Australian White Ball captain Aaron Finch revealed on Friday he suffered “blurred vision” at last year’s IPL in the United Arab Emirates and underwent eye surgery to correct the condition. blurred vision.
The operation has been a success so far, but the 34-year-old believes the real indicator will come when he plays under the lights, something Australia are set to do in their eight matches in the Caribbean.
“I noticed it during the IPL. One day it kind of changed… it was really blurry. By day it wasn’t as visible, at night it was more visible, especially in playing in Dubai where the lighting is not as good as what we have in Australia.
“I just noticed more that (my eyesight) was not very clear, and there were little halos around the lights and a bit of drag on the ball.”
“I tried the contact lenses and couldn’t get them right, they just didn’t sit in my eyes.”
He said he had the operation after returning from the New Zealand tour (in March).
“We thought this was the best time to be able to do it. It was a process of about three weeks and everything went really well.”
With much of Australia’s next cricket set to be played overnight, Finch said the real results of his operation will be confirmed.
“I see them pretty well (now). I only hit them inside on hard wickets. It’s all clear now, it looks perfect.
“I think the biggest test will come in the night games, that’s when I noticed the biggest difference in my eyesight.”
