Our Vision

During our renowned in-depth eye examinations, we use over forty years of experience and the latest vision care equipment to look deeper into your eyes so we can evaluate the health of your eyes and the rest of your body.

We aim to provide excellent eye care so that every patient can:

  • See well with an individualised, top-quality solution, whether in glasses or contact lenses.
  • Look good and feel comfortable with a wide selection of frames to suit every face and pocket.
  • Have peace of mind that your eyes are well cared for.

Meet the team

Dr de Smedt founded De Smedt Optometrists in 1983 in Pretoria. He can be considered a pioneer in Optometry in South Africa since he was one of the first optometrists to obtain a postgraduate qualification in treating binocular vision abnormalities and diagnosing and treating ocular disease. Now with two thriving practices in Waverley and Pretoria, the family-run De Smedt Optometrists continues to offer quality eye care services to the community.
