London 2012 – First impressions

Posted on 22nd July 2012

Well if this is the Olympic eye clinic at 40% capacity then I’m very afraid!

Word has obviously spread around the early arrivers and the reception that the optometrists are sharing with the dentists is permanently packed. Few people with real problems at the moment as athletes and coaches taking advantage of having the health of their eyes checked. Although many of the south Americans we saw yesterday had glasses, few had ever had the health if their eyes assessed.

I did feel like I had undone some really good work when I refitted some contact lenses for a weightlifter to be told that she wouldn’t dream if wearing them to compete. She couldn’t focus on her event unless everything was blurred!

Hoping to find some time today to sneak into the sunshine and see one of the teams welcoming ceremonies. The New Zealand teams haka yesterday was meant to be fantastic.

Photos to follow soon!

Question of the day: Which country has most competitors at London 2012. How many competitors for bonus points!
