1st Corneal transplant

Advanced Western Cape – 1st Corneal transplant

For Sharne van den Heever, age 22, the world will look much brighter after having received a corneal transplant of the left eye at our Advanced Durbanville Surgical Centre on Wednesday, 1 November 2016. 

Sharne had 30% vision with her glasses on and no sight in her left eye for almost two years whilst she was on a waiting list for a corneal transplant.


Dr Jaco van Niekerk, Ophthalmic Surgeon performed the procedure at the Advanced Durbanville facility and Sharne is recovering well.”
