A Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, Mark Wevill has been restoring vision with cataract, lens exchange and laser eye surgery for over 20 years. He has postgraduate qualifications from the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and has been invited to speak at over 20 surgeon conferences.
Mark has extensive experience, and was specifically recommended to me by my optician for consultation regarding cataract surgery. I chose to use the Optegra facilities at the Aston University, and all visits and procedures were well organised and professional. I was surprised at the many options which were clearly explained to me by Mark, and am very pleased with the result of his suggested choice of lens. The very small risks were explained, and it was reassuring to know that the fee includes all visits that may be required in the future for whatever reason. He operated on my first eye last October, and the second one at the end of March. A check up consultation earlier this month confirmed an excellent result, and I have no hesitation in recommending Mark. I can now read the bottom line of the eye charts again without specs, see distant objects clearly, and colours are much brighter. Until the first eye was done, I hadn't realised that the white I saw had been a yellow tinge. Thank you Mark
Thank you for your kind words and for trusting me with your eyes!
Excellent service carried out by Mark and his team, this was not the first time that I have received eye treatment from Mark, also my wife has received cataract treatment from Mark in the past we where so impressed by the courtesy and welcome from all of the Optegra team, and how they made us feel relaxed and at ease the moment we entered the building. To anyone that has been referred to Optegra and Mark Wevill in particular you could not be in better hands, and there is nothing to be concerned about. Mark may I thank you, and wish you and the team all the very best. Kind Regards. Dennis A Smith
Thank you Dennis, and I'll pass on your thanks to the team.
I was a very anxious patient in urgent need of bilateral cataract surgery, but dreading the prospect. However my fears were allayed on meeting Mark Wevill. He took time to explain the procedure, give me all the information I needed regarding the options for surgery, and talk me through the proposed procedure in detail, so there were no surprises. I felt reassured before the surgery, and the procedures were exactly as described - quick, painless and hugely worthwhile. Mark is known to be a most skilled and eminent surgeon, a fact which is most reassuring in itself, but he is also very calm, patient and personable, which makes him very approachable, and he takes time to discuss matters and answer any questions. My surgery was most successful and the aftercare provided was excellent too, with minor follow-up procedures conducted quickly and easily- I can thoroughly recommend Mr Wevill as an excellent surgeon, and also a generous and kindly man who instils confidence and a feeling of security in his patients.
Thank you for your compliments & I'm pleased you felt so well cared for, Mark
From consultation day to operation day every thing went smoothly, the eye test was explained thoroughly. Mark made you feel very much at ease and explained every option available to me. Operation day I was made to feel very relaxed. Again it was all explained to me what would be happening. Facilities themselves were spotlessly clean, recovery and follow up appointments were great. Have not stopped smiling since having it done. Can't wait to have my right eye done, the world is colour full again.
I'm so pleased both eyes are done & everything is clearer now. Thanks for your great review.
My mom Eileen Boland had her second cateract operation last Thursday performed by Mark (who also did the 1st cateract for her last year). From the moment you meet this man you trust him, his manner and care given throughout is first class. The team who work with him are caring, re assuring and you know you are in the best hands from start to finish. Optegra (Birmingham) is exceptional and if anyone is considering surgery, this is the best place to come to
Thank you for your kind words!
