The treatments we offer encompass all ophthalmic related conditions including anterior segment, refractive, vitreoretinal and oculoplastic surgery. Our surgeons achieve the best results by using the latest methods and cutting edge technology. Our procedures include:

Cataract surgery is a procedure to remove the lens of your eye and, in most cases, replace it with an artificial lens. Cataract surgery is used to treat the clouding of the normally clear lens of your eye (cataract).
The aim of Retinal Detachment Surgery is to reattach the retina in order to prevent or reverse vision loss. We successfully treat retinal detachments mostly through vitreous retinal surgery.
Vitreoretinal surgery is the treatment of disorders related to the retina, vitreous and macula. Our ophthalmic surgeons use specialised techniques, instruments and solutions to treat conditions that include retinal detachment, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and uveitis. Retinal and vitreous problems can cause severe loss of vision and even blindness. In some cases, surgery may be beneficial – if done at the right time – might prevent severe loss of vision.
LASIK
LASIK, which stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis, is surgery used to correct vision in patients who are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism. All laser vision correction surgeries work by reshaping the cornea, the clear front part of the eye, so that light traveling through it is properly focused onto the retina located in the back of the eye.

LASEK
Laser epithelial keratomileusis, or LASEK, combines benefits of the two most commonly performed procedures — LASIK and PRK. LASEK eye surgery is used to treat astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness. We may recommend LASEK surgery if you have thinner corneas.

Glaucoma treatment usually starts with medication and surgery is the last resort. Surgery reduces the pressure in the eyes by opening blocked drainage angles or creating a new opening that fluid can flow through to leave the eye. In some cases surgery may be done to relieve pain caused by glaucoma.
Also known as crossed eyes, strabismus surgery is performed to strengthen or weaken the effect of one or more of the muscles that move the eye. The procedure is ideally performed during childhood.
The causes of eye trauma vary greatly, but usually results in ruptured globes and corneal lacerations requiring surgical reconstruction. The Cape Eye Hospital’s surgeons are experienced in treating all injuries resulting from ocular trauma.
Includes all forms of Oculoplastic surgical procedures.
The Cape Eye Hospital has a diverse range of specialist diagnostic technology, which is used to assist our surgeons in providing the most accurate diagnosis possible.
