About

About us

With over 20 years experience in optics and an intense passion for people we have only the best in mind for each patient that enters our practice. Great service is extremely important to us, from making your appointment right through to where you receive your glasses, sunglasses or contact lenses and after that for years to come.

We firmly believe in building long term relationships with our patients.

Our focus is on unsurpassed style, quality and comfort without compromising price, although we can also be price sensitive where necessary. We are contracted with most, if not all, medical aids and claim directly from the medical aid on behalf of the patient. All Discovery Health patient’s receive 20% discount from us and Vitality members receive 2000 vitality points for glaucoma screenings included in your comprehensive eye examination. Dirk has completed a Diabetes Course for Comprehensive Patient Care through the Graduate Institute of Optometry to broaden his knowledge with regard to diabetic patients in the practice. He is accredited by the Opthalmological Society of South Africa to perform Diabetic Retinopathy screenings in order to evaluate possible blood vessel damage that a diabetic patient may have incurred due to their condition. He also works closely with other diabetic practitioners in George to ensure that his diabetes patients get the best all round care to manage their condition effectively. The practice is also a CDE (Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology) registered provider.
