Dr. Talitha Maritz
Dr Talitha Maritz has been working at the Olympia Eye & Laser Cantre since 2004.
She qualified as an ophthalmologist in 1992, and practised at the Pretoria Eye Institute for eight years before relocating back to Windhoek, her original birth place.
This amounts to 22 years of experience in general ophthalmology, with special interests in cataract surgery, oculoplastic surgery, glaucoma management, and retinal diseases, as well as paediatric ophthalmology.
Dr Maritz is a member of the South African Society of Oculoplastic Surgeons (SASOPS), and attends conferences annually, remaining updated on the latest scientific research in her fields of interest.
Apart from her dedication to her work, she enjoys playing the flute and keeping fit with mountain biking. She completed the Nedbank Desert Dash in a 4-man mixed team in 2018.
