Where are those specs Jonny?

Some of you will have noticed that I no longer wear glasses.

I know, I know, they made me look intelligent and handsome - but for the sports I enjoy they were a bit of a handicap (golf when it rains and skiing, all the time). It was not purely cosmetic though, I had a cataract in my right eye which was getting seriously large and was affecting my work, and as I subsequently discovered, another one in my left eye too...

So, in October 2014 I decided to have lens replacement. After extensive research and several visits to different surgeons I selected Mr Mark Wevill from Optegra in Birmingham. Mark has vast experience in eye surgery (over 20,000 to date) and my operations were performed over a fortnight, the second op being done two weeks after the first.

I am pleased to say that all went really well and this week I was officially 'signed off' by Mark, with a small proviso that I will need a routine 2 minute procedure to clear any scarring/thickening of the lens sack using a laser sometime in the next 12 months.

Anyhoo...while I was there he asked me to remind him about what I do for a living and what I do for leisure (he knew already actually but wanted to open some dialogue) and I mentioned my golf and of course my skiing. Well, he has his own website which I am about to help him redesign later this year but in the interim he asked for a 'testimonial' which I was only too pleased to give. I now read without specs and can also do all my sports now without any extra help. Fantastic.

The said testimonial can be seen in the picture above and will be apprearing on Mark's website soon I understand.
