Welcome to the website of the Johannesburg and Cape Animal Eye Hospitals (JAEH and CAEH) - a referral veterinary practice dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of animal eye disease. The practice was founded in 1996 by registered veterinary ophthalmologists Drs Goodhead and Venter. In 2008, Dr Lo-An Odayar joined the JAEH.
Although dogs, cats and horses comprise the majority of our patients, we have treated a wide variety of other animals including, birds, cheetahs, elephants, lions, rhinos, snakes, and tigers.
Our Gauteng hospital is situated in Fourways, Johannesburg and our Western Cape hospital is in Panorama, Cape Town. We also consult from the Faculty of Veterinary Science at Onderstepoort, near Pretoria. We are actively involved with the university lecturing both pre- and post- graduate veterinary students. In addition to consulting in Johannesburg and Pretoria, we hold referral clinics approximately every 3 months in Durban. We have also performed surgeries in Southern African countries such as Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia. We make regular consulting and surgery trips in The United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong and Malaysia.
We are involved with all aspects of veterinary ophthalmology and receive referrals from around Southern Africa for cataract surgery in cats, dogs, horses and wildlife.
