At the John Hill Eye & Laser Centre, we help improve your eyesight to the greatest possible extent.
We operate in a dedicated eye theatre and laser room, and the Schwind Amaris 500 Excimer Laser we use is one of the most technologically advanced eye laser systems available today.
With this sophisticated equipment our surgeon, Dr John Hill, ensures that you receive world class eye laser surgery. Over the course of his career he has lectured on 5 different continents on corneal diseases and refractive surgery, and performed over 60,000 refractive procedures – including over 45,000 eye laser treatments.
Our centre is situated in Claremont, Cape Town, and we offer a free consultation to assess whether you qualify to improve your vision with eye laser treatment.
Covid-19 update: how our precautions affect your appointments with us
Now the lockdown has been officially partially lifted and we are back at work seeing patients, every precaution will be taken to ensure the safety of our patients and our staff.
Please let us know prior to your appointment if you have any COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, or any other flu-like symptoms, or if you have come into contact with anyone displaying these symptoms, as we would need to reschedule your appointment.
Here are some of the things we have put into place post lockdown:
- We have procured alcohol solutions to spray and wipe every surface before and after each patient visit.
- Following this, all non-disposable instruments, lamps, head lights, treatment consoles, refractor units, countertops, etc. will be disinfected between patients.
- We have hand sanitiser dispensers available on the reception counter, and temperature screening is available with an infra-red non-contact thermometer.
- All staff will wear personal protection when coming into contact with anyone at the practice. This has been put in place to protect us and yourselves from any possible transmission.
- We have increased the time between bookings so that there is a maximum of 4 patients in the practice at a time to reduce contact and increase social distancing.
Our entire team have been briefed on the guidelines and policies as governed by our local Health Department and the National Institute for Communicable Diseases. We have also implemented the guidelines as proposed by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
