Former Optegra MD joins OCL Vision

Paresh Patel

Private ophthalmic clinic OCL Vision has appointed Paresh Patel as CEO. Previously, he served as managing director at eye care specialist Optegra.

Commenting on his new role, Patel said: ‘The high cost of the most sophisticated surgical technology has put it out of reach for all but the best-funded, specialist eye clinics, and this is why our ATOS laser is one of only 20 in use in the world.

‘By investing in the very best equipment and the most skilled and experienced surgeons, our goal is to cement’s OCL Vision’s reputation as the UK’s leading provider of world-class centres of surgical excellence, where eye patients will enjoy treatment options and outcomes they won’t get anywhere else.

‘Over the next year we’ll be expanding our number of clinics and growing our team of highly specialised and skilled surgeons. We also want to make it easier for eye patients to get access to wraparound private care quickly and seamlessly, so we’ll be extending and deepening our relationships with front-line optometrists through a pioneering shared care model.’
