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 and is now only seen on special occasions. Since then Dr Christie Boucher joined the team in 2016 now consulting in Cape Town.


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 are actively involved with the Faculty of Veterinary Science at Onderstepoort lecturing both pre- and postgraduate veterinary students. In addition to consulting in Johannesburg and the Western Cape, 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. Vets are welcome to subscribe to our newsletter by sending an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
