Dr Mark Wright performs over 400 small incision phaco-emulsification (modern small incision) cataract surgeries annually with over 99% as a day case. His cataract outcomes are as follows; over the past 4 years (1479 consecutive cases), 96% of my patients saw 6/12 or better postoperatively (comparative figure is 91% from the national cataract audit). His capsular rupture rate, the most commonly sited measurement of surgical dexterity over the past four years is 0.7% (1.9% national cataract audit).I co-lead the oculoplastic (eyelid and socket) service for Lothian.
Audit of surgical outcomes forms the backbone of revalidation, he was the inaugural audit secretary for the British Oculoplastic Surgical Society. Dr Wright has a keen interest in teaching and has, for the past 10 years, run the undergraduate ophthalmology course at Edinburgh University.
