January has seen the Southern Cape Eye and Laser Centre hit the ground running with my passions in Ophthalmology..

We have done a lasik list, or refractive laser surgery with our state of the art,  flying spot Technolase excimer laser- what a wonderful way to start the year…there is nothing more fulfilling in my line of work than to see the smile on a person’s face when you take the shields off their eyes, and for the first time in their lives, they are able to see without their contact lenses or spectacles….

Cataract surgery is as gratifying with today’s modern technology and accuracy with regards lens selection for patients. Today’s visual demands are accommodated and tailored to the specific needs of the patient, especially with the advent of multifocal intra-ocular lenses.

Thirdly, the I-stent for open angle glaucoma is proving to be a phenomenal addition to the battle against the silent thief of sight. The results thus far are exceptional and I am looking forward to presenting my data at our up and coming Ophthalmology Society Meeting in Durban this year.

So whether it is the lasik surgery you are looking to treat yourself to, or having your cataracts removed with a number of refractive options available, or exploring the latest addition to micro invasive glaucoma surgery, visit our website or simply make an appointment to see Dr Joseph in either Knysna or Plett.

We look forward to realizing your visual potential
