Olympic gold medallist to visit Norwich this week

Former Olympic gold medal winning triple jumper Jonathan Edwards will be in Norwich on Thursday.

The Great Britain athletics legend is opening the new Ultralase vision correction clinic - a company he has been a patient of and is brand ambassador for - at Merchants Court, off St Georges Street.

The clinic will offer free, no obligation consultations with a specialist optometrist, will assess patients' suitability for vision correction, including laser eye surgery, intra-ocular lenses and cataract treatment, as well as treatments to address the age-related need for reading glasses.

Mr Edwards will join Norwich South MP Simon Wright in officially opening the clinic at 11.30m on Thursday.

Tony Veverka, chief executive for Ultralase, said: 'The opening of our second consulting room and the prospect of expanding our clinic network to 31 is a very exciting for the entire team at Ultralase.
