Optometrist/Director/Owner and Founder of the Optometrist

A graduate from the University of Johannesburg and Cape Town University of Technology, Penny graduated Cum Laude in her first course Optical Dispensing where after she studied further at University of Johannesburg for Optometry.

For me my optometry dream started in Grade 9, for some reason from that time I always wanted to become an Optometrist.  I always wanted to help people and thought that I can do this through vision.  I have been an entrepreneur since a young age, always wanting to do my own thing.

After opening my very first practice in Bredasdorp in 2009, my vision and dream expanded from there on out.  My little eye shop became a hot spot and I quickly realized that I wanted to expand my little business into something great one day.

My business partner Melanie has helped me in every way to realize my dream and together we live out our passion for optometry every day.

Our brand is unique, fun, interesting and affordable.  We never stop looking and learning about the newest frames and lenses on the market and strive to bring our patients best optics every day!

When Penny is not at work she enjoys spending time with her husband Henry and two beautiful children Daniel and Tatum.
