Australian Cricketer Blames Eye Drops

Former Australian cricketer and Pakistan coach, Geoff Lawson, who also happens to be an optometrist, was bemused by claims by Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif, that eye drops caused him to test positive to a banned drug. Speaking over the telephone to a journalist for a Pakistan newspaper, Lawson is reported to have laughed at the claim saying: “It is news to me. The eye drops were not prescribed by me. I don’t know if he had used these drops under any doctor’s advice during IPL matches or by any National Cricket Academy (NCA) physio or medical person. During my time with the team, I was only concentrating on coaching and not on the medical side”.

Asif told the IPL drugs tribunal that the presence of nandrolone in his dope tests was the result of using the eye drops Keratyl – which contains the banned substance – to treat an inflamed eye.
