We are excited to welcome Dr. Mark Hill to our office! Dr. Hill is a Northern Utah native. Prior to attending Weber State University, Dr. Hill served an LDS mission to Maracaibo Venezuela. Dr. Hill earned his bachelor’s degree in Microbiology with minors in Zoology and Spanish. After his undergraduate training he attended the University of Utah School of medicine. His exposure to ophthalmology first started at the Moran Eye Center, where as a medical student he participated in investigational studies of intraocular lens implantation with Dr. Nick Mamalis. As a medical student Dr. Hill had the opportunity to serve the homeless community in Salt Lake City by participating in outreach clinics, community social initiatives and helping coordinate the 4th Street Homeless clinic ophthalmology outreach clinic.
He had the privilege of attending Ohio State University for his surgical training which allowed for him to receive excellent training and experience in the field of surgical and medical Ophthalmology. After residency, and wanting to be out West again, he joined a practice the in Sierra mountains region of Northern Nevada and practiced general Ophthalmology in the Reno, Carson City and Lake Tahoe region. He had the benefit of working in a very busy and high volume refractive cataract practice where he was able to better hone his skills as a surgeon and practitioner.
Feeling the desire to be closer to family and return home to the Wasatch Front, he has joined our team here at Insight Eye Specialists and he looks forward to serving the community where he grew up.
Dr. Hill’s professional interests of focus and development include premium cataract surgery, minimally invasive glaucoma surgery, LASIK/PRK and functional eyelid surgeries. His personal hobbies include snowboarding, hiking, camping, waterskiing and playing sports, especially baseball, with his three sons and his daughter.
Dr. Hill is elated to be back in his home town of Layton where he can serve the Northern Utah community.
