Good Shepherd Catholic Hospital Eye Clinic provides eye care to the people of Eswatini (former Swaziland) and neighboring countries. As a small and dedicated team, we offer a comprehensive service.
We place great value in treating everyone that is in need regardless of socio-economic considerations. We firmly believe that increased accessibility to our services is the key to eliminating treatable blindness in Eswatini.
Burden of eye conditions in Eswatini
The state of eye care in Africa stands in alarming contrast to the rest of the world, with preventable and treatable eye conditions being leading causes of blindness. Blindness has huge economic implications not only for individuals and communities but for the country as a whole. Poverty predisposes one to blindness and blindness exacerbates poverty through lost educational and employment opportunities. Loss of sight therefore represents a profound public health, social and economic problem.
