Message from our CEO

Welcome to Visiomed Eye and Laser Clinic’s web site. I trust you will find our web site informative. Visiomed has a tradition of world-class eye care in a friendly environment. My staff is dedicated to their profession, well qualified, and with a strong management team we run the largest Private Refractive Hospital in South Africa – a dream initiated by its founder (and my father in law), the late Dr Michiel Kritzinger, the ‘Father of Lasik’, who passed away in 2000.

“Professionally We Serve. Personally We Care” is more than just a captivating slogan, it is a philosophy that describes the dedication of our employees, medical staff and in caring for those in their time of need. While Visiomed is committed to providing advanced services and technology, it is the people that are the secret to our success.

With the ever changing patient expectations, medical aid price regulation, the South African‘s economical challenges in the way health care is provided, our commitment at Visiomed to provide exceptional patient care remains strong. Everyone is important at Visiomed, and we want everyone who enters our doors to experience the same level of outstanding care.

As part of a patient satisfaction initiative, Visiomed recently implemented a program called, “20/20 over happy vision “. We collaborated with a Senior Clinical Review Panel of Surgeons who constantly review the surgical outcomes and patient satisfaction of all surgeons working under the Visiomed banner.

Visiomed and its Clinical Review Panel believe that our ongoing investment in our people and innovative technology has enabled growth and success in all aspects of Eye Surgery at Visiomed.

“My personal objective and pledge to keep on investing in my staff and the constantly evolving technology, I want to bring our patients closer to an age of ‘zero defect’ with bladeless technology.”
