Research Interests I am the principle investigator on two trials 1) comparing multifocal intraocular lenses with monovision following cataract surgery www.ioltrial.org 2) assessing the effect of topical steroids on adenoviral conjunctivitis. I am part of a multi centre study assessing the benefit of implanting the “Implantable miniature telescope” in eyes with advanced age related macular degeneration. Outcomes of cataract surgery
Mark Wilkins is an excellent surgeon. A very calm and gentle manner. I felt completely relaxed during cataract surgery and was not even aware of the application of eyelid clamps etc. He reassured me all through the procedure, asking me if I was comfortableAnd giving me indications here and there of how things were going and an idea of how long it would take. I had only slight discomfort after the anaesthetic wore off and thenA steady and successful recovery with much improved sight. A very satisfactory outcome all round.
It's difficult not to find it inianfutirg watching the spokesperson for ASH. She was obviously just repeating lines she had learnt, all because there's a vested interested for the treasury to keep making billions from smokers. They know NRT doesn't really work, and chances are, I'll bet that she's never even been a smoker. In comparison to Allen, who spoke with such informed passion, because he knows exactly what he's talking? about. The ONLY way.. A truly great man, r.i.p.
Excellent surgeon, felt totally confident in his care.
