We recently attended an outreach at Tintswalo Eye Clinic in Acornhoek, which ran over the course of the weekend of the 19th of March 2021.
Ophthalmologist Dr Caroline Gooding, along with Dr dos Ramos, Dr Sandri, Dr Payne, Dr Neu Ner, Dr Benningfield and the Tshemba foundation, volunteered to restore sight to and change the lives of forty local residents.
Our team members, Amy Prinsloo and Francois Gouws, equipped with the Oertli CataRhex3 and expert product knowledge provided much needed support to th
e surgeons in this short-staffed environment.
According to Francois, the experience was very enriching “The doctors were amazing people to work with and all masters of their craft. It was a heart-warming experience for me and Amy to be in theatre with them and watch these high profile surgeons help people that are so far from any kind of medical care like this”.
It was an honour for Envision Africa to be involved with such a worthwhile effort and we hope to be afforded a similar opportunity in the future.
