A pre-reg optometrist from Specsavers Cheltenham has contributed to an article published in the Journal of Sports Sciences.
Twenty-three-year-old Tom Hayward from Cheltenham was one of five co-authors of the article about how changes in cricket helmet regulations affect the vision of batters.
‘I’m a keen cricketer so this was a great opportunity to combine my professional skills with something that I’m passionate about outside of work,’ said Tom. ‘It was originally a topic I chose for my dissertation at Anglia Ruskin University and for the article itself I carried out all the visual fields testing. It’s really rewarding to see lots of hard work be realised as a published article in a well-respected journal.’
