PEOPLE OF THE POINT – Dr Zoran Aleksic

As someone with an extensive appreciation and attention for detail, Dr. Aleksic found himself at a young age fascinated by the microscopic, precise and high-tech world of ophthalmology. It is these features which drew him into the meticulous and complex world of the human eye; one where eye surgeons must work synchronously, quickly and faultlessly with their medical team on delicate and minuscule surface areas.

Dr. Zoran Aleksic is an eye surgeon and Ophthalmologist specialising in cataract and laser refractive surgery. He graduated from Belgrade Medical School in 1991. Before specialising, he was involved in provision of eye care in Pietermaritzburg (Edendale Hospital and Grey’s Hospital) in the satellite unit of the University of Natal’s Medical School. His training involved eye care provision in the post of registrar of Ophthalmology at Frere Hospital, East London. He completed his specialist training at University of Cape Town, Groote Schuur Hospital and Red Cross Children’s Hospital.

He is a member of the following associations:

  • Health Professions Council of South Africa
  • South African College of Surgeons
  • British General Medical Council
  • British Specialist Register
  • Ophthalmic Society of South Africa
  • South African Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons (Director)
  • European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons

Dr. Aleksic’s state-of-the-art treatment centre is devoted to creating a premier eye experience through cutting-edge technology and a holistic approach to eyesight. He performs general eye surgeries, eye tests, refractive laser surgery and treats many other conditions. All of this is coupled with break-through technologies and a slick and professional environment.

More exclusively Dr. Aleksic offers cosmetic eye surgery, Botox injections and procedures to patients requesting enhancement for medical or cosmetic reasons.

Dr. Aleksic’s goal is to provide a tailored service to each patient’s eyesight needs when they are in his care. This is achieved through his vast range of treatments on offer, which allow him to produce an eye-care program suited to each specific patient. A fully equipped optical dispensing practice operates from his rooms and a contact lens clinic supports his patients with hard and soft lenses. His rooms’ dispensing area also possesses a selection of elegant, imported frames and day-to-day readers.

Born, raised and schooled in Cape Town with one of his practices now in our centre, Mark Tonkil is this month’s People OF The Point.

Find out where his passion for optometry comes from and what he prefers to do when it isn’t helping people to correct their vision.

Why did you decide to become an Optometrist?
From the time I was probably 10 years old, I would spend school holidays at my father’s optometric practice in Parow.

Where were you before you came to The Point?
I have been and still, am in practice with my father in Parow on Voortrekker Road.

What part of your job do you enjoy the most?
I love giving sight – especially to those that have struggled with their vision previously.

What advice do you have for people aspiring to do Optometry?
Today Optometry is not only about clinical practice and vision.  One needs to aspire to fashion, business and the love of people.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In Cape Town, with my family, practising optometry and loving what I do.

What are your hobbies?
Spending time with family and friends, mountain biking, boxing and optometry

Tell us about your family
I have been married to Bronwen for 18 years and she works with me in the Sea Point practice.  We have three awesome kids, Zara, Mia and Alexander.

Where do you enjoy spending your downtime?
Love unwinding with my family at home and having a braai.

Have you travelled?
I have travelled for both business and pleasure including, Europe, North and South America, Singapore and Thailand.

Until next time,
