Dr Philip Phatudi enjoys General Ophthalmology with a special interest in Glaucoma and Cataract surgery. His passion for people leads to his love for Community Ophthalmology.

Dr Philip Phatudi obtained his undergraduate medical training from the

University of Pretoria. It was during this time that he developed a keen

interest in Ophthalmology, and decided to pursue further training. While

training as a medical officer in Ophthalmology, he became involved in

community cataract outreach programs in the Limpopo region, where he

was born, and realized there was a great need for eye services, especially

in the more impoverished rural areas.

He pursued his specialization at the University of the Free State, where

he spent 4 years specializing in Ophthalmology. After two years as an

Ophthalmologist, he was awarded the ICO-World Glaucoma Association

three month Fellowship, and spent three months in Helsinki, Finland,

specializing in glaucoma.

He is married to Dr Precious Phatudi, who is also an Ophthalmologist,

and enjoys travelling with his family.
