Hi, I’m Dr Ants Haavel

As the founder of KSA Eye Center, I'm proud to lead our medical activities with a deep commitment to enhancing vision and improving lives.

Having corrected nearly 30,000 pairs of eyes, my journey in ophthalmology has been enriched by extensive global learning, from the University of Tartu where I began in 1989, to advanced professional courses across Europe and Asia.

My expertise is not just based on education but on real-world experience in countries like Estonia, Finland, Sweden, France, Germany, and beyond.

Beyond my professional life, I find joy in reading and sailing, which I believe adds to my perspective as a surgeon.

Trust and credibility in my work come from this blend of global knowledge, hands-on practice, and a genuine passion for what I do.

Dr Ants Haavel
