We are proud to announce the opening of a UCT/Envision Africa Phaco Lab in Cape Town. The Phaco Lab will enable registrars to simulate Phaco surgery, practice surgical techniques and maintain operating skills, especially during the pandemic when theatre opportunities are limited.
This was made possible by a collaboration between Envision Africa and Dr Hamzah Mustah (Consultant), Prof Nagib Du Toit (Head of Ophthalmology at UCT) and Mr. Deon Minnies (Head of Community Health Eye Institute UCT).
The Phaco lab was officially opened on the 15th of February 2021 , and our Envision Africa team are actively involved in assisting Doctors with the Phaco technology of the surgical platform at the centre – the Oertli Faros.
Envision Africa is committed to supporting the training of registrars and assisting wherever possible with future training programmes.
Together we enable vision.
