About us

Established in 2005, Stellenbosch Optometrists has been committed to serving the local community with exceptional eye care services for almost 20 years. Founded with a vision to make optical correction accessible and affordable to all, we pride ourselves on building a relationship with our patients.  

Conveniently located on the Corner of Dorp and Piet Retief Street in central Stellenbosch, our practice is easily accessible to residents and visitors alike. We offer comprehensive eye care services, including a full eye examination and a wide selection of prescription glasses, sunglasses, and contact lenses. 

 What sets us apart is our dedication to providing prompt service. With an onsite laboratory, we can craft prescription glasses quickly and efficiently, eliminating the wait time often associated with obtaining new eyewear. Additionally, we boast one of the largest stock holdings in the Cape Winelands area, ensuring that our patients have access to a diverse range of eyewear options to suit their individual needs and preferences.


At the heart of our practice is our optometrist, Gillian Alsemgeest.

With a Bachelor of Optometry degree from the University of the Free State, Gillian brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to every consultation, ensuring that each patient receives personalized and attentive care.
