“Our customers feel more like family to me” I overheard one of my co-workers say, and it puts an instant smile on my face.  To me, that means MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! You see, we are a small “family” of co-workers who still believe in good old-fashioned service.  In a world where so many focus only on monetary gain, I often think back to my early days in optometry.  “Look after each patient, and your finances will look after itself”, I can still hear my mentor say. 

With this simple motto in mind, I started vdm optometrists in the leafy suburb of Kenridge in 2003.  Back then the practice was called Kenridge Optometrists, but with the opening of our second practice in Paarl years later, I decided to change the name to vdm optometrists.

If you haven’t guessed it by now, we take service seriously!  Combining quality eyecare with fashion eyewear is our passion.  We want to design your next pair of spectacles, so pop into one of our practices, and meet the team who will make it happen!

If you have any suggestions on how we can enhance our offering, I would love to hear from you!

Oh yes, and if you enjoy the way we do business, please tell a friend.

Children's Vision

It is important to have a child's eyes examined whether there appears to be a problem or not. Many eye problems in children do not have symptoms or signs.
