About us

Over the past 17 years Stellenbosch Optometrist has grown from a small practice in a shopping mall to a massive 220sqm shopping destination in the Memorylane building on the corner of Banghoek and Andringa street in Stellenbosch. We are proud of the upmarket premises we have created that incorporate a rustic Winelands look with pallets and wine barrels. We love Stellenbosch!

Our optometrist, Marcel D Snyman, has been in optometry practice for the past 10 years, having qualified in B Optom at the University of The Free State. The vision of the practice is to provide every patient with personalised attention, professional diagnosis and advice, especially in the fitting and suitability of frames for the client’s personality and features. Stellenbosch Optometrist’s aim is to improve the sight of all their clients and thus positively impact their quality of life.
