Dr. Kraukamp joined the practice in 2017. He previously worked at a successful private ophthalmology group practice in Johannesburg, South Africa. Before entering medical school, Dr. Kraukamp completed his Optometry degree, and practiced as an optometrist for 1 year. His desire to manage more complex eye diseases and learn ophthalmic surgery led him to medical school, followed by an ophthalmology residency program. After his residency, Dr. Kraukamp completed an ophthalmology masters degree in glaucoma. Dr. Kraukamp and his family are very pleased to be living on the Sunshine Coast.
