Durban Optical Hospitals

Specialist Eyecare, Visioncare and Opticalcare products and services are currently too expensive for the average patient. Therefore Durban Optical has created Durban Optical Hospitals to enable the provision of Specialist Eyecare, Visioncare and Opticalcare products and services to the general public on a low cost basis.

Durban Optical Hospitals

Specialist Eyecare, Visioncare and Opticalcare products and services on a low cost basis seems impossible for the state and the existing private sector. However by utilising Durban Optical's integrated supply, demand, volume and value chain and by limiting the use of Durban Optical Hospitals outlets to only those practitioners whom have consulting rooms onsite, Durban Optical Hospitals will be able to provide Specialist Eyecare, Visioncare and Opticalcare products and services on a low cost basis.

It is intended that Optical College will use Durban Optical Hospitals outlets as training centres for the Eyecare, Visioncare and Opticalcare students whom are learning their art and science. This will ensure that Durban Optical Hospitals is always positioned to be the leading provider of Specialist Eyecare, Visioncare and Opticalcare products and services at all times.

Durban Optical Hospitals

Traditionally, Specialist Eyecare, Visioncare and Opticalcare products and services have been out of the financial reach of the average patient. Medical aids, public hospitals and the National Health Insurance Scheme are not going to change that situation in a sustainable manner. By creating Durban Optical Hospitals, Durban Optical is taking the initiative to provide low cost Specialist Eyecare, Visioncare and Opticalcare products and services to the general public.

Durban Optical Hospitals

With consulting rooms for Doctors of Optometry, Orthoptists, Occularists, Ophthalmologists and Ophthalmic Surgeons; Durban Optical Hospitals 4 outlets will function 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Durban Optical Holdings is going to make specialised Eyecare, Visioncare and Opticalcare available to the public at rates far less than the prevailing prices. Each Durban Optical Hospitals outlet will have wards for in-patient medium term treatment, in-patient short term treatment and out-patient treatment. This means that the recovery time for patients during and post treatment will be in hospital. Durban Optical is determined to source or manufacture intraocular lenses at groundbreaking prices so as to make cataract surgery affordable. Durban Optical Hospitals will adhere to the Durban Optical Holdings tariff for both practitioner consultations and in hospital treatments and enforce this tariff without exception.


Durban Optical Hospitals aims to be competitive on the basis of cost leadership and will ensure that all patients are treated with the highest level of professional skill and quality of care. Through Optical College, Durban Optical Hospitals will ensure that all of its resident practitioners (and we will only be working with our resident practitioners) are constantly trained and retrained in the latest and most innovative Eyecare, Visioncare and Opticalcare therapies, treatments and procedures. This includes a focus on long term effective surgery that does not result in Ophthalmic pathology in the future. Durban Optical Clinics and Durban Optical Hospitals are going to work with public academic institutions so that our first-world facilities may serve as training facilities for Eyecare, Visioncare and Opticalcare students from all over the African continent. There are not enough Eyecare, Visioncare and Opticalcare practitioners in Africa and this something we aim to address quite seriously.


While the main purpose of Durban Optical Hospitals will be the treatment of Ophthalmic pathology and the provision of Ophthalmic Surgical services, the specialist areas of Behavioural Optometry, Geriatric Optometry, Low Vision Optometry, Neuro-Optometry and Paediatric Optometry will also feature prominently. Each of the Durban Optical Hospitals will host a Centre for the Prevention of Blindness where specialist eyecare, visioncare and opticalcare services will be provided to the partially sighted and the blind.
