Maintaining the health of your eyes and your vision is a priority no matter what age. While optometrists are able to aid you with prescription glasses and contact lenses, ophthalmologists are eye surgeons who are able to diagnose and treat eye conditions and diseases including glaucoma, macular degeneration, double vision or cataracts. If you are experiencing loss of vision, changes in vision, have an injury, infection or pain in the eyes it may be best for you to see an eye specialist to protect your precious sense of sight and help you maintain your vision for the rest of your lifetime.

Cataract removal on both eyes with a combo with vitrectomy in the left. Both surgery admissions were dealt with, with efficient and meticulous staff. Dr Uys is a genius opthal and he and his staff are so compassionate. My comfort was a priority, and I have my sight back! Thank you to everyone involved. Hettie Randall
