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.
What we do best
Photochromic lenses are spectacle lenses that are clear indoors and darken automatically when exposed to sunlight. The molecules responsible for causing them to darken are activated by the sun's ultraviolet radiation. Because UV rays penetrate clouds, photochromic lenses will darken on overcast days as well as sunny days.
Photochromic lenses typically will not darken inside a vehicle because your windshield blocks most UV rays. They are ideal for people spending a lot of their day outdoors, because they will lighten indoors and you therefore only need one pair of spectacles.
Polarized sunglasses lenses have a special filter that blocks intense reflected light from the sun, reducing glare and discomfort. At Stellenbosch Optometrist we have polarised lenses in all of our sunglasses ranges with Maui Jim being the most popular choice.
Glare washes out colours, obscures details, and fatigues your eyes. Maui Jim’s PolarizedPlus2® lenses eliminate 99.9% of glare, allowing you to see the world at its brilliant best. Featuring the industry's most advanced production techniques, their patented processes create an amazing difference you'll see immediately.
Not so fond of spectacles? Contact lenses are a great alternative. With so many varieties to choose from, nearly everyone can wear them. Daily disposable lenses make wearing contacts a breeze — wear them once and throw them away.
Other options include soft contact lenses, lenses for overnight wear, and special-effect contact lenses. At Stellenbosch Optometrist we will advise you on the best contact lenses for your lifestyle and visual needs.
