Background of Eyeworld Optical - Lesotho

Eyeworld Optical - Lesotho is an optometric practice which was established in 2007 by Thabo Seoka. It started as a single branch operating from Thursday to Saturday in a western Lesotho town of Maputsoe, located in Leribe district. As the demand increased, we started operating from Monday to Saturday in March 2009. In November 2011 we opened another branch in Botha Bothe, also in Lesotho.

Profile of Thabo Seoka
Thabo acquired his Bachelor of Optometry (B.Optom) degree from the University of the North (now called University of Limpopo). After completion of his degree he was employed as an optometrist and practice manager from 2001 to 2006. He then negotiated with his employer to work for three days per week while the rest of the week he was establishing his own practice. His employer agreed to the arrangement and was actually instrumental in establishing the practice. In 2009 both agreed that Thabo should focus on his practice on a full time basis. The move helped Thabo to build the practice to where it is today.
