    Mr Wevill came very well recommended for my mum's cataract surgery as being one of the elite. Macular degeneration had taken her other eye already, so even more stressful to trust in someone to perform the cataract operation on your only good eye. He explained everything to her with total honesty and put her mind at ease. He is very approachable and caring. My mum's vision has dramatically improved since the operation. Would highly recommend him.

    Mark was excellent at talking me through the options and then he conducted the procedure and then the aftercare equally as well. I have no hesitation in recommending Mark to anyone considering laser eye surgery.

    I highly recommend Mark for laser eye surgery. I was very keen to not have to wear my glasses or contact lenses anymore but also very nervous. I had a few consultations elsewhere but I didn’t leave feeling confident. Mark made me feel confident, comfortable and reassured right away in the initial consultation. He answered all my questions and listened to all my concerns. I was also able to choose the surgery I wanted (Lasek). Following surgery, I’m very happy and the aftercare and communication has also been great. Also, Korin, Mark’s secretary, was always very helpful. Thank you.

    Dr Wevill is a brilliant Doctor, his after care service is very good as he calls you after the surgery on the day. He reassures you and ensures that you are greatly cared for and puts your mind at ease if there are any problems or concerns post surgery. Highly recommend Dr Wevill for his services.
