As part of the eye centre, we can offer you a large range of the latest scans and tests to ensure the best assessment, tailored for your needs. Our appointments are spaced out to allow adequate time with the doctor. Although we do our best to keep to our appointment times, on occasion, unforeseen emergencies may take precedence and we ask for your patience in this regard.

 

We deal extensively with medical aids for consultations, special tests and medical/surgical procedures. We regularly see Keycare and Transmed patients. Please check on the specific referral requirements of your medical aid.

 

We consult on a daily basis, Monday to Friday and one Saturday a month, by appointment only. Dr Ballim who has been in Private practice since 2011 has taken over Dr W.G. Collins Parklands Practice and is affiliated to Netcare Parklands Hospital. If your medical aid insists, certain cases can be done at City Hospital.
We are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa, The Ophthalmological Society of South Africa and the Board of Healthcare Funders.
