With over 25 years of experience, the Jhb & Cape Animal Eye Hospitals' have been examining and treating animal eyes.

Welcome to the Johannesburg and Cape Animal Eye Hospitals - 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.


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. In addition to consulting in Johannesburg and Cape Town, we have also performed surgeries in Southern African countries such as Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia. In the past, we have made regular consulting trips to the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia and Hong Kong.  We currently still visit Hong Kong on a regular basis.


We are involved in all aspects of veterinary ophthalmology and receive referrals from around Southern Africa for cataract surgery in cats, dogs, horses and wildlife.
