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 special tests and medical/surgical procedures. Please check on the specific referral requirements of your medical aid.
We consult on a daily basis, Monday to Friday 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 and Durban Eye Hospital.
