I remember a few months ago postulating that Gilles' eyesight was failing and that may have been the cause of his fatal accident at Zolder (and many of his accidents). It seems I was correct about the eyesight issue, at least according to Peter Windsor. This makes my additional theory about Jacques' eyesight failing and possibly contributing to his deteriorating driving skills of late a bit more plausible.

Yes, I know, I'm blowing my own horn here, but what the hell....

I was recalling that thread yesterday. I even went to look for the posts!

Wan't laser eye correction available that time? If it was, Gilles could have done what Tiger Woods & co did & perhaps could have saved his life & have had a more glorious career.

You may be true about Gilles, but JV could have had an operation or somthing to improve his ever sight, I remember him wearing a PINK :P spex!

LabradoRacer, My dad is an optician, and during free time I help him out, So I do get some information regarding Laser treatment. That treatment cannot be done for everyone with poor eye sight. I heard. Infact, its a very risky treatment, I am sure these days things are better, but back then it could have been done only on lab pigs with confidence!

Indeed, laser is only useful for certain eyesight conditions. I tried to find what exactly affected Gilles eyesight but I couldn't find any details on his condition nor Jacques'.

Does anybody have any info?

Well,Tiger Woods was the first golfer to use laser treatment to get his eyes twice as good as normal. I'm not kidding. His eyesight is twice as good as a normal person's. Of course ,Vijay Singh & the others followed suit.
