Mark specialises in the treatment of patients with retinal diseases, age related macular degeneration, cataract, glaucoma and general ophthalmology.

Mark qualified in University College Dublin. After completing higher surgical training in Dublin and Cork, he undertook a one-year fellowship in diabetic retinopathy at the Beetham Eye Institute in the Joslin Diabetes Center, a Harvard University hospital in Boston.  During this fellowship Mark participated in research on novel treatments to prevent vision loss in patients with diabetic eye disease.

Mark then completed a two-year vitreo-retinal surgery fellowship at the Duke University Eye Centre, one of the leading vitreo-retinal surgery fellowships in the United States.  Mark gained further experience in assessing and treating a wide range of eye conditions including age-related macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusions, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, and macular holes during this fellowship. Mark worked as a consultant eye surgeon in Duke University Eye Center after the fellowship before returning to Ireland in 2004.

Stay tuned for more updates as we draw closer to this incredible gathering of the latest scientific research and innovation, set to take place in June 2024!
