A thoroughly professional and friendly experience. Staff are fantastic and the process is super smooth. Having great eyesight again is life changing. Dr Joseph has a fantastic bedside manner and is undoubtedly a true expert in his field.
Great service from start to finish! Consultation with Dr Dylan Joseph was on point, professional and the solutions discussed was made easy to understand. Great team work received by the team! Efficiency from start to finish with the team always professional but kind and warm. I can recommend Dr Joseph and his team as a first class specialist team
A dream come true
What a fantastic experience! Dr Dylan and his staff are highly professional and friendly. Mariska who mans the front and guests’ liaisons does a great job and seems to know just how to keep everyone happy and content.
For how intricate this procedure is they make it look easy and stress free. Taking very little time and recovery extremely quick with no pain involved. Result of the procedure also exceeded my expectation. I should’ve done this much sooner than I did. All and all I would rate this 10 out of 10
Big thanks to the whole team!
Ps. Ali & Benji saying thanks for sharing your chocolate with them
I ask myself over and over why I left it for so long! It’s nothing short of a miracle. I can see so clearly and I don’t need to wear glasses. The level of service and attention from every single member of The Vision for Life Team was phenomenal.
Everything was above par. Dr Joseph is such a gentle man and the hospital was first class. Would highly recommend Dr Joseph for his skill and expertise.
The team at the Vision for Life Clinic including Dr McClunan and his team in Cape Town were exceptional. I was contacted regularly leading up to the surgery and received a call from Dr Mc Clunan the day before my appointment. The knowledgeable Drs, state of the art facility in Knysna and friendly demeanour of the staff alleviated all concerns I may have had. It’s near impossible to put into words what this surgery has given me, I can’t remember the last time I was able to see through only MY EYES. I regret not having it done sooner. Thank you to Dr Joseph for restoring my confidence!
Excellent experience all round. Professional with state of the art technology and equipment, friendly and best of all – NO MORE GLASSES! You can repair your eye sight and it IS affordable!

What a brilliant, kind and gentle man Dr Joseph is! His entire team are highly professional and my cataracts are gone and my really bad eyesight restored to perfection, with very little discomfort! I never dreamed this possible and can highly recommend Dr Joseph to anyone! 100% best patent care and after care I have ever experienced and the great wine gift and chocolates after surgery was an unexpected lovely gesture! Best regards and thanks,
Thank you Dr Joseph and team for the greatest gift : my sight. Very professional team and almost no downtime. Shoutout to Mariska for organising all the admin.
Had eye surgery, the whole process from start to finish was short and painless. Surgery at Advanced Life was a great experience. Efficient, well trained friendly nurses and staff. I can highly recommend Dr Dylan Joseph and his team.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank yourself and your team, It has been a very very long process to date, as I was not a normal case, when it came to my eyes.
Dr. D Joseph and his team, were so accommodating and helpful in every way possible, explaining the medical terms until i understood it, always taking my phone calls, making a plan to fit me in for appointment, and when going into Theater the team made me feel relaxed and comfortable. It’s really hard in this day and age to get the service I received. It was a very stressful time, but it was handle in a very professional, caring pleasant manner.
I can only say, that i highly recommend Dr Joseph and his team.
Seamless procedure and incredible facilities and staff.
I was very impressed with the professional, caring, and wonderful first class treatment, that I experienced with Dr Joseph and his team. We are so lucky to have such expertise here in Knysna. Absolutely world class.
Dr Joseph replaced both lenses in my eyes during May 2023 with excellent results. The services of Dr Joseph and his staff were professional, on time, clear with excellent follow up. I had trifocal replacements, meaning excellent sight for short, medium and long distances. I do not need glasses anymore and my quality of life improved. Knysna is privileged to have an eye clinic of this international standard and I strongly recommend it for people who are diagnosed as being suitable candidates.
Absolutely life-changing to be able to see properly again! Dr Joseph and his team is extremely professional and the lens replacement procedure is painless and nothing to be worried about. Would definitely recommend to visit Dr Joseph and “own your vision” rather than keep on changing glasses every couple of years while you lose your vision!
I underwent implantable contact lens (ICL) surgery with Dr Joseph and his team in October 2022. After many years of wearing specs and struggling with the discomfort of my contact lenses, due to my astigmatisms. I contacted Dr Joseph to see what options I had in terms of correcting my vision. After Dr Joseph’s assessment, he explained everything to me in a way that was easy to understand and was kind enough to record his feedback and email it to me. Dr Joseph explained that although I wasn’t a candidate for laser (due to the severity of my loss and astigmatisms) I was a good candidate for ICLs. This procedure allows an implantable contact lens to be placed in front of your natural lens and behind your iris. I was 24 years old with a big decision to make but Dr Joseph and his team were very understanding and helpful. Dr Joseph answered all my questions and informed me of the risks and costs involved. He also allowed me to make my decision in my own time. The procedure itself was quick and painless and I was back at work in less than a week. Dr Joseph and his wonderful team guided me through the entire process and I am extremely happy with the outcome of the procedure. I can now wake up in the morning with 20/20 vision.
Thank you very much, Dr Joseph and team for all you have done for me!
I recently had the privilege of undergoing eye surgery performed by Dr. Dylan Joseph, and I cannot express enough how truly exceptional my experience was. From the initial consultation to the post-operative care, Dr. Joseph demonstrated unparalleled expertise, professionalism, and compassion. His commitment to providing outstanding ophthalmic care left an indelible impression on me, and I am grateful for the renewed clarity of my vision. From the moment I stepped into Dr. Dylan Joseph’s office, the atmosphere exuded warmth and comfort. The staff members were incredibly friendly, attentive, and proficient in their roles, ensuring a seamless journey throughout my entire surgical process. Their dedication to patient care was evident in every interaction, and they promptly addressed any concerns or questions I had, putting me at ease from the outset. Following the surgery, Dr. Dylan Joseph’s commitment to my recovery and overall well-being shone through. He provided detailed post-operative instructions and was readily available to address any concerns during the crucial healing period. His attentiveness and genuine care extended far beyond the operating room, and I felt supported every step of the way
I will forever be thankful to God and the expert hands of Dr Dylan Joseph and Dr Daemon McClunan for the success of the procedure and for giving me back the gift and wonder of sight. The whole process went smoothly and I was met with friendliness, efficiency, professionalism and phenomenal skills! I can experience life in ALL its glory with ALL my senses. Struggling with your eyesight? Whether you are nearsighted or farsighted – these talented gentlemen will be able to assist you!
It is a dream come true, after most of my childhood and adult life, to be able to wake up with crystal clear vision! I have done many things I struggled with before and things I love to do are even more enjoyable! It’s been one of the biggest gifts I’ve given myself and it was 100% worth it!
Thanks doc…….. all good this end, although quite nervous this was a very good experience with all the staff being very professional, helpful and reassuring…
Rolien VAN GREUNING
I would highly recommend Dr Joseph. Both he and his team are professional, extremely knowledgeable and courteous. I knew I was receiving excellent care at all times.
Wendy Van Bergen
Dr Dylan Joseph and his entire team was fantastic, walking me through the process the entire way. I had the blended vision treatment which has worked out very well for me. After an initial adjustment period I am now able to see seamlessly from distant to reading without glasses. I would highly recommend Dr Joseph.
This was the best decision of my life. I didn’t realize how much better life would be with 20/20 vision and not having to rely on wearing glasses or contact lenses. Dylan and his amazing team made me feel at ease and were extremely friendly and helpful throughout the entire process. You can see that this isn’t just their job, but rather their passion. HUGELY RECOMMEND USING THEIR TEAM.
I had the cataracts in both eyes removed and replacement lenses fitted. Stents fitted in both eyes to help with the drainage. I was amazed with the technology used. The team at Dr Dylan Joseph’s surgery are very professional and efficient. I highly recommend Dr Dylan Joseph and his supporting team.
So happy with the decision of getting Lasik surgery (both eyes -2.5) at Dr Joseph’s! Very satisfied with the results – made life much easier. I would very much recommend doing the surgery w Dr Joseph & team: the whole team is super warm & friendly and the center is very modern & clean. I’ve done the surgery whilst I was visiting Knysna for only +- 2 weeks. I’m very thankful for the team being helpful and responsive to questions by mail/phone already before I was in Knysna and had done a first screening with them. Furthermore they were flexible with planning the visits, surgery etc taking into account my short stay. I chose to do the surgery at Dr Dylan (instead of Europe) because I heard great things about the doctor, lower waiting time & costs, flexibility, more modern equipment etc. Dylan put me in contact with a doctor in Belgium to do follow-ups in the future. So the process of doing cross border eye surgery went very smooth thanks to the team I would opt for it again! Thank you!!
Julie De Neys
Went for my second checkup today and my vision is now 20% better than the average human! Dr Joseph is the best: the surgery was quick and simple, his bedside manner is lovely; he and all the support staff are friendly, kind, supportive and accommodating. I would recommend LASIK with Dr Joseph to anyone who asked. Truly a great experience and after 15 years of struggling with glasses and contacts I can see perfectly!
I had cataract surgery and are very happy with the outcome. Before the surgery I battled to read fine print with my reading glasses. After both eyes have been done I can read fine print and do not need any glasses. Thank you Dr Joseph you are the bests.
Rene Van zyl
What an AMAZING , painless experience! After the hassle of constantly switching near and far glasses all day and forever losing and searching for them, I am now living my best life with NO glasses! Every eye examination/screen/test was informative and helpful. Dr Joseph-explained the procedure and answered all my questions using a big TV screen with pictures of my eyes until I had a full understanding of the procedure. His assistants and secretary and all lovely to speak to or ask questions. I received a video plus the audio of the discussion at the appointment, which was also amazingly helpful. At the hospital I was treated as if I was at a spar. Due to the sedation I was relaxed and had no discomfort or pain during the procedure. The whole procedure plus the post op care was just beyond expectation! I am so happy with the result! If any one is in doubt of exploring their eye options with Dr Josep, don’t be, it’s the best thing I ever did for myself. Plus medical aid and gap cover paid for it all. Thank you so much to Dr Joseph and all his staff.
Best you’ll ever get, 150% professional!!! Referred 4 people to Dr Dylan in the last year, all very happy with the results
Gentle, understanding and superb treatment all the way through. Excellent results – so excited about my returned vision. Thank you all that work with Dylan.
From Maryke Ball – Amazing experience – a successful procedure with an unexpected bonus of not having to use reading glasses. Dr. Joseph and his entire team are professional, warm, and thorough. Thank you.
Professional service and friendly staff. My experience was made much easier by the whole team, Dr Joseph is definitely the best in his field.
Medical procedures are not normally a pleasant experience but it was not the case with Dr. Dylan Joseph and his amazing staff. My cataract removal was a walk in the park. I can only speak highly of Dr. Joseph and wish to thank him for my excellent vision.
After battling with eye issues for quite a while, I took the step of going for cataract removal and lens implants in both eyes. I was nervous at first, but thanks to the highly professional and friendly staff involved, it turned out to be such a positive experience! No pain at any stage. At worst, some scratchiness occurred at times just after the procedure was done, but this was quickly addressed by using lubricating eye drops. My vision improved almost immediately and I cannot believe what a difference it makes to my quality of life. I can really recommend dr Dylan Joseph
Helmien van den Berg
I had cataracts in both eyes removed and had replacement lenses fitted to provide blended vision.
The team at Dr. Joseph’s surgery is absolutely world-class. They are friendly, efficient, and caring. All the arrangements were explained to me and the whole process was seamless from the first appointment to the post-op consultations. Dr Joseph is a consummate professional with a kind and supportive approach.
I must also compliment the care staff at Advanced Health..they are a shining example of kind and efficient health care.
My new lenses have been in place for 6 and 1 day(s) respectively and the result is already dramatic. I am already spectacle free and I’ve never realized how brown-tinged my vision had become and the new lenses have shown me the world as others see it. I’m sorry I didn’t have these procedures done a few years ago but am looking at the future with clear vision. I can’t recommend Dr Joseph and his support team highly enough.
After so many years of wearing glasses it is such a joy to be able to read fine print and enjoy clear distance vision without those dreaded glasses. Exactly what I requested of Dr Joseph and my expectations have been completely fulfilled. The standard of high tech involved is quite amazing and unexpected in a small coastal town in South Africa
My wife and I recently had cataract operations on both eyes by Dr Dylan Joseph. We can vouch for their advanced expertise and professionalism. I only realize now what I’ve been missing by not having this done years ago.
All I can say is that I find it difficult to put into words the difference Dr Dylan Joseph and his team at Vision for Life have made to my sight and as a result my life. My choice of lens has enabled me to see in fine detail at a distance and I have no issue with having to use readers.
But on top of all this, Dr Joseph, all his staff from the testing area to the reception area, showed professionalism, interest, care, understanding and friendliness, which I have not seen paralleled in the medical field. For that matter, in any field.
I must also heap praise on all the staff in the hospital where the procedures took place. The reception area, nurses, sisters and theatre staff were as amazing as the staff in the Vision for Life Clinic. Again, though I have not had more than a couple of hospitalization’s in my life, this experience was top, top class.
A huge thank you and a big shout out to all concerned.
It is amazing how nervous I was, but there is no reason as the staff was fantastic, everything ran so smoothly, I can recommend that seeing perfectly will change any persons life, It has sure changed mine, thank you.
From the moment I arrived at Dr Josephs’s eye hospital, I was very impressed. With the professional friendly staff and the incredible state of the art equipment you instantly feel at ease. Every part of the tests and subsequent operation was thoroughly explained. Thank you all so very much. Best Wishes
After 20 years I am finally free from prescription glasses. How blessed are we to have such an exceptional Eye Specialist and Opthalmologist in our town. Dr Jospeh and his team were attentive and professional from the start. Deciding on ICL, I was extremely anxious, but was reassured constantly by Dr Joseph. The surgery was life changing.
I could not be happier with my experience and result! I am now 2 months post-lasik and so happy with the results. I am so glad that I made the decision in my twenties to have lasik done. I highly recommend Dr Joseph and his team. They were so friendly and professional from the get-go and the procedure itself was way easier and stress-free than you’d think. Recovery was also very quick and I was back to normal everyday activities within a couple of days
Over the past few weeks I have undergone both the initially screening for eye surgery and then the actual Lasik surgery for blended vision. In all my years of using the services of various medical practitioners, this was by far the most professional and friendly service I have ever received. I would highly recommend Dr Dylan Joseph and his team.
What an amazing experience! Professional and personal treatment, a tremendous amount of information shared as to the procedure and how the treatment is carried out. Nothing to worry about and totally pain free. To walk in to Dr Joseph’s rooms visually handicapped and out within two weeks with perfect vision!! a new lease in life. After collecting up plus minus R80 000,00 worth of old redundant spectacles, why on earth did I not do this twenty years ago!. Thank you Dr Joseph and team for this life changing experience.
Chris Le Roux
Had the most amazing experience Thank you soo much for changing my life. Dr Joseph, Mariska and all the staff at the hospital.
Was so looked after and I now have fantastic vision.
The difference in my quality in life is amazing, the whole experience and professionalism was fantastic, the result from the procedure was mind blowing not having to wear spectacles at all is life changing.
I have been wearing spectacles for about 40 years and then at an eye test appointment it was discovered that cataracts were forming.
A visit to Dr Dylan Joseph confirmed that there were cataracts and the operation was booked to remove the cataracts. The staff from the reception, Mariska Enslin, to the highly quailed ladies (both Doctors) who carried out the eye tests to Dylan himself were friendly and explained everything and answered all questions to ensure that I felt confident going into the operation. Both my eyes were operated on a week apart and successfully so, to the extent that after 40 years I am not longer wearing glasses and can see and read clearly. I would recommend Dr Dylan Joseph to all my friends should they find themselves in need of eye surgery. Thank you to Dylan anD all the people in the practice.
Wow what a professional service. The staff and Dr Dylan is amazing. I did laser on both my eyes and the difference before and after in unexplainable. I will advise anyone to go to them, you don’t even have to think twice. Thanks doc and to all your staff again you all rock
Great service and after care!! Really happy! Wonderful staff!
Ilze Du Plessis
I am currently 70 years old and have been and active and physical person. I have definitely not enjoyed the inevitable toll that the ageing process has taken on my physical attributes and the most frustrating of these has been my deteriorating vision.
Today , 9 days after having corrective surgery and both lenses replaced on the same day, I can see clearly again and am no longer reliant on glasses. I am delighted and excited to have my vision back as this is going to vastly improve the quality of my life in so many ways.
Dr. Joseph and his team are highly professional and seem to have thought of everything to make this process not only successful but also smooth, efficient and stress free.
I should have done this ages ago
Roy van Rensburg
I am just amazed… Instant and complete change in my quality of life. Still can’t believe it was this painless and effortless to have this massive improvement. I highly recommend Dr Dylan Joseph’s service. I am extremely grateful and happy!
Doctor Josephs expertise changed my life. By lasering just my one eye, he literally gave me my focus back. The procedure was quick and easy. I didn’t feel a thing. Only regret is that I didn’t do this ten years ago.
Dr Dylan is an immensely compassionate person and diligent professional. I highly recommend his services to anyone. Although his practice is out in Knysna, it is well worth the trip. Mariska, the Patient liaison, also went out of her way to check-in after the procedure and to make sure we are comfortable. 5-star!
Words can’t even explain how thankful and grateful for Dr Dylan Joseph and his team for changing my life. After 25 years of wearing glasses/contacts, I came to him thinking I’ll go for LASIK surgery and it turned out the odds were more against me – having an underdeveloped right eye, severe stigmatism, -8 short sightedness and cataracts. Dr Dylan Joseph was incredibly professional and found a solution for me to be completely spectacle free. He performed a cataracts with lens implant surgery. From the first consultation to post surgery, him and the team constantly kept me informed on the process and set my expectations for every step of the journey. It was a very comforting and an amazing experience. I felt so safe in the hands of Dr. Dylan Joseph and I’m now overwhelmed with the results. I would highly recommend Dr Dylan Joseph and his team in a heart beat.
I wouldn’t go to another clinic! Thank you very much for changing my life. Perfect service, perfect stuff. Can’t wait to see you again!
Dr Dylan Joseph is not only amazing but he totally changed my life yesterday! After being born squint and having only 10% vision in my left eye, wearing glasses since I was 2 and contact lenses since I was 12…I am finally free of both and my eyes are all fixed up! Totally worth the 6 hour drive from CPT..the whole team including the staff are absolutely amazing and caring and I had no doubt that I was in the right hands from the get go..so thank you Dr Dylan Joseph and thank you to his amazing team for everything!
Never in my life I thought it would be possible for me to see better then I ever could, but Dr. Joseph made it possible. I would advise each and every one, young and old to consider this operation. It is life changing! Not only Dr. Joseph but every staff member made you feel at home and wish I could rate this experience more than 5 stars. Thank you again for giving me the opportunity to live my life at it’s fullest.
I have had an incredible experience with Dr Joseph and his team; from thier warmth, personal interest in thier clients, professionalism, availability, care to detail and even going as far as sharing as much information as they can to ease questions and concerns thier clients may have for FREE!
In my profession, I depend on my sight to make a living. So, to have gone from -3.75 sight or 20/20 vision behind glasses, to a near 20/20 vision free from a plastic and metal confinement, I have not only been able to do my job unaided, but also enjoy the freedoms in sport, travel and adventure without any hesitation.
I have been without glasses now for almost 6 months and I struggle to remember a life with them. I do suffer a bit from dry eyes, but with Dr Joseph’s careful guidance, I have been able to manage this quite comfortably.
I have always seen myself in my mind’s eye as someone without specs, and here I am today – surfing, swimming, snorkelling, sailing etc. Doing exactly that… No more hesitation, everything with eyes WIDE open.
Here is to another 4.5years (and more) with Dr Joseph and his team as we walk this joyful journey together!
The service at the Clinic was outstanding from the outset from initial consultation, scheduling etc right through to post op checks. I particularly liked that Dr Joseph recorded my consultation and sent it through to me which allowed me to listen to it again in my own time, the decision to opt for lens replacement in both eyes was my choice to stop my dependency on wearing glasses. The surgery went smoothly and within hours I was reading without the need for glasses, whoop whoop!!
Thank you Dr Joseph and your entire amazing team, simply THE BEST.
I cannot express how grateful I am for this life changing experience. It wasn’t without trepidation and anxiousness that I decided to have LASIK eye surgery, but I honestly cannot be happier with the result. Dr Joseph and is staff are incredible, knowledgeable and make you feel comfortable and at ease. I cannot recommend this procedure and Dr Dylan Joseph enough, if you have any doubts, don’t. I wish I had done this 10 years ago! Thank you!!!!!!
Visionary Extraordinaire! Dr Dylan Joseph…
From the moment you walk into the ultra-modern facility in Knysna you know you are in good hands, getting greeted by the super friendly Mariska (Multi-tasker galore on-top-of-things personality), offering a welcome beverage to settle you down. Now it was time for my “pre-screening” to see if I’m a candidate for vision correction. Greeted by another friendly face, Megan is the person that does all the test on those “space age” top of the rage machines … like it’s a pre-screening to go to Mars, quick and efficient.
The moment you meet Dr Dylan Joseph, you know you are in the company of a Word Class surgeon. We are lucky to have such a special surgeon at our disposal. He’s charismatic personality and unrivalled knowledge makes you feel at ease within a second, you know you at the right place. He could even have his own tv show like Dr Oz. His understanding across all levels of treatments is extraordinary, with the latest equipment at his disposal…. “space age”…
I have been severely short-sighted since I can remember but so wary of having my eyes tampered with! I finally mustered up the courage to visit Dr Joseph and his team seeing as the clinic was on my doorstep. I was blown away by their efficiency and professionalism. The journey was seamless from beginning to end and after LASIK surgery on both eyes simultaneously my life has changed! I am three weeks into becoming inured with my blended vision and finally see the world the way it really is! I don’t have to use spectacles for anything anymore and have experienced no side effects. I cannot thank Dr Joseph enough and I just wish I had been brave enough to have the quick and pain-free procedure decades ago …!
Professional and friendly service from Dr Joseph and his entire team. Dr Joseph’s analysis and advice was spot on and the results of my lens replacements are unbelievable! No more mislaid and trampled on spectacles for me….!
Outstanding experience from start to finish. I can highly recommend Dr Joseph and his team. They are all very professional and caring.
Dylan and team were exceptional from the first assessment, through the corrective process and post op assessment. My eyesight is much improved in all facets of life, most notably when reading, driving and golfing. The surgery was quick and a little uncomfortable for about 24 hours – I would recommend sleeping for a couple of hours as soon as you get home. I’m now 3 months into my new vision and am most impressed with the outcome.
A life-changing experience. For the first time in more than 30 years, I am spectacle free and enjoying every moment.
The PRK laser treatment I received here was fantastic. For the first time in my life of 64 years I now don’t need glasses 95% of the time. It is the first treatment I have had that has successfully fixed my astigmatism.
The level of professionalism, patient care, going the extra mile and standard of excellence that Dr. Dylan Joseph and his incredible team show is truly world class. I highly recommend you to do your LASIK Eye Surgery with Dr. Dylan Joseph.
THANK YOU Dylan and your fabulous and professional team for all your caring and patience. I am so loving my ‘new eyes’ and still can’t believe that I can see properly when I wake up in the morning ! Dylan you are a legend.
Thank you Dr Dylan A Joseph and team for a wonderful experience. I was thinking about LASIK for more than 10 years and was always too scared to do it. The professional service at Dr Dylan’s practice made this procedure an experience worth remembering.
I had cataract removal and lens replacement surgery done by Dr Dylan Joseph. From the first consultation to the last post-op visit was professional and friendly. Surgery went without any discomfort. Not having to wear spectacles anymore is fantastic! Thank you Dr Joseph and your amazing team.
Alta Van der Schyff
AMAZING!!!! Dr Joseph is in my opinion the best laser eye surgeon in South Africa! What an amazing doctor with such a caring bedside manner! I cannot recommend him highly enough if you need laser eye surgery.
Lourens van Zyl
It is currently six weeks after my Lasik eye surgery, and everyday I am still surprised by how much it has changed my life. It was extremely comforting to go in for a consultation and have a huge range of tests done, it let me know from the get go that they wouldn’t recommend a surgery that could harm me in any way and that they would recommend what was best for my eyes. The actual surgery was very quick taking at most 20 minutes. My eyes were very itchy for 24 hours and a little bit itchy for a week or two, but the eye drops they gave me helped with that, and I could see and function normally the morning after the surgery. I went from not being able to see my hand in front of my face, to better than 20/20 vision in 24 hours. If you are considering getting eye surgery I would 100% recommend going to Dr Joseph, at the very least go in for a consultation and have the tests done to see what your options are.
After wearing glasses and contact lenses for about 10 years, I began looking into eye surgery to correct my myopia. Dr Joseph performed Phakic Lens Implant Surgery on my right eye, and the results were a huge success. I no longer need to wear glasses and I’m so happy with my new vision! Dr Joseph and his wonderful team were extremely helpful and professional, making it a great experience from start to finish. Thank you so much Dr Dylan & Team, I am forever grateful!
Having undergone previous successful laser refractive surgery around 20 years ago, unfortunately my vision deteriorated rapidly in the past 3 years or so. I had been told that because of the prior laser surgery, it would not be possible to either have or achieve a good result with lens replacement surgery. Dr Joseph advised that this was not correct, (in my case at least). Two months ago he performed surgery on both eyes, my left astigmatic left eye requiring something called a Toric intraocular lens implant to correct the vision and astigmatism, while the right eye received a more standard multifocal intraocular lens. The process and potential outcomes were explained in detail, and supplemented with helpful videos. Since the day-surgery procedures, the only discomfort has been occasional dry eyes requiring eye drops, but this has slowly faded to now being practically negligible. I now have 20/20 multifocal eyesight, meaning that I do not require any glasses at all, and could not have hoped for a better outcome. Thank you to a very talented eye specialist and his professional team in Knysna.
Excellent ophthalmic practice . Highly recommended
Dr. Dylan Joseph and his team is friendly, informative and hugely professional. I had the PRK procedure on my right eye to correct my long distance vision. Before my surgery I struggled with contact lenses and had to use reading glasses. I will absolutely recommend Dr. Dylan Joseph to anyone with vision issues. I am extremely happy with my results! Exceptional service, thank you!
My Lasik experience with Dr Joseph and his team has been amazing from the time I entered the door to the moment I walked out post opp. Truly professional staff kept me at ease at all times. I constantly find myself staring into the distance at things I could never see before, even with my specs. Having worn specs from the age of 16 and only being able to see out of my right eye I was hesitant to operate on my only good eye, but he and his team reassured me in a way I could understand which put my mind at ease. He spoke to me all through the procedure, explained what he was doing when he was doing it and what was going on at all times. I found it very calming and would recommend him and his practice to anyone and everyone. I am truly grateful to him and his team for restoring my vision to better than what it was even with my specs. It is absolute freedom. 100 stars if I could!!!
I had a great experience overall at Dr Dylan Joseph’s rooms. From Start to finish Dr Joseph and his team were extremely helpful and supportive and professional in my journey to visual freedom. All my questions were answered efficiently and personally, making my decision easier to do the procedure and putting my nerves at ease when it came to following through! We only have one set of eyes, so we need to treat them with care, which is exactly what Dr Joseph did! Thanks again to Dr Joseph and team for making my dream come true.
Simply put: life changing. After 15 years of being unable to do anything without my glasses, Dr Joseph and his wonderful team have given me the gift of sight. I underwent LASIK surgery and days later not only was I able to see perfectly but I was also able to get back to work. Throughout the entire process from my initial consultation all the way through to post-op checkups I felt confident in Dr Joseph as he listened to my concerns, helped me prep for the procedure, and informed me of every step. Not only does he have the best technology to do the procedure but Dr Joseph and his team also have a genuine passion for their patients vision. I couldn’t recommend him more and have referred all my friends and family with glasses/contacts/cataracts. Thank you Dr Joseph and team for everything. I am forever grateful!
I can not put in words how grateful I am to have perfect vision again. I got both my eyes Lasik and it was the best decision ever to get it done by Dr Dylan Joseph. He and his team made me feel very comfortable and provided me with all info. I can recommend him to anybody that needs his service.
I recently (June 2021) had cataract surgery with Dr Dylan Joseph. Every step of the way was professional, from the examination and assessment phase (during which I was fully informed in a manner that I could understand) through the post-operative stage. At all times I felt I was in safe hands and in the care of a first class professional. My procedures were successful and I now have the vision of a twenty-year old. Having to use spectacles for reading is a small price to pay for having my vision so wonderfully restored. It would be remiss of me not to acknowledge Dr Joseph’s support team who ensured, in every respect, that my experience was so fantastic.
Thank you so much to Dr Josephs and his team. I took the trip from Cape Town to get my LASIK eye surgery done by the best, and it was worth every single minute. Thank you for making the whole experience so professional but also warm. I will be forever thankful for my new sight, and look forward to experiencing this world in it’s true colours.

After my wife had her cataract procedure and me having to collect her, I thought it might be a good idea to have a “check up “myself. My own eyes where done 10yrs. ago and at the time I only had two options. Either you could opt to have lens implants for near vision or alternatively for further vision. I opted for further vision with very good results. Dr.Joseph informed me after a consultation that things have advanced and with latest technology he could modify my one lens so i would be able to see far and have no problems with near vision. His suggestion was to laser the weaker eye for near vision. It is the second day after the procedure and gone is the specs. I am thrilled with the results which now means i do not need readers for golf or guess my way around a Garmin unit when cycling. I also need to compliment the team for their professionalism. It is a world class facility and makes one proud to know that this expertise is available on our doorstep.
Dr. Dylan Joseph vs very experienced and makes the removal of cataracts an easy and pleasant experience as he makes it a personal and happy event. All the staff are very pleasant and the rooms and day hospital are spotless and welcoming.
Thank you Dylan for restoring my eyesight! Quick, painfree and professional. A very rewarding experience indeed.
After 60 I simply came to accept that my vision was only half the man I used to be when at 64 during Covid lockdown in 2020, Dylan’s name and the awesome work he does for tired old “cataracted” eyes was mentioned by a cycling comrade. Now, I love mountain biking and your confidence is challenged on a fast single track without good vision which normally translates into quick response and avoiding injury or even death. Not to mention trying to decipher what your smart watch and Strava device are trying to tell you without readers on the trail. I am also a photographer and need good vision to record the beauty of life in crisp focus and colour. Dylan Joseph provided exactly what he told me he would with the amazing skills and technology he has acquired. My eyesight has been restored to a level I value so much and I am able to continue enjoying the outdoors, photography, cycling and surfing without glasses at close, medium and long range. Many folks are afraid of someone meddling with their precious eyes but I can tell you categorically that although we all know that getting old is not for sissy’s, Dylan Joseph’s corrective surgery for cataracts gives one an amazing new lease on life! Thanks Dylan and team!
I will be forever gratefull to Dr Dylan and his team. Did Lasik on both my eyes. Not even an hour after procedure and my eye sight were better than with glasses. I have to mention, it was not once sore. Amazing amazing amazing.. Thank you !!!!!!
I consider myself very privileged to have found the very best eye surgeon. The latest technology, professional treatment and thoroughness made my experience one off a kind. No stress, no fuss. Thank you Dr Joseph -you and your staff are THE BEST.

Dr Dylan Joseph did an absolutely amazing job on my eyes. After having worn contact lenses for 48 years and strong Astigmatism, he corrected my eyes to 100% eyesight. No lenses or reading glasses anymore! Thank you Dr Joseph, you are the best ever!
Dr Dylan Joseph is an excellent ophthalmologist. He has the Midas touch. I had cataract surgery in my left and right eye. My life has changed forever, I can apply perfect lipstick in a normal mirror, read price tags, read a restaurant menu without glasses. Visit Dr Joseph and change your quality of life forever. Toss those glasses out. Live your best life through your eyes.
My whole experience was 5 stars. I chose Dr. Joseph through extensive research on the best eye doctors in SA. He has the latest and highest quality equipment on premises. His staff is professional and kind. I am so pleased with my LASIK results. I can say with complete confidence you would be choosing the best corrective eye surgeon in SA.

Dr Dylan Joseph removed my cataracts and gave me back my sight. I can see close up with my left eye and distance with my right eye. When I went to the hairdresser I was able to go up to the mirror and reapply my lipstick perfectly. Dr Joseph changed my life in every way.

Dylan Joseph is actually the best. Latest technology, he has by far the most positive independent google reviews and has years of international experience. I had my eyes done last week and it has been an incredible experience from start to finish. The staff are amazing, attentive and just so down to earth. He is so professional and each option is explained from start to finish. I did a lot of research before hand and when it comes to your eyes you only want the best in the business. I cant speak enough about how awesome thy are and how quick the procedure was.
My cataract surgery was a wonderful experience from start to finish. I felt very safe in the competent hands of Dr Dylan Joseph. The results were a huge success, and I now have 20/20 vision. Mariska upfront is extremely helpful and pleasant, as are the rest of Dr Joseph’s Team. We are fortunate to have available to us in Knysna such expertise in a state of art facility. Many Thanks once again

Thank you so much Dr Joseph!
I was one of the very first in the country to “brave” laser surgery to correct long distance vision some 30 years ago. Sadly, the operation was not successful and in fact my cornea was scarred to the extent that I needed to wear glasses all the time (multifocal) and have them replaced sometimes more often than annually (at significant cost over the years).
My husband was ecstatic with the results he achieved following corrective surgery by Dr Joseph and this gave me the courage to approach him as well, not with much hope I might add that anything could be done to sort out my failing vision.
Well just like my husband’s surgery, success was achieved and now a whole new world of vision lies before me – only needing reading glasses for computer work and reading.
In my opinion, Dr Joseph is in a class of his own when it comes to corrective surgery – (having had appointments with so many in this field over the years).
I cannot recommend Dr Joseph highly enough and wish him and his highly professional team every success as they grow their business.
Knysna is fast becoming a seat of ophthalmic excellence!

Dr Dylan Joseph is a wonderful Surgeon who changed my life I can finally see with out glasses for the first time ever. Not only is he very good at what he does but he’s is very caring and makes you feel so safe.
I cannot say thank you enough Dylan for everything you have done for me
See what our clients have to say about our services.
Seldom in this world of fast-changing values and morals does one find the principles of true professionalism coupled with genuine friendliness and…
I am extremely happy with the professionalism and support provided by Dr. Joseph and his team before, during and after my cataract operation.
For my 40th birthday all I wanted was to be able to see…& today I can!
When I first consulted Dr. Joseph five years ago for a retinal tear, which was successfully repaired, I was immediately impressed by his knowledge, skill and thorough explanation of the procedure. This year Dr. Joseph successfully performed cataract surgery on my eyes, which was a completely painless and uncomplicated experience from start to finish. After 60 years of wearing spectacles, I can now do without them. Dr Joseph is more impressive than ever. It is obvious that this man is passionate about his work and goes the extra mile to get the best possible result for each patient. It is a pleasure to visit his practice – his enthusiasm and attention to detail are shared by all of his staff.

I would recommend Dr. Dylan Joseph for any cataract/laser surgery. After a thorough examination and his observation of my lifestyle, Dr. Joseph advised the type of lenses that will suit me. I cannot remember ever having such an experience before or after an operation. The staff I was dealing with were competent, friendly and very efficient. If you have any fear for such surgery and you want quality care make an appointment as soon as possible. He comes highly recommended and is kind but professional.
You will never forget that first moment when your vision is restored again. Thank you so much for making this possible for me.

Thank you for your very warm welcome last Friday at your wonderful new ‘state-of-the-art’ consulting rooms! Your two years absence abroad has not changed you one little bit, and it was a real pleasure to see you again!
As after our last appointment prior to your departure overseas, I must express my very grateful thanks to you yet once again for restoring my peace of mind! After all your amazingly comprehensive examinations were completed, the ‘All-Clear’ outcome instantly assured me that indeed, all is safe and well! Incredibly good and encouraging news that at my stage in life means all the world! Thank you for your part in that!
My only regret — all things remaining equal — is that there may now no longer be further need to see you! So may I take this opportunity to wish you, your beautiful wife and your daughters, your practice, and your abode back here in South Africa, all the blessings of a really good “wind at your back”!
Seeing for reading, driving, views and sunsets are all so important to me. The Lasik surgery was a painless procedure in the most professional of hands and I would recommend this miraculous, virtually instantaneous procedure to anyone who battles to focus clearly in some or other manner. Not only is Dylan Joseph a great and talented doctor at the forefront of the latest surgery, but also his before and aftercare manner is exceptional too. Knysna is so lucky to have this available right on our doorstep. I am happy to be rid of the frustrations that come with reading glasses! Thank you again and again!
Thank you, Dr. Joseph for your passion and personal interest in achieving the best vision possible for each of your patients. I had cataract surgery two weeks ago on eyes that have very different vision as a result of a childhood squint. The lenses you chose for me have resulted in excellent sight without glasses. Amazing. Your knowledge, experience, equipment and team are world class. We are so fortunate to have you in Knysna.
For the first time in 63 years, I can see without glasses! I now have a functional vision all the way from long-distance to reading: I can cycle without glasses, drive without them, watch TV without them. It really is amazing that cataract surgery has not only removed the haze but also corrected most of my other vision defects as well.
The procedures were quick and painless. Apart from a slight scratchiness while the tiny cuts healed there was no discomfort at all, and I was able to see perfectly well within an hour or two. From then on it just got better and better.
For driving and outdoor purposes I definitely need sunglasses now, because there is so many more light entering my eyes. The world is truly a brighter place…at least as far as my vision is concerned! I decided to have multi-focal photochromic lenses in my sunglasses, so as to have a pin-sharp vision for driving and also the ability to see really small objects close-up. But I don’t have HAVE to use them, and that makes all the difference. I am free from the tyranny of putting glasses on as soon as I wake up, and only taking them off when I go sleep. Wish I’d had that choice 60 years ago!
Many thanks to Dylan for improving my quality of life. He and his friendly and professional team made the whole process something to welcome, rather than to be faced in trepidation and anxiety.
Had my eyes lasered yesterday – amazing to read the fine print again without my specs! What professional service from Dylan and his team using totally unique and high tech equipment. A great experience and so chuffed I made the choice.
