about dr junaid zondi
It all began when I was doing my community service at Dundee Hospital, where I witnessed Dr Ramdharee doing cataract surgery. I started joining him and fell in love with eyes. After my community service year, I decided to apply for a specialisation post which I got at the prestigious University of Cape Town, where I became a member of the College of Ophthalmologists and received my Master of Medicine Degree in 2015.
I am a local, born and bred in Dundee and I have a very special place in my heart for this community and I could see the need for eye services in this District, as it is so underserviced, also as part of giving back to the community it felt right to come back home and offer the skills that I have acquired in my training over the years.
Prior to my practice in ophthalmology, I tried to gain as much experience as possible in other disciplines, which lead me to obtaining a Diploma in Mental Health, and this for me stands out.
I did my undergraduate studies at Witwatersrand University in Johannesburg. I then went on to do my internship at Somerset Hospital in Cape Town and then I came back home to do Community Service, it is then that I got exposed to Ophthalmology and went on to specialize at the University of Cape Town in 2015. I worked at Eerste River Hospital in Cape Town, which does high output cataract surgeries and I gained lots of experience in cataract surgery. For the past 2 years I have been doing an unofficial fellowship in Retinal Surgery at Baragwanath Hospital in Johannesburg.
