Whilst successful, these… Continue reading »

Some I trained alongside and others I have helped train during their time spent at Moorfields. I was invited to oppose the motion of a debate… Continue reading »

Using lasers in cataract surgery….the femtosecond laser

Mark was invited to present at a conference at Moorfields Eye Hospital a couple of weeks ago, devoted to the use of femtosecond laser in cataract surgery. This allowed those initial surgeons who’ve spearheaded the use of femtosecond laser in cataract surgery in the UK to share their experiences. The audience were primarily surgeons interested… Continue reading »

Femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery evening

Thank you to all the optmometrists and allied health professionals who came to Mark’s lecture at the Royal Society of Medicine.  The subject of the lecture was “Femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery – Is it worth the hype?”.  This generated a huge amount of interest as it’s a relatively recent technological advance in cataract surgery… Continue reading »
