About me

Dr Jan Venter MD, IMAB Clinical Director
Ophthalmic Surgeon

I am a world leading ophthalmic surgeon renowned for performing laser eye surgery and intraocular treatments. I have performed more than 76,000 procedures, including LASIK, Epi-LASEK, PRK, Phakic intraocular lens treatment, as well as Cataract and Refractive Lens Exchange treatments and I am registered with the General Medical Council (GMC). I am a fully trained Ophthalmologist who has undergone additional specialist training in refractive surgery.

I am a full time ophthalmic surgeon and Clinical Director of the International Medical Advisory Board (IMAB) and a member of various affiliated bodies and societies including the British Society of Refractive Surgery and the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Twice every year I attend the IMAB Conferences where I sit on a panel along with some of the world’s most eminent Refractive Surgeons including Mr. Steve Schallhorn, former Head of Ophthalmology for the US Navy.

Born and educated in South Africa, I qualified from Pretoria University in 1973 and over the years progressed to become Professor and Head of the Ophthalmology Department at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa.

In 1993 I introduced excimer laser and ambulatory cataract surgery into South Africa, making these procedures available to the wider public for the first time. From 1993 to 1996 I served as President of the Ophthalmological Society of South Africa.
