How do I book a consultation?

  • A consultation may be booked for a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday between 08:00 and 17:00.
  • For first time visits, the latest appointment is at 15:00 to enable sufficient time for a full ocular assessment.
  • Please bring a pair of sunglasses as your eyes will be dilated and you will be light sensitive afterwards.
  • If you are driving a long distance, it is recommended that you have someone to drive you home.

If I need surgery, what do I do?

For Cataract Surgery:

Step 1:

  • A consultation can be booked for a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday between 08:00 and 17:00.
  • For first time visits, the latest appointment is at 15:00 to enable sufficient time for a full ocular assessment.
  • Please bring along a pair of sunglasses as your eyes will be dilated and you will be light sensitive afterwards.
  • If you are driving a long distance, it is recommended that you have someone to drive you home.
  • If you are diagnosed with cataracts and would like to go ahead with surgery, various measurements will need to be taken prior to surgery.
  • Cataract surgery is performed on a Thursday only, on one eye at a time. This means that you will undergo surgery on two consecutive Thursdays if you have cataracts in both eyes.

Step 2:

  • You will be given a number of forms to complete before your surgery, as well as step-by-step pre-operative instructions.

Step 3:

  • On the day of your procedure, report to the Mediclinic Morningside Reception (Ground floor) at 06:00, unless otherwise advised.
  • Bring your medical aid card and your I.D book (or passport) with you.
  • You will need someone to bring you to the Clinic, as you may not legally drive yourself after surgery.
  • Dress in comfortable clothes.
  • You will be discharged after lunchtime following your surgery.
  • Dr Daniel will advise you what time to be at his consulting rooms the following day (Friday) for your post-op assessment.

For Keratoconus Related Surgery:

Step 1:

  • A consultation can be booked for a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday between 08:00 and 17:00.
  • For first time visits, the latest appointment is at 15:00 to enable sufficient time for a full ocular assessment.
  • Please bring along a pair of sunglasses as your eyes will be dilated and you will be light sensitive afterwards.
  • If you are driving a long distance, it is recommended that you have someone to drive you home.

  • At this consultation the extent of your Keratoconus will be determined.
  • The procedure best suited to you will be decided on and explained.
  • The two possible procedures most commonly performed on patients with Keratoconus are Trans-Epithelial Corneal Cross-Linking and the insertion of intrastromal Corneal Rings.
  • Both of these procedures are performed on a Friday and you will be seen for a post-operative assessment the following morning – Saturday.
  • Thereafter, depending on your recovery and the type of procedure you have, you will need to be seen for a further 2 or 3 post-operative assessments and eventually on an annual basis.
