Free Corneal transplant gives new hope

Free Corneal Transplant - Dr Beyers Botha with patient

A Knysna resident who lost his job after going blind six years ago has new hope after a corneal transplant, an ultra delicate operation performed on him at the George Surgical Centre in George last week.
William Lotter (42) says he has received a second chance in life thanks to cooperation between the Knysna Lions Club and Garden Route Eye Clinic. "For years I could not work and the first thing I want to do when my eye has completely healed, is get to work," Lotter told the George Herald.
Because it is an expensive operation and Lotter was without an income, it seemed an impossible dream, but he approached the Lions Club of Knysna in July this year. Thanks to their involvement, he received the operation free of charge. Dr Beyers Botha, the ophthalmologist from the Garden Route Eye Clinic who performed the corneal transplant (keratoplasty), says all the specialists involved provided their services without charge and the George Surgical Centre provided its facilities at cost price, which was paid by the Lions Club. Dr Hans Graser was the anaesthetist.


Our gift to the community for Eye Care Awareness Month

GSC panoramicGarden Route Eye Clinic supports National Eye Care Awareness month. To lessen the burden on our Provincial Hospitals, we are performing cataract surgeries during October at George Surgical Centre for patients in our community who cannot afford private healthcare.

A total of 40 cataract surgeries will be performed and 1 strabismus surgery. All our surgeons at Garden Route Eye Clinic perform these surgeries free of charge.




Garden Route Eye Clinic has consulting rooms in Knysna and George, as well as in Oudtshoorn bringing eye care closer to home in the Southern Cape. Specialist eye surgery is performed at George Surgical Centre. We also perform surgery in Knysna.



More than half a century's worth of combined practice, professionalism, and utmost dedication to their fields of expertise assure patients that they're in the hands of experienced ophthalmologists.



The George Surgical Centre, established in 2012, is a world-class day hospital dedicated to modern Eye Surgery. Other procedures such as Cosmetic Surgery, is also performed here. Easy access via George Airport enables service delivery to patients from other areas outside the Southern Cape.
