Somerset Eye Specialist Medical and Surgical Centre is based in Paardevlei, Somerset West, Cape Town and was originally the vision of a group of like-minded ophthalmologists who wished to create an affordable, dedicated eye care centre of excellence in South Africa.
Aware of the ever-increasing cost barrier to quality medical care for patients and the impact of the depreciating rand on solo practitioners, Somerset Eye's ophthalmologists pooled resources and skills to create a surgical and diagnostic eye care centre comparable to the best internationally.
As eye specialists, Somerset Eye's ophthalmologists, nurses and medical staff believe in maintaining cutting edge technology and high standards to ensure patients receive quality, international-level eye care.
Somerset Eye strives to deliver comprehensive and specialized eye care for all patients. The ophthalmology centre, with which the medical and nursing staff are proud to be associated, also aim to provide the best possible care for all patients with eyesight problems.
Accessible, affordable, high-quality care … the vision and mission of Somerset Eye!
In treating eyesight problems, Somerset Eye also provides various same-day surgical treatments in partnership with Cure Day Hospital, housed in the same building in Somerset West.
With eight day hospitals around the country, three of which can be found in the Western Cape, Cure Day Hospitals aim to be the leaders of quality ambulatory (day case) surgery in the country. The hospital group also strives to provide excellence in service delivery, efficiencies, comfort and affordability to doctors, patients and funders.
Together with Cure Day Hospital, Somerset Eye provides the highest quality, affordable day surgery for eye conditions in a state of the art facility.
