On completion of specialist ophthalmology training, Dr Wei undertook one year of medical retina fellowship under the guidance of Professor Paul Mitchell at Westmead hospital. Here, he gained expertise in the treatment of retinal and macular disorders including age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vascular occlusions and other macular diseases.
