a long time for this treatment and know that everyone at the clinic will do a great job for me. Both Bres and Matt Prior have had laser eye treatment at Accuvision so I already know the potential benefits it can bring to my game and my life in general.”

“I got to the clinic at roughly 11am and Simon carried out a few final eye tests before surgery. Then I went upstairs to the operating suite and met the surgeon, Prashaant Jindaal. The actual laser treatment took only a matter of seconds for each eye and within 20 minutes the whole procedure was over. I was told to rest for a while in a quiet recovery room before I was given a final check-up and then discharged. I am very grateful to Simon, Prashaant and the whole Accuvision team for the care and attention they paid me during my consultations and treatment. I am now looking forward to both my vision and cricket improving day by day!”

Everyone at YCCC wishes Ajmal, Tim, Andrew Gale, Jonny Bairstow and Adam Lyth the best of luck in Australia. At least 2 of them will be able to see what they’re doing now!
