Eye Care


Getting a new pair of glasses should be as simple as ordering a cup of coffee.

At Optique, we continually strive to make eye care more accessible and easier to understand.

We make going to the optometrist interesting, exciting, and professional, and our goal is to keep it that way!

Why is our eye tests only


Our famous R99 eye test may sound too good to be true…

As an inspired, proudly South African organisation, we are aware of the struggles many face to access proper healthcare, and even more so, proper eye care.

Knowing the status of your vision and eye health is surely a basic human right.

By offering our professional services at R99 in the private sector, we aim to honour our role as primary health care providers in providing access to high-quality eye care for all.

What Makes Us Unique?


When you choose a frame off the shelf at other practices, that exact, sometimes very old frame is usually the one used for your spectacles.

At Optique, all of our in-store frames are just samples, and you get a brand new, out-of-the-box frame directly from our suppliers.

You will be the first and only person to try on your new spectacles!


We also wear glasses and know that sometimes life just happens.

If your glasses accidentally break or the lenses get badly scratched within the first 12 months after receiving them, we will replace them with the same frame, lenses, and prescription.

No questions, no co-payment.


If you are struggling to adapt to your new lenses or after wearing your frame you realize it’s not a great fit – we’ll give you up to 60 days to come back and we will replace, change or refund your glasses to ensure you are a happy chappy


If we were to stock some of the costly branded frames on the market, we would not be able to: 

Save you 30% since we would need to pay third-party distributors and brand-license fees.

Give you an unlimited choice and a brand new frame on every visit.

Ensure consistency in the quality and variety we provide. 


We’ve exclusively partnered with the single leading, global suppliers in everything we do.

That’s including our frame, lenses and contact lenses suppliers as well as the eye testing equipment.

You can rest assured you’re getting the best product and service, at an affordable price – each time, every time.


While everyone enjoys something for free, we know that nothing is ever truly for free and that you are probably paying through either inflated prices or poorer quality.

At Optique, we value honest, simple, straight-forward business, where you always get the best quality at the correct price.

Everyone, any time, all year round.

Talking about partnering with the best – we have started rolling out Costa Coffee kiosks in our practices. Costa Coffee is the second-largest coffee chain globally after Starbucks.

Costa has over 4,000 retail outlets in 30+ countries with highly trained baristas, coffee vending operations, and serving coffee from Costa’s state-of-the-art roasters.
