The Nelspruit eye Instititute was started by Dr Roelie van Rooyen as a solo practice in 1974, after which it was taken over by Dr Danie Louw in 1986. He was later joined by Dr Carl Wilms in 1989. Together they built The Nelspruit Eye Institute into a centre of excellence in the Lowveld.
Dr Louw and Dr Wilms, now retiring from private practice, are handing over the reins to Dr Dean van der Westhuizen and Dr Morgan Hayes who aspire to continue the legacy that has already been established.
Nelspruit Eye Institute has a vision for a clearer future, for the institution itself and for the patients it serves.
