Spectacle independence


Light entering the eye needs to be focused accurately on the retina to permit sharp vision. There are two main structures in the eye that is responsible to focus the light accurately: the cornea at the front of the eye, and the natural lens, situated behind the colour of the eye. Some people need the help of spectacles or contact lenses to improve and sharpen their vision, but there is an alternative.

As an ophthalmologist, Dr Frikkie Hartog offers two corrective eye surgeries to eradicate the need for spectacles entirely.

parallax background


(Ages 18 to 45 years)

By accurately shaping the cornea to sharply focus incoming light, laser eye surgery is aimed at improving a patients’ vision to rid the need for spectacles or contact lenses.



(Ages 50 and older)

While the accommodation potential (ability of the natural lens to focus closer for reading) of the human lens cannot be restored, the resultant spectacle dependence can be permanently eliminated when replaced with an artificial multifocal intra-ocular lens (IOL) during a lens replacement surgery.

It is a privilege for me when a patient trust you with their precious vision, and I make every effort to provide the best possible service and solution to provide spectacle independence.

    I would like to say thank you for the excellent service I received on Wednesday the 22 January 2020  at the practice.   Please forgive me for calling you ladies. I did not want to spell your names wrong.   To the lady that answered my calls, called me back when there were a cancellation and greeted me with a smile when I came to the practice. Thank you for treating me with professional kindness. Your telephone etiquette and customer service is excellent.   To the lady that took me through the preliminary tests. The way you ask the questions and conducted the tests shows that you know what you doing but you do it with kindness and grace. Thank you for being patient  with me through my nervous answers.   To the lady that sees to the payment side of things. Thank you for treating me with kindness and dignity. I know money needs to be paid for a service but you handled it with so much grace.   To Mr. Hartog. Thank you for answering the questions I had and for explaining what was wrong with my eyes. Your skills as a doctor combined with your people skills make you an excellent doctor.   All the best to all of you.

  • Mr. E Groenewald
    Op 47-jarige ouderdom, na ‘n leeftyd van padwedlope pak ek “trail running”
    aan. Nadat ek 3 stelle peperduur kontaklense verloor het op Helderberg, die Outenikwas en Jonkershoekberge en uit wedlope moes onttrek as gevolg hiervan, het ek Dr Frikkie Hartog gevra vir raad. Omdat my oë so sleg was (bril sterkte -16.5 en -17) het hy aanbeveel dat ek ‘n lens-oorplanting ondergaan, soos ‘n katarak operasie.

    Op 7 & 14 Augustus kry ek toe hierdie operasies, eers op die regter- en toe op die linker oog. Na die eerste lensvervanging het dit omtrent ‘n week geneem voordat ek goed kon sien (dit was ‘n spesiale tipe lens). Na die tweede operasie kon ek feitlik dadelik sien met die geopereerde oog. Tans sien ek bykans perfek. Ek werk, lees en bestuur motor sonder enige bril.

    (Voorheen kon ek dit nie waag om oor die pad te stap sonder ‘n bril nie)
    Ek voel dat Dr Hartog my goeie raad gegee het en al die opsies en die meegaande risiko’s aan my verduidelik het. Ek kon dus “oop oë” die besluit neem om my oë te laat opereer. Ek kan hom heelhartig aanbeveel vir sy noukeurigheid en fantastiese diens (en ook die van sy personeel)
    Op 24 September kon ek die “Otter Challenge” hardloop en eindig 3de in my ouderdomsgroep (veterane) en tiende van alle deelnemers (42 km op ongelooflike moeilike terrein – ekwivalent daaraan om Tafelberg 3 keer op en af te klim). Ek sou ten minste ‘n halfuur langer gehardloop het met my kontaklense omdat hulle tot ‘n mate opwasem en skuif en ‘n mens nie die paadjie so goed kan sien nie. As jy hulle dan nog boonop verloor, neem dit baie tyd in beslag en breek jou motivering af vir die res van die wedloop.
    Die feit dat ek nie meer gesukkel het met kontaklense wat verloor nie, het die hele ondervinding vir my verander.

    Vir my was hierdie operasie ‘n lewensveranderende ondervinding. Nou kan ek onbelemmerd my liefde vir trail running beoefen.

    In my gewone daaglikse lewe sien ek baie beter as wat ek ooit tevore, met die kontaklense, kon sien.
