INTERVIEW-Hawk-Eye’s vision extends to soccer and beyond
Hawk-Eye is now working with Dutch soccer authorities to take technology in soccer a step further with a full-blown trial of video refereeing. The concept has been used for several years in sports such as rugby union and American football; Hawk-Eye aims to reduce the reliance on TV broadcast output to come up with quicker and clearer answers. Its Officiating Replay System allows an extra referee to quickly monitor multiple TV feeds from the broadcaster before they are aired, to review contentious calls to, say, award a penalty kick or disallow a goal for offside. The system fulfils the wish of many an armchair fan by offering the video referee a parallel feed running two seconds behind the live feed, effectively allowing for an instant review of a contentious incident that was only half-glimpsed.

Seeing the sense in regular eye tests
It’s not just a vision check, it’s a health check of the eyes too.” According to the Eyecare Trust, 20 million of us do not get our eyes checked once every two years and one in 10 have never had an eye examination. A recent report commissioned by National Eye Health Week in conjunction with Vision Express found that almost two million people in the UK are living with sight loss and forecasters predict a further 500,000 could lose their sight by 2020. However, the Royal National Institute of Blind People estimates that as much as half of all sight loss is avoidable. The report also found that poor lifestyle habits and diet are putting vision and eye health at risk and a meagre uptake of regular sight tests is the biggest risk to the nation’s eye health. Aine said: “I don’t know why people put off getting their eyes checked. I think a lot of people, especially patients that don’t wear glasses, don’t see the point in a check because they don’t realise the importance of the health side of it.” Another employee who can help, at Vision Express’s Braehead store, is Julie Drummond, who recently took part in a distance learning scheme to qualify as a dispensing optician, which was funded by the company. Julie began working as a sales associate and became assistant manager before starting her diploma in September 2010.
