Testimonials - Beryl Carvalho - Eyes Alive


Good morning, Beryl

I just couldn't find the time to thank you enough Again for the lovely service , I am so truly grateful and satisfied with your service.

I don't get people looking at the other eye anymore when we are having a conversation, that tells me alot about the artistic side of it.

Even my kids tell me it looks so original.

It really makes me feel so confident..

I can't thank you enough for all the time and effort you put on my eye when I am in your capable hands,

Looking forward to pay you a visit soon.
Kindest regards


Hi Beryl I have had major problems with my eyes from the time I was 18 years old following National Service which I did in 1988. In total I have had close to 18 eye operations, both left and right, I am now 53 years old. In 2019 I was admitted to a hospital in the Northern Cape as I suffered damage to my left eye and following four surgeries and spending 45 days in hospital lost my eye, following an evisceration operation. It has been three years and a few months following my operation and was helped by other oculists who tried their utmost to help me. Due to the change of my socket I needed to get a new prosthesis. By the grace of God I was accepted as a Military Veteran and qualified for medical assistance through the State and was referred to Beryl Carvalho. From the time that I met Beryl and her team I was made to feel very welcome and their professional approach was nothing but that compared to international standards. As a patient we are so eager to get our prosthetic eye and expect this to be done the day that we walk in there. This is not so and if there is anything that I can share with other people that have lost an eye, please be patient. The amount of time that Beryl and her team spend making your eye is of paramount importance to to the final outcome of a perfect fit. Be patient and walk the walk with her. The care that Beryl puts into making an eye is so important and nothing can be rushed, the curing process of making an eye prosthesis is of paramount importance. Beryl, you have given me a new lease on life, improved my confidence and made me feel whole again. The uncomfortable socket that I had is a thing of the past. Once again I would like to thank you for the passion that you have for your work and most of all your caring attitude for your patients. May God Bless you and your business abundantly. To you Vivienne, thanks for being so reliable with regards to confirming appointments and being Beryl's right hand. Thank you and God Bless you guys.

Hi Beryl

This is just a quick message to say thank you so very much for everything. There are no words to express my gratitude for everything. My outlook on life has completely changed since I had the eye done and my self confidence is through the roof. The only regret I now have is that I waited so long to have the eye done.
I recommend that anyone reading this and that is in anyway thinking of having a lens or eye made comes to see the team at Eyes Alive.
So thank you one again Beryl for being with me every step of the way and changing my life for the better. May you and your business continue to grow from strength to strength.
Much appreciation.


I would luv to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Job well done, highly appreciated. May the Lord Almighty God bless you a thousand fold.

Hi Beryl

Ek wil net graag baie dankie se dat jy die prostese so mooi en oorspronklik gemaak het. 

Al wat nog kort is dat die oog moet kan sien, dan was hy perfek.

Dankie weereens vir jou en Perdo se harde werk, en dat ons julle ons vriende kan noem en nie net iemand wat ons ken nie. 

Pas julself mooi op!!

Just want to let you know that the eye fits well. Thank you very much and I'll see you next year. Keep well.



This 11 year old patient found out how old I am and told me not to worry, I still work well. So I asked him for that in writting because it was so much fun

Dear Beryl,

Thank you so much for all your help. I am very happy with my new eye and my family love it. Words cannot express what you have done for me. Thank you.

Kind regards


One of the worst days of my life was the day I went blind, but one of the best was definitely the day I got my confidence back

That is what Beryl from EyesAlive gave me.

I felt welcome as soon as I sat in her chair, she has so much experience that you immediately feel at ease, because you just know you're in good hands.

Not only did Beryl make me a new set of eyes, she got me in touch with a support system. She has changed my life in a very positive way.

It needs to be said that Beryl is an amazing person

Thank you so much to everyone at EyesAlive, not only for my eyes but everything you helped me with.

P.S My husband says I look great.


Dear Beryl,

I am writing to thank you for taking the time and patience to help me with my eye. Previously I had prosthetic eye that had been donated to me but not specifically made for me and although I was very grateful it gave me many problems with continued infections and it was sometimes painful.

I was then lucky to again to receive help from Beryl at Eyes Alive and they were kind enough to look at my eye and measure me to fit a prosthetic eye that was just for me. It has made me feel so different and now I can walk into a room or any situation and feel proud rather than embarrassed.

I want to thank you Beryl and the team at Eyes Alive for creating this opportunity for me. I appreciate it far more than anyone will ever realise. It has truly changed my life for the better.

Yours Faithfully


Dear Beryl

On behalf of Beatrice, her family and all the people who contributed to her financial assistance, I send my sencere thanks to you for the wonderful treatment you gave to Beatrice. You not only upgraded her physical appearance but also boosted her psychological well being. You should have seen her when we arrived at Entebbe airport, she was a new person full of confidence and ready to face the world. I would like to personally thank you for your financial assistance as you accepted to work on Beatrice's eye below your standard costs. I further salute you for the homely atmosphere you offered to us throughout the time we spent coming back and forth to your office. You definitely went beyond your call of duty.

To all this I say: baie baie baie Dankie!

Thanks to Beryl she is a great and wonderful specialist.
