ACADEMIC PARTNERSHIP WITH CAPE EYE HOSPITAL
The Cape Eye Hospital has been accredited by the University of Stellenbosch as part of our teaching platform. Our division regularly take part in their strong academic programme. Registrars are allowed to observe/assist with surgery by the ophthalmologists in private practice, in order to get exposure to some surgical procedures not available at our hospital. An open invitation has been extended by the Cape Eye Hospital to senior registrars to be taught LASIK surgery; suitable candidates for surgery are recruited from the Tygerberg patient profile.
