  • My husband went to the Eye Institute for about 2 years for injections. Apparently he has swelling behind the eyes. His sight has actually worsened. I wanted to find out if you accept Discovery Medical Aid, Essential Saver. We live in Gauteng, Centurion, but we don’t mind coming to the Cape. Please help

      • Hi Megan. You will have to speak to the hospital itself. You may want to find an opthamologist (eye specialist) at the hospital. We are not the hospital but you can refer to the contact details above to contact the hospital directly.
