Hawk-eye’s Vision Extends To Soccer And Beyond

Eye Exercises and Vision Training

The work of Hawk-Eye, bought by Japanese electronics giant Sony in 2011, and rivals such as Germany’s GoalControl enables sports to get more of those decisions right, creating a business opportunity and fuelling a debate about whether review technology slows down the game too much. Paul Hawkins, who developed and gave his name to a system to complement television coverage of cricket in the 1990s and remains a director of the company, wants to end that debate. “Sport at the top level is about fine margins,” he said. “You can’t have something that only gets rid of the howler (blatant error) and doesn’t help with the close calls.” PREMIER LEAGUE DEBUT Hawk-Eye is now helping to resolve goal line disputes in English soccer after the Premier League, the world’s richest, became the first major domestic competition to bring in such technology. FIFA, world soccer’s governing body, has gone down a similar path after match officials failed to spot a goal by England’s Frank Lampard in his country’s defeat to Germany during the 2010 World Cup. FIFA used a GoalControl system during the Confederations Cup in Brazil in June, leaving the Germans well placed to win the contract for next year’s World Cup.

If your eyes are deep-set or if your skin is naturally pale or thin, you’ll also more likely see shadows beneath your eyes. Solution: You certainly can’t change your genetic makeup. You could, however, try makeup to help conceal your shadows. Try a brightening concealer in a shade as close to your normal skin tone as possible.

Effective on myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia and astigmatism. Posted by Rebecca Turner | Last updated: Oct 13, 2013 First created over 150 years ago, eye exercises are widely used around the world today for natural vision improvement. Also commonly referred to as vision training, eye exercises performed consistently over a period of time can cure: Myopia Nearsightedness Astigmatism An irregularly shaped cornea The Causes of Poor Vision The main cause of poor vision is muscle tension in and around the eye. This eye strain affects the ability to focus and relax completely, and over time the eyeball changes shape to compensate. The irregular shape of the eyeball causes light to focus too far in front of the retina (in nearsightedness) or too far behind (in farsightedness).
