Cameron Optometry at the Commonwealth Games

Cameron Optometry at the Commonwealth Games

Posted on 03rd December 2013

The success of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games was obvious on the sports field but extended behind the scenes too.

Having the privilege to be in the athletes village myself I was overwhelmed by how busy the eye clinic was. The official figures recently published confirmed that over the 30 days of the games, the eye clinic saw and treated 1406 patients from 154 countries. One of the busiest specialities in the polyclinic.

Safe in the knowledge though that there are only 53 countries in the Commonwealth, and that i might actually get to see some sport this time, i applied to volunteer for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth games. After the usual interview process i am delighted to have been chosen and to be able to do my bit to make these games as big a success as London.
